In our HWC Group Fitness department offers over 75 classes each week: from step, cardio interval training, Spinning, muscle conditioning and athletic workouts to seven styles of yoga, Pilates, senior specific exercise, stretch and much more. Our certified instructors are full of enthusiasm and highly-qualified to instruct a variety of fitness and age levels.

In addition to land classes, a multitude of aquatic group fitness classes are available each week. Our indoor pool is also available to members for lap swimming. The outdoor pool at the HWC is open seasonally and is the location for our children's summer swimming lessons.

If recreation is more your type of exercise, how about a good game of basketball or racquetball?

We also provide two outdoor tennis courts, with optional tennis lessons provided by our very own tennis pro. We also offer various classes in weight control, nutrition, stress management and other wellness topics on an ongoing basis.
