Fitness Access

Endless Opportunities for you to Reach Your Athletic Potential

We never say ”we’ve thought of everything,” but we will say “we keep thinking of everything.” We’re always looking at how we can make our athletic spaces even better. Five floors are completely dedicated to all of your athletic pursuits. In fact, the WAC is one of the very few city athletic clubs that has an option for men’s- and women’s-only workout areas. We’re always reviewing our classes and equipment and talking to our coaches to make sure you have everything you need to reach your peak. Those resources include a Spa and Wellness Center that boost brain power, ward away injury, and keep you healthy and, of course, spirited.

4th Floor

Find your niche inside our Coed Fitness Center. Our state-of-the-art athletic space offers personal training, fitness assessments, metabolic testing and complimentary orientations. Your workout will feel spacious among 3,600 square feet of cardiovascular, Technogym® and resistance equipment where our treadmills, exercise bikes, stair climbers, rowers, and ellipticals all live. A full array of free weights and selectorized, plate-loaded equipment completes the resistance area. You’ll also find our Spa and Wellness Center located here along with Coed Fitness and our Exercise Studios.

The Exercise Studios

More than 100 Group Classes per week rotate through our seamless studio space. You’ll find all those classes that boost your mood and make your day right here. Stretch and move in Pilates Mat Classes and Yoga, hop on a bike in Group Cycling, or punch and dance in Zumba, Boxing, Bootcamp Fitness and much more.

5th Floor Men’s Fitness

Imagine a vast space filled with a selection of top-of-the-line fitness apparatus, including a full line of Hammer Strength equipment, a spacious free-weight area, 35 cardiovascular machines and plenty of lockers to store your gear. Massage therapy, personal training and tanning are also available.

6th Floor

For years, our Helene Madison Swimming Pool has been the hallmark of the 6th Floor. Members can swim laps, practice their aquatic exercises, swim for fun or take swim lessons—even celebrate a birthday. If it’s athletic wear, gear for court sports or aquatics, you’ll find it in our Club Sport Shop. Hit the ball around with other squash, handball and racquetball enthusiasts. And, we have convenient locker rooms where you can store all your athletic belongings.

7th Floor Women’s Fitness

A light-filled athletic area where a top selection of fitness equipment awaits, including the Hoist Rock-it line of weights and Life Fitness cardiovascular equipment . Relax in the Women’s Lounge area while watching television or using a laptop. All what you’d anticipate is here, from massage and tanning services, to specialized personal training.

The 8th Floor

There’s always action on our 8th Floor. You’ll find additional sport courts, a full-length Gymnasium with a basketball court, a Running Track, Pilates Tower Units and Functional Training Rooms. And when you need a fast break, stop into the Sports Café and pick up a smoothie or other nutritious meal. (Please check the 8th Floor Gym schedule for an outline of all organized activities and open-use times.)


Our base membership offers access to: 25-yard Helene Madison Pool, full-size basketball court, squash, handball, racquetball, and badminton courts, and indoor running track.
