In this digital age one of the constant concerns a parent has is making sure their children maintain a healthy balance between their digital non-activity and being active. Tapping, swiping, and texting isn't going to led to a healthy lifestyle.
And parents are often no better. We sit on our butts as we commute to work, work at our desks and watch our digital devices once we get home. But what if there was a place that entire families could enjoy together while getting in an awesome workout?
I had the chance to check out ClubSport in Fremont. It's a unique health club that's been in business for over 20 years. I brought my two teenage daughters to check it out. We were greeted by a ClubSport rep who showed us around the expansive facility. And let me back up a little. As we parked in the very full lot on a Saturday we were curious about a facility that could be so busy.
But once we got our tour of the club we discovered why. We passed massage rooms, a full outdoor olympic size pool with hot tub, tennis courts, basketball courts, racket ball rooms, weight rooms, and a huge room filled with treadmills, elipticals, cycles, and much more. There's also a nice cafe with healthy, calorie conscious selections and a Starbucks.
I used nearly every piece of equipment in the large and spacious workout room which overlooks the outdoor pool. From elliptical machines to treadmills, rowing machines and weights, it was a great workout. Instructors are on-hand to show you how to properly use each piece of equipment. And reps are constantly around wiping down each piece after each use. Nice. For teens 16 and under, a personal trainer can work with them and ensure a properly balanced routine.
After our workout we headed back to the locker room which was full of nice amenities. I used the steam room which was next to a nice large indoor hot tub. Plenty of towels and toiletries are supplied and loads of lockers with digital locks are provided. The only drawback for us? The location. If only there was one closer to Cupertino!
ClubSport can be found in the following locations. Great for the whole family - check it out!
