The staff at Franklin Athletic Club knows that staying in shape requires a multifaceted exercise routine and dietary regimen. Their newly renovated facility reflects this understanding, with a multitude of exercise equipment, fitness classes, and an onsite restaurant.
Club members can join TRX suspension-training, martial-arts, dance, and yoga classes led by experienced instructors. They can also develop personal-training routines using more than 10,000 square feet of free weights and cardio equipment. A 20-yard indoor pool facilitates year-round aquatic exercise, and an outdoor pool allows karate students to chop gigantic blocks of ice in the winter.
After a racquetball game or a match on 1 of 13 indoor tennis courts, athletes head to the club's Babylon Cafe to replenish their energy with American and Mediterranean dishes such as chicken wraps and falafel plates.
