The product of Health & Fitness is very exciting and the industry grows every year by leaps and bounds. Everyone has a favorite Zoo. For some, it's the famous Bronx Zoo in New York or the San Diego Zoo in California; for others, it's a small, nearby municipal Zoo. Regardless, Zoos are special places to which people love to return time and again.

Such is the appeal of the Zoo Health Clubs. Members love to return time and again in order to enjoy the familiarity of their Zoo, with its clean facilities, helpful staff, immaculate equipment, and friendly environment.

Since the early 1970s, Zoo Health Clubs have promoted a carefully balanced atmosphere that is both family-friendly and appealing to everyone interested in fitness. The Zoo Health Club uses only the best equipment manufacturers that produce the top of the line cardio and strength equipment. The strength equipment has full sized custom made zoo logo's that give the exercise floor that extra "bang".

The Zoo is a close-to-home, convenient, family-friendly health club open 24 hours a day 7 days a week providing the member all they need to enjoy and live the fitness lifestyle. Ask about the "Zoo Card" which offers the members both month-to-month and 12 month memberships with full access to all the amenities. Most Zoo locations offer your kids, fun in the onsite "Zoo play area." Many of our locations offer exercise on demand along with special live classes such as yoga, pilates and samba. We are proud to say that the Zoo concept works well for both the franchisee and member alike!
