The air inside the facility fills with the rhythmic taps of green tennis balls volleying across courts, a staccato symphony punctuated by the grunts and whoops of players perfecting their game. A typical morning at The Naperville Tennis Club reflects its dedication to fostering an atmosphere of recreation while helping members achieve their personal bests. Alongside open play, a team of seasoned pros helms a host of tennis programs for adults and juniors that range from basic techniques to competitive training programs.

Away from the courts, the club’s outdoor L-shaped swimming pool beckons aquanauts to leap from the diving board into six lanes of sparkling waters. Swim lessons help unleash kids’ inner merpeople, and adult programs are a chance to interact with other grownups while doing laps and exchanging business cards midbackstroke.

In just more than five years, Daniel Palos has acquired an impressive r?sum? as a bodywork practitioner. He practices Eastern and Western techniques as a state-licensed massage therapist, he's certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, and he also teaches at Northwestern College's School of Massage Therapy.

Beyond the Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages he performs at Sacred Touch (located inside Hidden Spa), Daniel specializes in methods geared toward athletes. As a mixed martial artist and as a former personal trainer, he understands the aches and pains that can stem from sports or drinking Gatorade too fast. He uses Kinesio tape in his treatments to reduce pressure on pain receptors and the lymphatic-drainage system, and he incorporates proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation to increase flexibility. Daniel also believes in using holistic practices to improve well-being, including a therapy called The Spiritus, a two-hour session that incorporates chakra balancing, aromatherapy, tibetan singing bowls, and crystals.

With its bare hands, Norris Recreation Center tears through the piecemeal membership and class fees that keep exercisers from traditional gyms, and flings open the doors to its modern facility. A gift from the St. Charles–native Norris family, the nonprofit establishment makes living healthier a viable option. Within its stone walls, five dedicated rooms bustle with the whir of cardio and weight-training equipment, and swimmers careen down the 12 lanes of the 50-meter pool during lessons, lap swims, and open pool time. The squeaks of pivoting sneakers peal off the racquetball court's walls, and twosomes, foursomes, and Billie Jean King's army of clones descend on the four tennis courts, which guests rent by the hour. Members can simmer in the center's saunas or whirlpool, or shuck off tension with a swedish, sport-injury, orthopedic, or deep-tissue massage before showering and retrieving their gym bags from complimentary lockers.

Trained instructors lead 13 free classes throughout the week, with diverse aerobic curricula that include cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. For individualized guidance, personal trainers coach clients out of workout plateaus. As parents work out, childcare professionals engage lads and lasses with interactive games, toys, and movies in the center's nursery, where kids build social skills and imagination while pretending to be heroic astronauts, firefighters, or accountants.
