HealthSPORT was built in 1992 as an expansion from Valley West Fitness Center in Arcata to a full-service, privately owned health club in the middle of Arcata Community Park. Since we opened we have continued our quest to help get the world fit, by recruiting most of the active people in Arcata and surrounding areas, and opening a club in McKinleyville, Fortuna, Eureka by the Bay and our newest location off of Myrtle, in Eureka. We are thankful for the enthusiastic support from the community and look forward to continuing to fulfill our club mission: Satisfied Members!
At HealthSPORT, we know that support is an important part of anyone’s workout routine. Whether you’re working out with a group of supportive people, or you’re working one-on-one with an enthusiastic trainer, getting that extra support strengthens your commitment to fitness. We hire passionate people to work at HealthSPORT, because teaching fitness or leading a class isn’t just about the right technique, it’s also about having the right spirit — and the ability to make fitness contagious and fun.
Who is a HealthSPORT member? Anyone and everyone. We’re all ages and all shapes and sizes, and we’re sure you’ll find your fit here.
