Core Athletic Club Brings Luxury Fitness, Community, & Wine to the Boerne Gym Scene
When Boerne residents Luke and Millie Reinhart struggled to find a fitness center in town that suited both of their individual needs, they didn’t throw in the towel or head to San Antonio—they created one. And now, Core Athletic Club is set to bring a whole new level of luxury fitness to Boerne, unlike anything we’ve seen before.
What exactly is luxury fitness? Well, think of it as a transformed—and expanded—experience, focused on not only offering a plethora of equipment and classes in a resort-like atmosphere, but also two important things that today’s busy college students, parents, and working professionals increasingly crave: community and convenience.
Communal spaces such as smoothie bars take the gym from being merely an in-and-out pit-stop in your busy day, to a social activity ripe for connecting and—dare I say it—making actual grown-up friends. Additionally, apps and web-based virtual training programs compliment the full-range of in-house classes and equipment; a game-changer for tech-savvy patrons who often find themselves away on business, working non-traditional hours, or living at the mercy of tiny toddler nap times.
So, what does luxury fitness look like at Core, exactly? For starters, FOURTEEN THOUSAND square-feet of space, immaculately and elegantly designed for the whole family, from infant to adult.
The luxury treatment at Core begins with spacious, fully-stocked locker rooms with private showers, beautiful steam rooms, and towel service—no need to bring your own hair dryer, curling iron, or even basic necessities such as shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, soap, or razors…they’re all provided.
On the ground floor, the free weights and strength training area is spacious and relevant to today’s personal and group functional training requirements.
Upstairs, you’ll find state-of-the-art cardio equipment boasting sixteen-inch touchscreen displays with private television and WiFi.
Two group fitness studios are located on the upper level as well, with spin, yoga, barre, and Pilates classes led by the staff of Boerne’s very own B Well Health & Fitness, which has now become part of the Core Athletic Club family. Dance and interval training classes are offered throughout the day as well, and virtual fitness classes are always available on demand.
Safe and quality child care is a major focus for this family-owned business; even young infants are welcome and older kiddos will enjoy the game room and lounge area with ping pong, TV, video games, arcade games, and more.
And at the heart of it all, is Core’s lounge area and full-size beer, wine, and smoothie bar, which Millie says is about more than just refreshments.
“Boerne is such a unique community. It is important to us to be a part of the community that we love so much, and we are excited to share our passion for fun and fitness in the area we call home. The bar is a perfect place to gather and spend time with one another—and the coffee is always free.”
This community focus is, naturally, one of the highlights I find most exciting about Core, as is the fact that it’s locally and family-owned and operated. And in true neighborly style, Millie and Luke are inviting the entire Boerne community out for one great block party of a Grand Opening celebration this Sunday from 12-6pm.
“Our event will have inflatables for kids, a food truck, beer, wine, live music and so much more. Everyone will be able to tour the gym, sample live group classes, meet with personal trainers/instructors and sign up at a discounted rate. This will be a wonderful family event…and hopefully, at the end of the day, Boerne will see that this is a modern, family-run gym for families…no corporate strings attached.”
Find all the Grand Opening details HERE and even more information on the Core Athletic Club website, Facebook, and Instagram. Then, take the whole family to Core this Sunday to explore the facility on your own…and have a great time too!
