I would highly recommend AVAC. The staff is friendly and helpful. I think the biggest perk is that this gym is very family oriented. The Absolutfit classes are high energy and the Trainers are educated. I also love the pilates classes. All of the friendly members make for a nice environment. Also, the childcare and the staff are amazing. My kids always leave happy. Thanks, AVAC!

Its more than just a "gym" – Almaden Valley Athletic Club (AVAC) is more than just a gym but place to relax and maybe meet new friends. With its gym, pool and tennis court members have a verity of activities to participate in or they could relax in the locker room which includes a hot tube and steam room. The staff is very professional and are very helpful with what ever you need. Overall I'll pick a local gym like AVAC over some MacDonald-gym (like 24 Hour Fitness) anytime.

I love Almaden Valley Athletic Club – I love having a local gym to go to. The staff is way more accomodating and friendly than at some big cheap chain. The equipment is great.

Almaden Valley Athletic Club and Swim School is Wonderful AVAC Swim School is the best! My five children all have learned too swim there; Not only is the facility wonderful, but the instructors are sensitive, love children, and very attentive. My children over 10 years, have taken hundreds of lessons at AVAC! I recommend AVAC SWIM SCHOOL highly! to the person who bad mouthed the program at AVAc, you must just be a jealous competitor, as nothing you say is truthful; I in 10 years have ever experienced a lesson that was not too perfection!

My 3 year old is now TERRIFIED of the pool. Thanks AVAC – My little girl who is only 3 is now terrified of the pool. She used to love swimming with mommy and daddy and after her first and last lesson at AVAC she shakes and cries if we want her to get onto the top step of the pool. the instructor ignored her and just tossed her into the water when we told them she had not yet put her head under water and then when she freaked out they just left her on the step and IGNORED HER! They didn't listen to any of our requests to not have toys (she get's too attached to things). It was a nightmare. Do NOT take your kids there unless you go watch a class with the instructor that will be teaching your child first. Even after make sure they don't sub out the teacher (which happened to us). AVAC gave us our money back but hwo are they going to give us back a little girl who used to love the water?

Good Swim School I like the school but it is EXPENSIVE!! Most teachers are great but I feel students sometimes don't make enough progress based on the teacher, their interaction with teachers etc. The classes have at most 4 kids in same age range & at similar swim level. They are pretty gentle with kids who are scared of water. The front desk staff are friendly and polite. So are the deck supervisors who always updates you on your child's progress.

Parking can be a pain The gym's great. The only grouse I have is that parking can sometimes be a pain. There is swim school next door. Between 3 and 5 the swim school families park their SUVs in the AVAC parking lot even though they have been explicitly given a written policy asking them not to. The AVAC management does little to implement the policy. On a couple of occasions, I have had to drive away without working out because I could find a spot to park.

Fabulous Athletic Club AVAC has something for everyone from small youngsters,to seniors, and every age in between. Group fitness classes, fitness center, stretching area, and a well run pilates program with private instruction, and groupr classes .AVAC has the finest childrens swim lessons, in the valley. It is a first class, and well run club. I RECOMMEND AVAC to anyone, it is fabulous! The club is impecably clean, the staff and management are great, very friendly! The new bath area, and spas are amazing! The new Zumba classes are the most fun I have ever had in a class. The new equipment added in January is wonderful. I can not say enough about the way the owners continually upgrade the facility annually with new equipment, remodels and obviously they re-invest into the club. I hear from other members the owners have done this for over 30 years! The senior wellness program offers many activities to a large senior membership, trips, cooking series, socials, and movies.The tennis at AVAC is also great with 11 lighted courts, and a low member to court ratio; many USTA teams, a very active program.
