The more, the merrier, the stronger
The Fitness Center offers group exercise classes designed to suit different levels of fitness. We constantly update the group fitness class schedule/format in order to keep classes relevant and effective. Instructors are able to provide personalized attention because classes are intentionally kept small. You get a workout that meets you where you are and pushes you toward your goals.
We offer everything from yoga, Pilates and Zumba dance year-round to aqua moves classes during the spring and summer. Set your own pace with cycling classes, and get a great resistance training workout with body sculpt and Zumba toning. Group fitness class schedules are posted and available for pickup at the Fitness Center, distributed in our membership e-newsletters, and provided in our guest rooms for the convenience of our guests.

Meet Steve Thompson
A lover of the outdoors, and a former professional Motocross racer whose injuries eventually forced him out of the sport, it was his entrepreneur spirit and passion for fitness that led him to open a retail nutrition store and start his career as a holistic human performance coach. He is well known throughout Colorado Springs, and until recently owned and operated his own gym.
His approach is to live a life where physical and mental wellbeing are the prime focus, for he believes that it is not only possible for everybody to look great, but also feel amazing and perform at their personal best. Understanding that everyone has a different set of goals, Steve does not take the one size fits all approach to coaching, and over the past two decades his personalized and balanced approach to fitness has led many people to dramatic and sustainable results. He has been fortunate enough to coach athletes who have gone on to score game winning goals in NCAA national championship games, motor sport athletes who have placed in the top twenty at major motorsport events, women who have been featured in major swimwear catalogs, and individuals who have won state titles and pro cards within the bodybuilding /physique and fitness competition circuit.
A respected fitness coach/consultant, gym owner, public speaker and life coach for the past twenty years he is driven by ethics, morals and personal experience. He is always looking to learn, interact, adapt and progress in his own life. His vision for the future is to focus all his energy and expertise on coaching people to a life of daily harmony; he strives to make a positive, profound and lasting impact on the lives of others.
