Newtown Athletic Club opened in 1978 as Newtown Raquetball Club, a small 25,000-square-foot racquetball and fitness center. Over the past 10 years and three renovations later, it has expanded into a nationally recognized full-service family athletic club.
The main athletic club features a recent 12,000-square-foot open fitness addition, plus a complete remodel of the salon, spa, children’s area and locker rooms. An outdoor pool complex and a multi-tenant fieldhouse were added in 2013 and more expansions are underway and expected to be completed this summer.
The most recent multi-phase master planning for the 30-year-old club called for a three-year expansion/renovation project that included development of design and construction documentation packages for every component of the facility.
When finished, the facility will include group studios for aerobics, yoga, spinning, barre, Pilates and dance, fitness floors, functional training, aquatics, spa, salon, gymnasium, indoor track, locker rooms, childcare, food service and support facilities.
