About Karen Rohler, Manager

Established in 1985, Portage Lakes Fitness Center (PLFC) today is a collaboration of the Coventry Township Local School District and the Akron Area YMCA. The school district owns the facility, and its operations have been managed by the YMCA since October 2009. PLFC’s employees are YMCA staff members trained to uphold the Y’s mission and standards. The center currently has a staff of about 30 including management, aquatic, floor, desk, maintenance, exercise instruction and personal training professionals.

PLFC is Unique among fitness/wellness centers in the area. It is family facility for ages 10 and up (youth must be accompanied by parents). It is equipped with more exercise amenities—both land and water—than most others. And unlike many places, regularly scheduled classes at PLFC are free for members!
