The Saint Paul Athletic Club's athletic facilities are located on floors three through nine. The facilities include the following:
The SPAC's Executive level members have access to our stunning pool. The original 1917 pool has been painstakingly restored.
The Executive level members also have access to the outdoor pool at the University Club on Summit Avenue, which overlooks the Mississippi River Valley and the Downtown Saint Paul skyline.
The architecture of our cardio room will take your breath away—good thing you'll be fit enough to handle a bit of breathlessness. Get your heart pumping with premium cardio machines in a sunlight-filled room you have to see to believe.
Tall ceilings? Check. Fabulous windows? Check. Spectacular ornamental plaster period details? Check, check, check! In the early days this, fabulous space was used as a lounge and formal dining room.
Children's Summer Programs
Executive Member Equipment Area
Executive Members enjoy exclusive use of a spectacular two story sun-filled equipment room. Located on the eighth floor adjacent to the private executive pool, this room features two private running tracks.
Functional Turf Area
The turf area is an excellent place for functional full body exercises, utilizing medicine balls, kettle bells, battle slam ropes, two multi machines, jump ropes, resistant bands, TRX, swiss ball, bosu ball, gliders, and weighted sleds.
Group Exercise Spaces
Who says you have to plan your own workout? Let the energy of a group fitness class—and the motivation of an expert instructor—take you to the next level. Spin. Zumba. Barbell Strength. Yoga. With a wide variety of classes spanning all levels, your next fitness passion is waiting for you.
Locker rental is not included in the membership rates. Executive members can choose to add a locker rental to their membership for an additional fee. Locker rental includes 24-hour laundry service for athletic apparel. Tall Locker Rental is $35/month plus tax and a Half Locker Rental (Executive Women's only) is $25/month plus tax.
We could have designed standard locker rooms, but when your cardio room boasts fabulous ornamental plaster ceilings and brass chandeliers, you have to uphold a certain standard. That's why our locker rooms are built to the same design standard as the rest of the club, each with private changing rooms and steam and sauna rooms. The Executive locker rooms boast additional special features and services.

More energy. More vitality. Better health. It's all possible with one-on-one guidance from our highly qualified wellness and nutrition experts. Your health is the most important investment you can make, so don't spend another day feeling anything less than your best. The Saint Paul Athletic Club offers amenities devoted to improving your quality of life through nutrition, massage, sports medicine, and classes designed to integrate mind, body, and spirit.

Our Pilates program features our state-of-the-art studio on floor five that is fully equipped with STOTT PILATES equipment.
Running & Walking Tracks
Ice and humidity are local traditions, but Minnesota seasons are no match for our THREE climate-controlled indoor tracks—one for running, one for jogging, and one for walking. The jogging track is located on floor nine and the walking and running tracks are located on the Executive Floor, floor eight.
Small Group Training
Experience strength in numbers with our group training sessions. You'll train alongside other members under the guidance of one of our expert trainers. Small group sizes mean a sharing of cost without losing individualized attention—and that means results.
With members pounding up hills in group spin classes the Saint Paul Athletic Club keeps pace with the top indoor cycling facilities.
Squash, Handball & Racquetball Courts
Our sauna isn't the only place to let off some steam. There is no stress relief quite like a safe, enclosed space with a pair of rackets, a ball, and a friend. The club features both a handball/raquetball court and an international squash court.
Executive level members enjoy access to the outdoor clay tennis court at the University Club.
Weight Room & Strength Training
Lean muscle burns calories all day long—so spend some time in the extensive strength training room complete with ample free weights, top-notch machines, and accessories galore.
Peace, strength and centeredness are all within reach at our dedicated yoga studio, offering classes for all levels. The studio is located on the fourth floor—in the former private women's formal dining room, which is almost certain to be the most beautiful studio you will ever see.
