Owned by Julia Mancuso, a professional ski racer and Olympic gold medalist, Performance Training Center pairs focused sports-performance training with energizing group exercise classes and one of the largest free-weight collections in the Lake Tahoe area. Sprint tracks usher guests into the sports-performance center, where BOSU balls and TRX suspension straps help visitors perform bodyweight exercises. Medicine balls strengthen core muscles when lifted or tossed, and kettlebells make arm muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. A multipurpose workout area teems with selectorized circuits of strength-training equipment and a cardio deck stocked with machines for trotting, pedaling, and stair climbing.
Each day pass also includes access to the facility’s exercise classes, which range from full-body, cardio-kickboxing workouts to spinning sessions on adjustable-resistance bikes. Though designed for skiers and snowboarders, winter-sports conditioning classes cultivate agility and strength that can help runners, gymnasts, and full-contact bocce players up their game. After sweat sessions, guests can hit the locker rooms, where hot showers soothe fledgling muscle ripples.
