River Bend Athletic Club has been serving South County's health and fitness conscious population for decades. Offering an extensive array of services and equipment, River Bend caters to the first-time fitness enthusiast as well as the conditioned athlete - and everyone in between! Clean and spacious, our 26,000 sq ft facility includes 3 weight rooms, 39 Cardio Machines, Dedicated Spinning, Group Exercise, Yoga Studio, Performance Training, TRX and Boxing Center, Basketball, Racquetball and Squash Courts. Our recently renovated locker rooms include showers and dry heat saunas, and a comfortable WiFi lounge area offers space for members to relax and connect after their workouts. Tanning, massage, baby-sitting, and towel services are also available.
With over 50 classes offered each week, group exercise enthusiasts are sure to find something to suit their needs. Well known as having "South County's Strongest Spin Program" we are also on the cutting edge of the industry with our TRX suspension-training classes. Traditional group exercise classes, including ZUMBA, Body Works, and Step have always been a popular choice among members, and our Yoga and Pilates instructors are some of the best in the business. All group-class instructors carry national certification in their area of expertise. Check our Class Schedule to see what is available.
Originally opened as a racquet club in 1979, River Bend is the only facility in the area to offer both racquetball and squash to our members. A full-sized basketball court is also available for pick-up games and league rentals. Members reserve court time with a simple phone call to the front desk, and unlimited court time is included in all membership plans. Balls, racquets, and eye wear are all available on loan.
