Private Reformer Pilates Workouts

Pilates is a full-body, strength training workout that helps create long, lean muscles. Pilates also has many fitness benefits, like:

  • Improved balance, posture, coordination and flexibility
  • Increased core strength and range of motion
  • Enhanced mobility

Reformer Pilates utilizes reformer technology - machines with springs that generate resistance. These machines help isolate specific muscle groups in ways you can not do while standing. If you have an injury, the reformer can be useful to maintain proper alignment and provide support.

Group class times are:

  • Tuesday/Thursday: 6 a.m., 7:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. 

Also available are private and duet classes.

COST: $60 one-hour private; $30 one-hour duet; $20 group class

    To schedule your one-on-one workout, stop by the service desk, email, or contact Rem at (269) 501-5185.

    Gym floor and racquet sport courts make exercise fun

    Our gym floor includes two full size basketball courts - perfect for shooting hoops and perfecting your game. Due to COVID, no leagues or game play is allowed.

    The space is open and bright, and can also be used as a space for your own workouts - like running, sled pushing, box jumping and more.

    A properly fitted mask must be warn at all times inside the club, including during game play.


    • Reservations are available in 30-minute incitements. You can reserve a court for up to one hour at a time.
    • Two players are allowed on a court at any time.
    • You can reserve a court up to three days in advance. To make a reservation, call (269) 544-3200 or stop by the service desk.


    • Pickup basketball games are available on half of the basketball court every Monday and Wednesday from 6-8 p.m.
      • The second half of the court remains available for members to use for other activities.


    • Pickup pickleball games are available on half of the basketball court every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8 p.m.
      • The second half of the court remains available for members to use for other activities.
