Upstairs you'll find a well-equipped gym which is free to our members. We have a treadmill, a rowing machine, a functional cable trainer, a utility bench with squat rack, a lat machine (for working your back), a hack squat machine for developing your legs, a pilates machine (full body fitness machine), step aerobic boxes, a stationary bike, stability balls, jump ropes, bands, kettle bells, battle ropes, yoga mats, all manner of weights, a full rack of dumb bells (from 5lbs to 50lbs), a kick boxing dummy, a stair stepper, stability balls, medicine balls and a wonderful trainer, called Jay Thorn. He tells us he "got out of business eight years ago to do something useful" -- namely train people to live longer, healthier, happier lives. He specializes in people over 50. He recommends two or three training sessions a week. But he has students who do once a week "with homework." Jay is talented. He ran the Boston Marathon one year in 2 hours 58 minutes. He has completed many personal training courses. He's the real McCoy. Better yet, he's popular with our members.

Jay Thorn's email is JayThorn@Fairpoint.net. His phone number is 518-965-4497.

NEW DISCOUNT ON CONTRACTS: This season we are offering 20% discount on contract times, that is 10% more than at any time in the history of the tennis club. Guarantee court time each week and save money, what could be better? We open Monday September 22 and close Sunday May 24. There are no contracts on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day. The price on the contract reflects that. We are closed on Christmas and New Year's Day, although "special arrangements" can be made.

THE HAR-TRU COURT IS PLAYING VERY WELL. It has taken years. But we'll now pit our "soft" court against any other one anywhere in the world. Our court is world-class. Try it. By the way, Putnam Tennis comes in and resurfaces our Har-Tru court every September.
