Feel Like a Champion, Workout like a Champion

If you’ve been exclusively working out from home, now is the time to level up your workout by becoming a Champions Club member.

There are pros and cons to working out at home and going to the gym. While both provide health benefits, there are many things a gym membership can offer you that working out at home cannot. When that gym membership is a Champions Club membership, the advantages of becoming a member are more than double.

Let’s look at a few benefits of working out at Champions Club.

Motivation
Starting a new exercise regime is easy. Maintaining an exercise regime is another story. When you are at home, it is easy to get distracted and find excuses for pushing off your workout. When you become a Champions Club member, everyone is on your team and cheering you on to keep you motivated. Our beautiful facility and friendly members will motivate you to stick to your goals. You really can’t beat the sense of community you feel when you are a part of Champions Club.

Our world-class facility boasts incredible amenities that are impossible to reproduce at home. There are plenty of options to keep your workout feeling fresh, from our multiple cardio machines, ample floor space, basketball courts, a walking track, Aquatics Center, private studios, group fitness studios, and weight room. We even offer Fitness on Demand classes that you can follow along in one of our private studios. The possibilities to move your body are endless, and you’ll never get bored at Champions Club.

World-Class Staff
Our world-class staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and on your side. Our staff is here to support you during every step of your wellness journey, from the welcoming front desk team, professional personal trainers, to our registered Dietician! We’ll make sure you’re on track to reach your goals and give you the knowledge you need to take your routine to the next level.

Classes
Our fun and interactive group exercise classes are one of the best perks of being a member. Our incredible instructors create the perfect atmosphere to get motivated and sweat with the Champions Club family. From Yoga, Zumba, to Aqua HIIT, there is something for everyone!

You already know what it’s like to work out from home. Now is the time to discover all that Champions Club has to offer. If you already feel like a champion, it’s time to work out like a champion as well.

Our Park and Recreation Story: The Athletics Dream Team

July is National Park and Recreation Month. There are many stories to tell about the professionals that dedicate their career to creating life-long memories for your families.

Today, we are featuring the dream team that oversees Athletics here at the City of Southlake. If you have ever signed up for an Athletics program in Southlake, then you’ve benefitted from the work of Leigh Blake and Chelsea Cherry!

Leigh and Chelsea manage the athletics programs you love, such as BaseballTots, Basketball Skills Academy, and the athletic leagues. They share a passion for sports, bringing our community together, and creating world-class experiences for Southlake’s young athletes.

Athletics is a staple division in many Parks and Recreation departments across the country. Not only does participating in athletics promote physical wellness, but communities that value sports are safer, healthier, and more socially bonded than passive communities. For many children, municipality athletic leagues and camps are the first contact they have with sports. That’s why Leigh and Chelsea take their job so seriously. Let’s get to know them a little better.

My Park and Recreation Story: Leigh Blake, Athletics Supervisor
I’m originally from Tennessee and grew up playing soccer and softball. I won a state championship in soccer and was a state champion bowler in high school. I moved to Texas four years ago to pursue a career in athletics. I have worked in various roles and sports, including USA Baseball, junior golf, campus, and community recreation.

The best part of my job is watching kids have fun and learn life lessons playing sports. One of my favorite memories at work comes from my time in junior golf. We hosted a tournament at TPC Sawgrass, and I selected the hole location for our event on the famous island green there!

My Park and Recreation Story: Chelsea Cherry, Athletics Coordinator
I’m from a small town in East Texas. I moved to DFW to attend Dallas Baptist University, where I graduated with a Master’s in Sports Management. I grew up around sports, specifically football, everything shuts down on Friday nights in a small town for the HS football game, and baseball, (my little sister was a collegiate softball player). My true love of sports came from competitive cheerleading.

I started tumbling classes when I was five years old, but I was a shy kid. I didn’t get the courage to join my gym’s cheer team until I was 15. In those few years that I competed, I got to experience winning multiple state and national championships. I also learned how to be confident, come out of my shell, be a part of a team, deal with wins and losses, and many other critical life skills that come with sports. This is what drew me into a career in athletics!

My favorite part of my job is working with our staff to help them learn skills and build character traits that will carry them far beyond their time with the City. The best memories at work are always on the first game night of each season. All the stress, hard work, time, and effort spent preparing come together to create an environment full of excitement and fun for the kids and families!

Thank you, Leigh and Chelsea, for being a part of our winning Park and Recreation Team!

Just this week, Mayor Huffman proclaimed July as Park and Recreation Month in Southlake. This month highlights the vital and powerful role local park and recreation professionals play in building more vibrant, and more resilient communities across the country.

We strive to be the premier recreation destination for our residents. It’s what keeps us motivated to go to work every day.
