Eagle Pointe Recreational Complex promotes athletic excellence with its terrain of tennis and racquetball courts, jogging trails, and an indoor heated lap pool. Members will enjoy unlimited access to 35 group classes per week, including yoga, Pilates, and Zumba, taught by nationally certified instructors.

Prior to getting started, all members will receive a weight-room orientation and complimentary fitness evaluation performed by a nationally certified fitness specialist. Free strength, endurance, flexibility, and wingspan tests are also available to calibrate a starting point before setting sail into the sweaty seas.
At each of its 31 area locations, the YMCA of Greater Houston pursues a mission to bring health, wellness, and personal growth to communities.

Illusion Institute takes its name from the ultimate illusionists: basketball players. They’ll feign a dribble to the left, then charge to the right. They’ll fake a pass, then take a shot. The trainers keep their illusionist students sharp with private or group basketball training, camps, and game recording.
