AQUATICS CENTER

Aquatics Center

Briarcliff Manor

Take the plunge! We have two large swimming pools to accommodate lots of swim activities. Our Lap Pool is kept just a little cool at 79 – 82 degrees for our lap swimmers. The warmer Program Pool is kept at about 84 – 88 degrees and is used primarily for swim lessons and group aquatic classes. It also has lanes for lap swimming. The zero entry section of the pool is the perfect place for our littlest swimmers to play. The whirlpool is for members and guests age 18 and over. Please note the precautions for use listed at the whirlpool area, or refer to our Aquatics Rules & Policies page.

Our water is kept clean and safe using an innovative mixed-oxidant disinfectant system. Our water will feel gentler on your skin. Make sure your whole family practices water safety. We have lessons for 6 month olds through adults — all our swim instruction is American Red Cross certified.

Testimonials

What Our Members Say

“I want to give a shout out to coach Gina. She was so lovely the entire session – and in a shortened time frame helped Cameron fall in love with the water. We had done “lessons” at the town pool in Ossining for over a year and Cameron generally disliked it. Sure, the Club Fit pool is heated but that’s only part of it. The structure to Gina’s lessons, combined with the songs, fun, warmth and support she radiated, created a wonderful experience. Cameron went from hating going under the water to making his toys go under when we play in the bath. When we bring up swimming with him now, he says “Cammy go under”. In our most recent lesson, he went underwater 15 times which is quite a difference from the one tear-filled attempt we would make in the other class. Cameron looks forward to seeing “Miss Gina” every morning. Gina did a wonder for both our sons in just a few weeks and, I believe, changed the trajectory of their relationship with the water. She is a fantastic instructor and person!”

“Great gym. Professional staff. Sauna. Pool. Steam room. Jacuzzi. Basketball courts. Tennis. Racquetball, and more. I’ve been going to Club Fit since 2012. The other gym members are fantastic as well and I have built many friendships during my time here. Would certainly recommend this gym to friends and family.”

“Club Fit is basically my second home. I love everything about it! The classes and instructors are great. The instructors always take the time to tend to the need of the individual. The club is clean, the staff is friendly and terrific facilities…”

“Best fitness facility I’ve been to. Squeaky clean, spacious and a lot of equipments/machines to choose from….I enjoy working out at Club Fit!”

“The ultimate in quality, cleanliness, and the varied offerings for a workout. I have never been in gym that can compare with what Club Fit offers.”
