At the Princeton Club, exercisers build muscle and boost heart health using advanced gear that's accessible 24/7. Members can sprint in place on cardiovascular equipment furnished with personal TVs and a cyborg to run for them, and they can tussle with gravity on weight training equipment from brands such as Nautilus and Hammerstrength. Push around some liquid inside the natatorium's six-lane lap pool, or swim against the constant watery influx of the resistance current pool. Free childcare for members allows them the freedom to attend group fitness classes in species such as Pilates, Zumba express, and aerobic knitting. During the included personal-training session, a muscle architect masterminds a workout blueprint customized to each client's fitness goals and abilities.
Soothing hydro massage eases the tension that exerted muscles collect with the gentle power of pressurized water, and a sauna gives sweat glands a postworkout workout. Members can also soak up vitamin D with tanning services that expose the body to light energy and trademark infringement lawsuits from sun gods.
Dave Gerry started the Princeton Club with three simple tenets in mind: great trainers, exceptional equipment, and easy access. To realize that dream, he assembled a team of American College of Sports Medicine–certified personal trainers to helm the cardio and strength-training centers 24 hours a day.
Whether working out solo, in a group class, or with a trainer to remind them that bench-pressing beehives is safer with a spotter, guests can drop their young ones off at the free childcare center. Splashes fill the natatorium as swimmers paddle across the six-lane lap pool, as the resistance-current pool's adjustable waves enable guests to walk in place. A dip in the whirlpool soothes stress, and the steam room's eucalyptus aromatherapy and sauna's rejuvenating heat send bodies back into the world refreshed. Above the club, tennis and soccer players soak in vistas of Madison as they duke it out on the rooftop garden's turf. The competition continues indoors on basketball, racquetball, and volleyball courts.
