Celebrate our 25th Year With Us!

Special Events happening across ALL Five (5) Clubs!

The dream was to get the world fit by creating a full service, privately owned health club. It all started in 1992 when HealthSPORT Arcata was born as an expansion from Valley West Fitness Center...

HealthSPORT’s Story

The dream was to get the world fit by making exercise FUN.

It all started in 1992 when HealthSPORT Arcata was born as an expansion from Valley West Fitness Center. We knew we needed to work with the community in order to accomplish our mission of healthy people enjoying their lives.

Thanks to the engagement and support of the community we have grown from one club in Arcata, to Fortuna, Mckinleyville and two clubs in Eureka.  We are continue to improve our facilities through remodeling, upgrading our equipment, and educating our instructors with industry leading trends to keep exercise fun!

One of our employees, Doug Hartley, who has worked here since the Valley West days reminisced, “I remember when I was going to school at Humboldt State, and I believe that plaque is still up in the Forbes complex, and it says ‘without your health, what do you have?’” We can all attest to the truth of this statement. HealthSPORT wants to provide every person in Humboldt the opportunity to improve their health and quality of life. It’s a place where they can take care of themselves and take care of each other. We want to thank our members for being our inspiration over the past 25 years and allowing us to continue to grow and thrive in this ever-changing industry.

Fifty years ago I started running. Alas my knees now forbid it. So I work
out on the machines. When a dog's hind legs give out, its life is over.
So, treasure your hind legs and keep working out at HealthSPORT! Thank you!

It’s no surprise to me that HealthSPORT’s been here for 25 years. As long as I’ve been aware of fitness, it’s always been HealthSPORT… they’re making training accessible to all people so we can become healthier and stronger.

Kyle VisserMember

I would like to say congratulations. As someone who runs a business, I know how hard it is to keep it in the forefront of what is positive for our community. We’re proud to have HealthSPORT not just in Arcata but also in other areas of Humboldt. Keep up the good work.

Mariellen JurkovichMember

Thank you HealthSPORT for 25 years of being here and expanding. Especially HealthSPORT on the Bay, it’s my favorite place to come, because it’s a really wonderful feel…this is my preference. They’ve grown a lot and they’ve brought to the community the opportunity for people to come in and take care of themselves and learn about themselves. They’re always introducing programs to extend what they know about health and fitness…

Keta PaulsonMember

Happy Anniversary HealthSPORT, thank you for everything that you’ve given to me.

Kirsten RameyMember

I love By the Bay for the people. Everyday I see the same faces and it is so inspiring to see...It makes me want to continue to come back. I want to inspire them because they inspire me.

One of my favorite community-building experiences at HealthSPORT while working out over the past years: photographing a group of over-60 individuals working out and then hanging a show of their portraits in the hallway in Arcata in 2014.

Mark LarsonMember

I’ve been teaching for over 20 years at HealthSPORT and it’s probably the best job in the world. You see people that you had 25 year olds in your class and now they’re 50 – what a beautiful thing that they are still being active, still being healthy in the community. I think what HealthSPORT means to the community is, it’s a place for people to take care of themselves and take care of each other in kind of a segue…it really has been an amazing place to watch people grow.
