Tennis isn't the only way to get fit at Olde Providence.

Want a great workout among friends? Try one of our regularly scheduled group yoga, Pilates or Cardio classes in our Exercise Studio. If you don't see a group class that's quite what you want, arrange your own. Our professional staff is happy to help. You just have to supply the sweat!

But what if you are more of an "on-your-own" sort of exerciser? Stop by the fitness center and put in some cardio time on our Precor treadmills and stationary bikes, or build muscle with our complete line of weight machines by FreeMotion.

Need a personal trainer? Fitness Director John Moss is one of the best in Charlotte, and will customize a workout just for you. Whether your goal is to lose weight, strengthen your core, or recover from an injury, John will help you get there.

Members enjoy the fitness center weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and weekends 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

  • Personal Services
    • Sometimes all it takes to overcome an obstacle to fitness or meet a health challenge is a little one-on-one time with a pro. Maybe you need a customized regimen to help you prepare for a big tournament, recover from an injury or figure out the best way to get back in shape after a period of not exercising. Or maybe you want the Ahhhh of a post-workout massage to keep you coming back to the gym. Our menu of individual and small-group services is designed to meet those needs and many others.

      Personal Training

      For this service, we pair individual members with fitness professionals to work one-on-one. The trainer designs a safe and effective regimen to help you reach your goals in terms of weight loss, performance enhancement and overall health and wellness.

      Partner Training

      This alternative to one-on-one training offers the benefits of working closely with a trainer or instructor at a fraction of the cost. Some members find partner training to be even more effective than personal training, as partners draw motivation from one another. If this sounds like the right approach for you, a trainer can help you find a buddy. Trainers design workouts specifically for each partnership.

  • Massage Therapy
    • Whether you’re getting a Swedish Massage, a Deep Tissue Massage, or a Sports Massage, we believe that our services come with unique benefits. Our 60, and 90-minute massages may be able to do things like reduce stress, alleviate pain, manage migraines, improve mobility, and increase circulation. Our comfortable room and convenient location will add to your overall sense of well-being.
