WHAT SVAC MEMBERS ARE SAYING
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They even remember your name. The instructors are also great. I couldn’t be happier with the classes that I have taken. i.e. move it low and seniors’ yoga. The Club is very clean and bright. I love the fact that there is a lovely lounge to sit in to enjoy a complimentary tea or a coffee with a friend after your workout. I would recommend this Club to anyone thinking of joining a gym.
“The only gym I’ve ever been to that provides a sense of community is SVAC. The support I’ve received from staff and fellow members over the last two years has been a huge part of my fitness journey.”
“Pleasant staff who are so helpful. Love the variety of classes and you have marvelous instructors. Club has a really good energy and vibe.”
