Our weight gym is equipped with free weights and cable machines. You can request an orientation with fitness staff to learn how to properly use these machines.
Our Circuit Studio is designed to give you a full body workout, FAST! This style of training is based on a high volume but low resistance weight stations (8) combined with cardio stations (8) that you complete for 60 seconds each, with 45 second rest intervals in between. The Circuit Studio is focused on improving muscle tone while also improving cardiovascular fitness. It is a popular alternative if you are looking for a quick full body workout, variety in your workouts, or are new to fitness.
Our heated indoor pool is a member favorite. The temperature ranges between 85-87 degrees. The pool is 3 feet deep in the shallow end and 9 feet deep in the deep end. All non-class swimming is done by reservation. Reserve a lap lane on the Swim page of our site.
Explore a new yoga flow, join a pilates class or just get in a new stretch between activities.
