The Sporting Club and 24-Hour Fitness
Fitness enthusiasts who prefer many exercise options under one roof are in luck in La Jolla. With four excellent local gyms, two in La Jolla Village and two in the UTC area, you won't run out of choices any time soon.
One of La Jolla's most popular gyms is the La Jolla Sports Club in the Village. When you join the La Jolla Sports Club, you have the option of also joining its sister club, The Sporting Club, located on University Center Lane. Many who live in La Jolla and work in the UTC area, or vice versa, find the dual membership convenient. The Sporting Club offers its members many fitness programs and amenities. In addition to personal training, the club offers classes in core conditioning, cardio, strength and agility, spin, yoga, and Pilates. The Sporting Club also includes a junior Olympic swimming pool, which is heated year around. It includes three lap lanes and an area for open swim. You can also sign up for water aerobics, master swim classes or basic swimming lessons. If you are a tennis player, the Sporting Club offers access to courts and lessons. Amenities include locker rooms, sports medicine, child care, a cafe and a spa, where you can relax with massage and facials.
Another popular gym is 24 Hour Fitness, with locations in both La Jolla Village at the corner of Girard and Kline and in the Westfield UTC Shopping Center. Voted "The Best Gym in America" by Fitness magazine readers, the gym offers several membership and payment plans and is open from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. They also offer child care, personal training, nutrition consultation and a wide variety of fitness classes, including aerobic, body pump, boot camp, cardio training, cycling/spin, kick boxing, dance, including Zumba, Pilates, yoga, and special classes for older members. The club also offers one-on-one training for all levels, including the Parisi Speed School training method for athletes. The UTC 24 Hour Fitness was recently moved (near the original) and renovated into a Super-Sport Club. It now includes an indoor lap pool, a sauna, whirlpool and steam room, indoor and outdoor exercise areas and a full-sized basketball court.
