Dedham Health and Athletic Complex opened its doors in 1978 with a primary focus on racquet sports. Since that time, the facility has constantly expanded in both size and services to better meet the needs of our members. In our 240,000 square foot facility, we offer four core components: Fitness , Medical Services, Family / Children, and outdoors.
Our fitness module is staffed by exercise physiologists with 4 year degrees. The fitness area is designed with the adult population in mind, and includes a 25,000 square foot gym space, as well as over 75 group exercise classes a week distributed between multiple exercise studios. Our medical component offers a wide variety of services from your most basic needs to physical therapy. It also includes our 60/60 program where we teach our philosophy: exercise is medicine!
The family and children component focuses on keeping children entertained, active and fit in the Disney themed Downtown area. Our outdoor component offers multiple summer camps as well as the extremely popular Summer Club!
