Wayside Performance Center

Wayside Athletic Club offers a fresh NEW clean and spacious Performance Center. From individual athletes to team sports; enhanced ability and performance are the goals. The Wayside Performance Center has offers some of the areas best trainers and coaches that have extensive knowledge in personal training and small group training.  Our trainers test, assess, custom design and then implement training programs specific to each athlete’s current sport, current level of development and identified objectives.

One on One Training

Personal training within the Wayside Performance Center includes an individualized training program catered to a clients’ goals and capabilities. Workouts are adjusted and modified on the go based on physical progress and coach’s observation. There is no doubt personal training is the best and fastest way to reach results.

Small Group Training

Small Group Training (SGT) classes are led by nationally certified trainers and focus on specialized formats such as strength training, endurance, or core. SGT classes are intentionally small – usually no more than 6 participants, which enables the trainer to give individualized attention, encourage progression and skill development and provide a safe and clean environment.

Whether you are looking for a more individualized class or just enjoy a little competition, small group training is becoming more and more popular and here are few reasons why:

1. Motivation
Having someone exercising right beside you may push you a little harder than you might do on your own.

2. Variety of exercises/Results
By working with a certified trainer your workouts will change/evolve as you progress, preventing hitting a plateau and boredom.

3. Camaraderie/Support
Let’s face it, workouts love company. Sharing the workout enhances the experience for participants. Both the trainer and other participants are there to help you get through the challenges of the workout.

4. Greater Focus
There’s no time to let your mind wander with a trainer keeping tight programming and watching your every move.


In an effort to keep our staff, members, and guests safe, we are still taking precautions at the club to help stop the potential spread of COVID-19.  As with all of our group exercise classes, participation is limited in size. If you are fully vaccinated then masks are optional in the club.  If you are not fully vaccinated masks are required to be worn in the club and during class. Participants are asked to wipe down the equipment with disinfected wipes that are used. Because of these precautions, we have had zero Covid-19 cases at the club
