It can be hard to find one's exercise of choice with options such as the back and forth of tennis, the melodic strokes of lap swimming, or an agile jaunt on the balance beam. Guests at Chelsea Piers Connecticut are saved the burden of such decisions as they take advantage of some of the benefits of the 400,000-square-foot facility's exhaustive exercise options.
Modeled after the namesake location in New York City, Chelsea Piers Connecticut provides facilities and instruction for all ages and abilities. The new fitness facility,

The Aquatics Center's Olympic size, 50-meter indoor pool caters to adults, while a 6,000-square-foot water play area entertains water-winged children. At the Field House, runners jog on the 1/5-mile track that circles the 100-yard turf field used for lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, flag football, and more.
Chelsea Piers also boasts a full Gymnastics Center, two full-size indoor ice rinks, Squash Club, Tennis Club, as well as basketball and volleyball courts. Members can also take advantage of in-house babysitting services in order to secure some much-needed alone time to test-drive the Adventure Center's trampoline Jump Zone or Climb Zone.

Wintertime becomes a bit more bearable when families take outings to the The Rinx at Harborfront Park. Whether strapping on rented skates or their own, skaters glide on the ice in the open air with the glittering water as backdrop. But When winter turns to spring, the rink undergoes a transformation. And instead of ice skating, visitors can glide across the rink on roller skates, getting plenty of fresh air while skating next to the harbor.
