A consortium of three expansive athletic facilities, Oregon Athletic Clubs hosts a staff of workout gurus that guide visitors to healthier lifestyles in modern fitness facilities. At each location, guests trim down or stay in shape during a schedule of sweat manufacturing classes that include yoga, Pilates, BodyPump, Zumba, and high-altitude clown chasing. The Hawthorn Farm facility entices exercisers with a cycling studio, squash courts, a 30-foot rock wall, and an aquatics center with two indoor pools, an outdoor pool, and hot tub. Personal trainers also provide personalized health evaluations and body-composition measurements during fitness assessments (a $60 value). RiverPlace guests can break bread over a postworkout luncheon at the RiverPlace Cafe, before flexing their granite muscles to intimidate mannequins at the mall.
Oregon Athletic Clubs
The three Oregon Athletic Clubs welcome members into an oasis of healthy living, each developed to encourage those aspiring to wellness to reach their fitness goals. In addition to cardio and weight equipment for solo workouts, personal trainers tailor workouts to meet individual goals and lead group yoga and Pilates sessions to strengthen and flex physiques. As parents pedal into shape in the cycling studio or unwind at the onsite spa, kids can caper about or discuss their investment portfolios in the childcare center.
At each location, patrons can practice not drowning in the indoor pools and then retire to relaxation at the locker-room saunas. The Hawthorn Farm Athletic Club invites members to splash into the outdoor pool and lounge on the lawn and patio. To refuel for the day’s cartwheel quota, the clubs’ restaurants dish up light fare including salads and paninis.
