About Us

At Western Racquet & Fitness Club, we give you the training and support you need to reach every one of your health and fitness goals.

We believe better is possible.

It can be a struggle to be–and stay your best. With growing responsibilities, more demands on your time, and increased pressures at work and at home, it's easy to lose sight of your health and fitness goals.
It doesn't have to be that way though.
At Western Racquet & Fitness Club, we can help you take back control by creating a personalized fitness plan that works for you and your schedule. We won't just help you set the right goals, we'll give you all the support and coaching you need to reach each one of them.

Hi, I'm Mary Thomas

I know that when it comes to our health and fitness, it's about more than a number or size.
It's about staying healthy so that we can be there for those around us. It's about that sense of accomplishment, knowing that we're feeling, moving, and living our best.
That's why in 1974, my family started a club to help individuals from all types of backgrounds improve their overall health and fitness. They did it by giving them access to the industry's leading trainers and a wide variety of programs, built to meet each person where they were at.
Today, we're continuing that tradition by helping hundreds of people reach their own personalized health and fitness goals each year.
