San Luis Obispo Health Clubs: Something for Everyone

by Cathy Enns

When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, residents of the San Luis Obispo area are front and center. How could it be otherwise? Whether the favorite activity is hiking, surfing, bicycling, running or something else, no place has more to offer outdoors than the Central Coast.

When residents can't get outside, San Luis Obispo health clubs help keep locals on track. They offer advantages even a favorite sport can't deliver: personal trainers, opportunities for cross-training and shelter from bad weather. Even those fortunate enough to get outdoors frequently find that one of the San Luis Obispo health clubs is a welcome addition to their fitness strategy.

One of the most well-known of the San Luis Obispo health clubs is Kennedy Club Fitness. Started by a local couple in 1981, Kennedy now boasts four locations throughout the county, and possibly the most complete menu of fitness activities. Depending on which location you choose--Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo, Atascadero or Paso Robles--you'll find a competition-sized pool, courts for basketball, racketball and squash, and even a "beach" volleyball court to go along with the exercise and weight machines. All locations offer various classes and group activities, and some have childcare available.

Athlon Health is another company with multiple health clubs: San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles. At Athlon, the emphasis is on the individual goals of each member. A wide variety of programs serve the needs of everyone from professional athletes to beginners, and there's physical therapy available to assist people recovering from illness or injury.

Curves, the well-known circuit-training center for women, has locations in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, 5 Cities and Guadalupe. Another option just for women is Equilibrium Fitness in SLO.

For a more traditional gym experience there's Gold's Gym in San Luis Obispo. Another choice is Estrada's Gym, a place that has been around for many years and is extremely popular with bodybuilders.

Are you looking for something entirely different? Maybe a new way to keep you interested in working out, or something the entire family can enjoy? Try Crux Climbing Center in San Luis Obispo. Describing itself as “the most technologically advanced climbing gym in the world,” Crux has more than 1000 climbing routes on 35 different walls. They design programs for groups as well as individuals, and even offer the facility for team building exercises and birthday parties.

Health clubs in San Luis Obispo County are plentiful and tuned to every need. There's no excuse for staying on the couch!
