Lakeridge is only a short distance from the freeway, but it feels like it is a Country Club tucked away in the hills. The beautiful Olympic width swimming pool is outside with a canopy of trees surrounding it. The new steam room is wonderful and the jacuzzi and dry sauna are a treat as well. Tennis courts, basketball, weights, cardio and many classes are just a few of the highlights of this family oriented club.Like this review?Yes|Flag Abuse

- General Info:
- Welcome to Lakeridge Athletic Club. Located on six acres and nestled in the hills of El Sobrante, our 22, 000 square foot, country-club-style health and fitness resort is a full-service athletic club equipped to provide something for everyone. Originally opened in the 1960's as Canyon Swim Club, the Club boasted one of the largest pools in the county with six, 25-yard lap lanes, a section equal in size to the lap pool for splashing and relaxing, and a range in depth from 2 feet to 12 feet. When racquetball grew in popularity in the early 70's, the Club responded by expanding the facility and building eight racquetball courts and changing their name to Canyon Swim and Racquet Club. As the community grew and local interests and needs changed, the Club continued to evolve and converted four of the racquetball courts into a fitness center with areas designated for free weights, weight machines, and cardiovascular equipment as well as an upstairs aerobics studio. In the mid 80's, the Club changed its name again to the now familiar Lakeridge Athletic Club and installed four outdoor, lighted tennis courts, an outdoor basketball court, a sauna and Jacuzzi, and a childcare facility to truly become full-service. In October 2001, the Club continued its forward growth with major renovation programs including tennis court resurfacing, locker room upgrades, new wood aerobics floor, racquetball court flooring, new state-of-the-art weight machines and cardiovascular equipment, lobby re-design, pool upgrades, and new sports flooring throughout the fitness rooms just to name a few. With ongoing mid and long-range facility-improvement and upgrade plans, Lakeridge Athletic Club will continue to remain on the cutting edge of fitness. We are your full-service health and fitness resort - a place where you will be proud to bring the whole family and friends.
