A tennis lesson is only as helpful as its instructor. Thankfully, Doylestown Tennis Club has a veteran staff of certified USPTA pros on hand to coach players of all experience levels. The club features eight indoor courts and four outdoor courts that are put to use during friendly games and competitive league matches, as well as a host of other
amenities including a lounge, clubhouse, kitchen, nursery, and locker rooms.
The Narberth Tennis Club, which houses the Julian Krinsky School, is well equipped to suit sporting needs with four well-lit, high-visibility, U.S. Open–blue indoor tennis courts and top-of-the-line golf-course simulators. Golf lessons take place under the watchful eye of head golf pro Grant Griffiths, who provides swing instruction with indoor golf-course simulators and coaching instruction with indoor brain-knowledge. Participants are encouraged to bring their own rackets, clubs, and balls, but just like heading to the pool's lost and found when you forget your swimsuit, there are usually some available on hand to borrow.
Since 1979, the staff of Lehigh Valley Racquet and Fitness Clubs has made it their mission to obliterate any barriers keeping their members from working out. Each club is open 24 hours a day year-round, with free childcare available during specific times of day. That commitment to availability helps even the busiest people find time to hop on Hammer Strength and Cybex strength-training circuits, StairMasters, and other equipment. Group fitness classes get students sweating as they execute punches in Turbo Kick cardio-kickboxing sessions or dance to Zumba's Latin-inspired workouts. Full-body boot-camp workouts are also available, mixing in calisthenics, strength training, and agility drills to continuously challenge bodies. All of the clubs? personal trainers hold bachelor's degrees in health-related fields or have national certifications from accredited organizations.
After their workouts, members can unwind in the whirlpool, sauna, or steam rooms, then drop off their free rental towels for cleaning. For sports lovers, the Allentown location also boasts basketball, volleyball, squash, and badminton courts, as well as 11 outdoor and 8 indoor tennis courts.
Since its inception in 1919, the historic Oakmont Tennis Club has improved ball-smacking skills and boosted camaraderie and sportsmanship amongst racket-swingers. Tennis pros such as George Henry, once the coach of Venus and Serena Williams, use Oakmont's soft ground of seven maintained red-clay courts for instruction and one-on-one domination. With single or family membership, you’ll get use of the clubhouse, unlimited court time, and discounted rates on lessons. Members can use Oakmont's comfy clubhouse to take a brisk shower, secure their five-leaf clover once kissed by John McEnroe in one of the lockers, and stroll around the wraparound deck.
Gyms provide people with all of the equipment and guidance that they need to pursue their individual fitness goals. AFC Fitness is more than a gym though. Instead, the centers provide their members with a comprehensive range of services intended to help people not only get in better shape, but also begin living healthier lifestyles in general. This broad approach is apparent throughout the centers' massive selection of group fitness classes, which includes everything from aerial yoga and Pilates to CrossFit workouts and high-intensity water aerobics.
Personal trainers are also on hand to lend their expertise and coaches offer sports-specific training that covers the fundamentals of baseball or tennis. However, the focus isn't limited to guided workouts and fitness classes. AFC Fitness's physical therapists can help people gradually recover from the mobility-limiting effects of injury or surgery and the registered dietitians provide customized consultations that explain the nutritional value of fresh produce compared to plastic fruit.
Lavner Camps offers enriching summer camps for kids in sports, technology, creative arts, and education. Camps, held at the Kimmel Center overlooking New York City or Towson University in Maryland, cover a wide range of subjects and learning opportunities. Each one is designed using the same philosophy: a carefully-crafted curriculum led by expert instructors who are passionate about campers succeeding, making friends, and having fun. This lasting philosophy ensures campers have fun in a safe environment that encourages learning and friendship.
Campers of all skill levels can sign up for a variety of sessions where they can learn to build and program robots, how to write code and create apps, improve skills in Minecraft, design dresses and jewelry, enhance their knowledge of chess strategies, and more. Many of these camps are held during the summer, but there are also year-round programs available for kids who want to keep learning.
