Back in August, we went to The Treehouse Athletic Club for a sort-of work retreat for some of my husband's coworkers and their families.
This place is unbelievable. It's the kind of facility I'd expect to see in Midtown Manhattan. It might be kind of weird to think of a health club as being fancy, but I do.
While Darin was finishing up a few things at work, I took the kids to the club, and first thing checked them into the age-arranged kids' clubs. The older ones didn't have as much fun as the younger ones, but as a parent, I felt secure in having them at the facility. In the upper-level workout area, I was able to keep an eye on my kids in their play areas via a television monitor, which was great.
The locker room itself was unlike any thing I'd ever seen before. I honestly felt like I was in an upscale hotel in there. Quiet, restful, private. I don't know how I could feel so passionately about and recommend a locker room, but there it is.
Once Darin joined us, we checked the kids out of their play areas and headed over to the rock-climbing wall. We had a climbing wall in my high school, a newer concept in the early '90s. I love climbing.
We played some group games on the basketball court, and enjoyed the racquetball courts (I still don't know how to play) before heading out to the pool(s), from which we ordered our lunch which was delivered to us from the on-site cafe. Nice touch, if I do say so.
If I lived close enough to justify joining this club, you can bet I'd sign up for their triathlon club. How perfect.
So, if you find yourself in the Southern part of the Salt Lake Valley, I recommend looking into the Treehouse Athletic Club. You'll feel like a rock star.
