The Levite Jewish Community Center’s large facility encompasses plenty of options for members to work out.
Fitness Floor and Indoor Track
Our fitness floor caters to every fitness level and includes machines, free weights, rowers, stairmills, TRX straps, treadmills, and more. Many of our pieces are smart compatible so you can easily link up your fitness tracker or smart watch or even hop on your Netflix or Hulu account to watch your favorite show. You can also find workouts throughout our fitness floor with suggested routines for building everything from strength to cardio endurance.
Our TRX Studio is a private area available for more personal workout space for our J-Elite members. This room includes weights, straps, kettlebells, and more.
The LJCC’s indoor walking track is fantastic for walkers and runners needing a more consistent workout environment than being outdoors. For anyone looking to change things up a bit, the track area also includes printed handouts that guide you through a 20-minute routine. From sprinting to lunging, you’ll receive a full-body workout in no time.
Once you join the LJCC, you won’t just have access to the equipment, you’ll also have access to our helpful community. There will be a staff member on-call on the fitness floor at all times to help show you specific moves, instruct you on equipment use, or answer any questions. If competition is what motivates you, we recommend taking part in our Levite Lochem Challenge, which is a leaderboard of members competing over pull-ups, sit-ups, and planks.
The LJCC has a variety of group classes that can help you achieve your fitness goals. Our main Group Fitness Studio is 2500 square feet and home to 91 group fitness classes per week, with varying times to fit your schedule. Our Mind and Body Studio is tailored for our Yoga and meditation classes with bamboo floors and skylights. You’ll also work up a sweat in our Raised Barre and Core Suspend classes which promote low-impact and fat-burning routines. If biking is more your thing, our Cycling Studio includes 33 bikes for classes like Les Mills RPM, Les Mills SPRINT and Freestyle Cycle.
Biking and Fitness Trail
Nestled into the hillside behind the Levite Jewish Community Center is the Linda & Jack McDuffee Mountain Biking & Fitness Trail. It was designed by Linda and Jack McDuffee, both avid bikers, and built by the couple and a group of dedicated volunteers. The 5 mile trail runs across the mountain, providing an excellent exercise opportunity in a beautiful natural setting. A map of the trail, which is only open to LJCC members, is available here.
We have several pools available to members of the LJCC. Our indoor pool provides lap lanes that are open for exercising twice a day, along with the pool being used for swim lessons, water aerobics, and Master Swimming.
The outdoor pool is available to our J-Elite members and holds a whopping 288,000 gallons of water. It is open from the end of May to September every year. It’s utilized by visitors looking for a casual swim, the dive team, swim lessons, summer camps, and the JCC Aquatics Club.
Next to the outdoor pool is the baby pool. Fully enclosed for safety, it’s a shallow area with seating around for parents to keep a watchful eye upon children.
