Davis Athletic Club tones and maintains bodies of all ages with a fully equipped, 24,000-square-foot fitness facility and a variety of group exercise classes. A schedule packed with more than 50 classes per week— including Pilates, Zumba, and yoga—invites members to join in unified self-improvement. Those who prefer to fly solo can win an imaginary Tour de France atop a stationary bike or catch up on news on one of many mounted TVs in the cardio room. Multiple free weights, Stairmasters, and elliptical and cross-training machines proffer ample sweat-factory fuel, and a padded martial-arts room and basketball and racquetball courts appease sporty types. Iron-pumping parents can drop off fidgety offspring age 12 and younger for complimentary care with DAC’s energetic staff, or supervise children 14 and younger as they utilize the gym's facilities.
Two heated pools welcome paddlers to enjoy gravity-cheating laps or overcome their reluctance to kick defenseless water during swimming lessons led by a certified instructor. Personal trainers are also on hand to help custom-build workouts and demonstrate post-workout sighing techniques for use in the sauna, steam room, or whirlpool. Members also get discounts in DAC’s on-site hair salon, ideal for post-workout coiffing.
Davis Athletic Club
Since 1981, the family-owned-and-operated Davis Athletic Club has served as a multipurpose fitness stop for visitors of all ages. Its gym equipment inhabits specialized facilities for strength training, cardio workouts, and martial arts drills, and the indoor soccer field and basketball court accommodate both casual and competitive players. With two heated pools—one for laps and one for functional exercise—members can practice aqua aerobics or earn a master’s degree in floating from swim school. Nearly every room of the 24,000-square-foot space also hosts group classes, channeling the power of camaraderie to transform physiques through Zumba, yoga and Les Mills’s BodyPump routines.
The staff, from certified personal trainers to childcare supervisors, all devote individualized attention to each guest. With amenities including a CrossFit gym and hair salon, the club unites its members under a roof that covers countless approaches to health.
