There are tons of gyms and fitness centers around. What makes the
Atlantic Club unique?
Our state-of-the-art health club includes indoor and outdoor pools, Summer cabana club, large fitness facilities, racquetball and basketball courts, tennis courts, hiking trails, hot tubs, steam rooms, spacious and accommodating locker rooms, and a café. There are always new and exciting fitness classes and programs to participate in, and support from some of the top personal trainers at the Shore. The Atlantic Club stays on top of industry trends and brings cutting edge programs to our members. One of our newest programs is the MYZONE belt which is a new innovative heart rate based system that uses wireless and cloud technology to accurately and conveniently monitor physical activity. It monitors heart rate, calories, time and MYZONE Effort Points (MEPs), with a focus on rewarding effort rather than fitness. MYZONE boosts motivation and exercise enjoyment by providing instant and ongoing feedback helping people of any shape, size, age or interest to get more active anywhere.
All health clubs seem to specialize in something - some are no
frills, some focus on tennis or another sport. What's the Atlantic Club's specialty?
At The Atlantic Club because we have it all, you always hear our members comment that they love that there is always so much to do here. You never get bored. Which is why we have members that have been with us for 36 years. We have variety in programming, social events, shopping, Milagro Salon and Spa, Catering, and incredible health and wellness facility and services.
With the nation facing an obesity epidemic, what are some of the
ways the Atlantic Club is helping, or can help, to teach healthier lifestyles?
We are very much aware of the obesity epidemic and are constantly creating new exciting programs at the club and within our community to get children and adults moving! Moving is key! We are going to be focusing strongly on type 2 diabetes in the next year and hope to make a difference in the lives who suffer from it.
What is it about the Wall community that keeps The Atlantic Club here?
It's our home! Our family, friends, and children for 36 years. Everyone at one point in their lives seems to have crossed paths through the Atlantic Club whether its been for a birthday party, sporting event, project graduation, summer camp, the Atlantis Prep school, or being members.
