New Fitness Center serving North Shore is Complete

The design and installation of a new fitness center housed within the North Shore Beach and Yacht Club has been completed, and the public is invited to come see it during a grand opening next month.  Desert Recreation District (DRD) enhanced the Club with a fitness center after talking with the community to hear what the residents would like.

On Tuesday, March 22, 2016, DRD will host a Grand Opening event from noon until 2 p.m. and refreshments will be served.  During this time, residents and guests can tour the facility which has cardio and strength-training circuit machines as well as free weights in the fitness center, and ongoing activities such as Zumba classes and after-school programs are held in other parts of the building.

In addition to regular programming, the facility has a full kitchen and outdoor seating as well as a spacious interior that can be rented for private events.  The North Shore Beach and Yacht Club is located at 99-155 Sea View Drive, in North Shore.
