Midlothian Athletic Club helps visitors fight fat and fortify their fitness routines with access to the 70,000-square-foot fitness facility, stocked with cardio equipment, exercise machines, and more than 70 weekly classes. A fleet of FreeMotion Elite weight equipment lies between workout benches and more than 60 cardio machines, working together to help patrons sleeken silhouettes or leave muscles ripped for display at the beach or on extremely casual Fridays. Body Sculpting classes target specific muscle groups with body bars, resistance bands, and bodyweight exercises, and Body Flow workouts build flexibility and balance by blending yoga, Pilates, and tai-chi poses into a relaxing dance-like routine.
During personal training sessions, certified instructors help exercisers avoid injury and strains by teaching proper form. Family memberships include childcare services, allowing wee ones to play with their peers in a safe, fun environment as parents hit the gym. After an invigorating workout, visitors can relax by taking a hot shower or sitting in the sauna to open pores and other people's mail with a healthy dose of steam.
Midlothian Athletic Club
Since 1988, Midlothian Athletic Club has dedicated its 70,000 square feet to myriad forms of achieving healthy living. Whether members want to hone tennis and racquetball skills, break a sweat in group exercise classes such as spinning and BodyPump, or relax in a sauna, they can do it at the MAC. The staff troll a stock of cardio and strength-training equipment, including FreeMotion Elite weight machines, Life Fitness treadmills and ellipticals, and Precor machines, ready to dole out technique pointers. At the indoor pool, swimmers can get a workout on the lap lanes, slip down water slides, or pretend to be toddlers in the kiddie pool. The club also has six indoor lanes, where instructors lead water-aerobics classes that are gentler on joints than moon aerobics.
To help guests recover after a hard workout, the Midlothian Athletic Club hosts many means of relaxation. The massage therapists calibrate their fingers to several styles of kneading, including deep-tissue, Swedish, and myofascial release massage. At the MAC Cafe, chefs sear turkey burgers, bake lime-chili parmesan fries, and blend protein shakes to order for nutritious refueling.
