    Default Gym and Fitness Classes

    How is the gym and fitness classes at CSA? I've been in a fitness kick lately and I'm excited about the facilities and classes- any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    The gym is decent, haven't taken any classes, but others have said they are nice and provide a good workout. A word of advice, go early to the gym. I mean 6 or 6:30 in the AM. It is an open air gym, which is nice, but it gets HOT early. Even early in the morning you will work up a lot of sweat. Personally, I like that. Others do not like to sweat a lot, my wife is one. But you will sweat, a lot, if you work out at CSA. They also provide towels and a big cooler of cold water is set up in the gym. Nice.

    You will have a variety of classes to choose from. Plus too there will be a visiting pro onsite teaching classes @ 9am and then again in the afternoon around 5 pm. You'll have classes from body conditioning to low-impact, cycle and aqua. They also have a resident pro Donovan if you prefer to do personal training. Facilities are up-to-date and the group exercise room is now air conditioned!

    The fitness center is fantastic!! The weights and equipment are in great shape and the tennis courts rock.

    The fitness classes, IMHO, range from palatable to just plain bad. I have yet to have a "fantastic" class. I don't do aerobics, but the yoga I have taken was either taught by someone who wasn't a yoga instructor (i.e. once a pilates instructor, and once a personal trainer) or it's just glorified stretching. The spin class last time I was there was disjointed, but passable. (and you can make any spin class a good workout if you try.)

    But Donovan is fantastic. (Wonderful personal trainer) and the Tennis Instructors are the best.

    Have a great trip!
