Health Clubs

Fitness & Recreation

Milwaukee residents like to stay in shape year-round. In addition to the many tennis courts, jogging paths and bicycle trails located within the public park systems, there are numerous indoor facilities as well. Health clubs vary from exercise-only facilities to full-service family destinations with classes, day care, weight-loss programs, basketball and indoor tennis courts, as well as access to personal trainers, nutritionists, and massage therapists.

Most area health clubs offer a variety of membership packages that are tailored to individual budgets and exercise needs. In addition, many Milwaukee-area employers pay a portion or all of the membership dues for health clubs as part of their comprehensive employee benefit or wellness programs.
