Mount Auburn Club strives to be a one-stop shop for fitness, wellness, and recreation. Members can sweat as they cheer on their favorite infomercials in the cardio theater, plunge into the salt-filtrated lap pool, or practice their tennis strokes out on 11 indoor and outdoor courts, which were featured on the Tennis Channel. Professional fitness instructors pump upbeat music for more than 90 group fitness classes each week, from Les Mills classes such as BodyPump to group cycling and Zumba. The mind/body classes include five styles of yoga, tai chi, and ballet barre. Joint-friendly aquatics classes take place in the four-lane, 75-foot-long lap pool overlooking the gardens and deck. Swimmers can recover in the whirlpool after practicing their synchronized doggy paddling.
The club's personal trainers help members map out fitness plans centered on achieving their personal goals. After they've worked out on equipment such as TRX Suspension Training bands or BOSU balls, exercisers can head to the café for one of the healthful creations or submit themselves to the spa team’s capable hands for massages, facials, and other pampering treatments.
