With a clear vision, strong community leadership and the generosity of many donors, Harlan and the surrounding communities have an exceptional facility that will improve health and wellness for generations to come.

The 44,439 square foot facility located at 1213 Chatburn Avenue opened its doors for business on August 20, 2010 with 782 membership units and 2,057 individual members.  Today, we celebrate 1,398 membership units and 4,315 individual members.  We have been overwhelmed with the outstanding response from this community and the surrounding area.

We offer something for all ages and levels of fitness.  We emphasize family exercise and recreation. We provide childcare for those with small children for a nominal fee.  If you aren’t yet a member, come and see what you are missing today!
