FRANKLIN, NC
I'm very pleased with the facility. It is clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Each person is treated as an individual instead of a number or just a member. I've enjoyed every minute I've been there and look forward to going every day I get to go.

every time a family member visits the center they remark how much we have here in little Franklin, NC. Gym memberships overseas are around 150 euros/month. Suburban Atlanta have few comprehensive clubs, so you pay to swim, work out, and go to another place for classes. thank you for such a great place to maintain health as we all age.

I love going to this center. It makes exercise fun! I go to TAi Chai, swimming exercise and fun dance and weightlifting combo class with stretching to end it all. I try to go to my 6 classes a week. I can also work out on other machines whenever I can find extra time. Hours are so flexible that it makes going to center easy. Staff at center are very friendly and helpful.

Our pool water system uses solar heating to keep our water at a comfortable temperature year round. That same technology also heats our shower and sink water.

Smoothie Bar

At our smoothie bar, we use biodegradable cups made from corn resin. Unlike regular plastic cups, these will degrade over time and not clog our landfills.

ZeroFlush

To cut down on waste water our urinals use Zeroflush technology. This eliminates thousands of gallons of wastewater each year.
