The 15,000 square foot facility at FH&FC boasts a 25 yard heated indoor swimming pool and hot tub. We have recently expanded the locker room showers to accommodate our increased member usage. Each locker room has a Finnelo sauna.

The newly expanded weight training room added over 4000 lbs of "free weights" and equipment. We have Cybex benches and at the core of our new room is the Cybex cable cross machine that one can perform hundreds of different exercises and sport specific moves such as the arm swing used in golf or the arm motions used by a swimmer against the resistance of the weights and pulleys. This has been a great addition to the full line of tried and true Nautilus equipment.

For those who want to improve their cardiovascular system we offer Star Trac treadmills, Stairmaster steppers, Liferower and Concept II rowers, a Versa Climber, Precor Elliptical Trainers, Schwinn Air Dynes, and Lifecycles.

To help each new member get started correctly a free orientation is given by the training staff. After three sessions most members are well on their way to a safe and effective program. Additional training and instruction is available at a very reasonable hourly rate.

Nursery Many parents find it difficult to exercise while their children are in the room or nearby needing their attention. We have solved that problem with our fun and free nursery. Leave your children with our caring and safety conscious staff while you workout!

Two professional racquetball courts are available for use. Reservations may be made up to two days in advance.
