Recently the MGC updated all the cardio equipment to Life Fitness equipment. New treadmills, cross trainers, and bikes now work with smart phones, fitness programs, wireless access and have the ability to take you on courses around the world. Members are raving about the new equipment and many new workouts and options available to them.

Pickleball has been rapidly growing all over the state, at the MGC you will find four indoor courts, with various days and times for drop in play. If you are new to the game we have learning opportunities twice a month; the 1st Saturday of the month from 11am-12pm, and the third Tuesday of the month from 6pm-7pm.

The MGC has always had fitness classes such as Yoga, Pilates, Bootcamps, Tai Chi, Zumba and Silver Sneakers but this year we’ve added Zumba for kids, a Senior Bootcamp and Tabata classes. The weekly fitness schedule offers 43 different opportunities to participate in an instructor lead class.
