Everyone in the community can be inspired to stay fit and healthy every day of the week at Mentor Heisley Racquet & Fitness Club.  Adult fitness classes, massages and private training keep adults active while kids can enjoy year-round soccer, swimming, basketball, tennis classes or private lessons as well as youth sports.

Natalie Tomazic, co-owner of MHRFC said, “Our goal is to help people do more of what makes them happy.  Whether it is participating in team sports and leagues, swimming and aerobics, or promoting overall wellness from our holistic health coach or spa services.  We help individuals and families focus on the keys to healthy living.”

The MHRFC hosts one of the largest indoor soccer programs around.  For children (over five years old), teens and adults, the soccer club hosts nearly 175 teams in leagues, tournaments, and practices.  Indoor soccer runs November 1 thru May 15.  Additional sports like lacrosse, field hockey, flag football, sports camps and clinics are also offered throughout the year on the indoor field.

In addition, the MHRFC pool creates numerous opportunities for swimming, stretching and training. Aqua Zumba and water aerobics are geared at providing high energy, cardio workouts for adults, while kids can learn basic swimming skills in group or private lessons.  The Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program is designed for seniors to safely gain strength and flexibility without putting excess strain on joints and muscles.

Fitness, yoga and aerobics also provide opportunities for overall wellness in half-hour classes.  All classes are designed to get the body moving through weight training, stretching, TRX and cardio.  The Synergy360 is one of the newest pieces of equipment and is designed for up to 10 people to do different exercises at once.

“Our membership adjusts to fit different lifestyle needs.  From annual memberships and corporate memberships to day passes and ‘snow bird’ three-month memberships, we have numerous fitness and sports programs available throughout the year.  Club members can sign up free for many classes and guests can take an aerobics class for $10,” added Tomazic.

Free childcare is included with family memberships (and for a small fee to program participants) for children six months to seven years. Their babysitting center is open seven days a week (daily hours vary).

Kids and families can also host birthday parties, First Communions, bridal and baby showers.  Club staff are available to help plan details for every party including room rental, catering, decorations and party favors.  Ideal for small to midsize parties, kids can enjoy swimming, soccer and other sports.  Every party is unique and planned with as much (or little) help as requested.

For the first time, a bridal show will be hosted at MHRFC on June 4, 2017.  Brides can find gently used wedding dresses, decorations and talk with local vendors about their upcoming nuptials.  Teens may also shop for prom dresses.  Additional details can be found on the MHRFC Facebook event page.
