Operated by the city of Germantown, the recently renovated Germantown Athletic Club has been helping regional residents stay healthy and have fun for the past 20 years. Hit the 40-meter heated indoor pool to brood over broken dreams of becoming a small-mouth bass. Or taunt the sun, which never learned to swim, by gliding through laps under its jealous gaze in the 25-meter outdoor pool. Indoor basketball courts let you practice your game in the face of all weather conditions, and an elevated indoor walking track gives your legs the exercise they need without assaulting your nose with the stench of fresh air. High-quality weight-training equipment is on-hand to work your arms and legs, a cycling room features 25 bikes for furious stationary pedaling, and group-fitness classes such as Ab Lab and Mat Pilates are available to help avoid feelings of workout isolation.
