The Club encourages a healthy body to accompany a sound, active mind. Whatever a member's reason for seeking better fitness - a team tryout at school or a planned weight loss - we have facilities, equipment and trainers that can put both youth and adults on their way to improved health and higher self-esteem. For more information on youth fitness and adult memberships please call Mike Coelho, Director of Teen Programs, at 401-722-8840 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The wellness center occupies 1,600 square feet of the 5,000 square-foot CLUB, a dedicated space for our teen members. The center is adjacent to a teen games room as well as a study room and the technology room. A snack bar and televisions add to the members' sense of relaxation when not engaged in a physical activity.
The wellness center offers many exercise options including elliptical trainers, stationary bicycles, treadmills, free weights, and additional exercise machines. There is floor space reserved for a variety of group activities.
Renovations to the center, funded by the Champlin Foundations, are a result of strategic planning by our administration to maximize the Club's resources for its youth members while better managing costs. The centralization of the teen programs at the Elson Clubhouse creates several benefits for the Club and its members, while firmly establishing the branch as the hub of activities.
We house a full-size gymnasium with basketball courts and 30-foot climbing wall. Adjacent to the gym is the Club's four-lane swimming pool. We have outdoor recreational fields suitable for most team sports -- baseball, softball, football or soccer. We also have a low-ropes challenge course. Street hockey and tennis and basketball courts fill out the outdoor activities at the Elson Clubhouse campus.
The Wellness Center, gymnasium and swimming pool are available to our youth members for the annual membership fee of only $30.
Men and women also have the chance to improve their health and fitness at the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket. The Wellness Center along with the Club's swimming pool and gymnasium, make up the core fitness facilities available to adults,
The Club's staff oversees the wellness center, assists members with equipment use, and structures appropriate exercise regimens.

Various wellness center and aquatics programs are provided to adults for additional costs.

Also, the sport-specific training and nutrition program keys on strengthening the muscles and movements needed in a selected sport, while increasing performances and decreasing injury risk.
In the pool, water aerobics, family open swim and aqua jogging are add-on opportunities that are available to those who choose them. Water aerobics and aqua jogging programs are run at a pace comfortable for all participants and give excellent cardiovascular workouts without physical impact on joints and bones.
