Fitness Programs

The Tallmadge Recreation Center offers a variety of fitness programs. From those just starting out to those looking for a new challenge, we have something for everyone.

July Fitness Schedule Changes

Major Updates:

  • We will only be refinishing our basketball courts this summer. The hardwood floors in the aerobics rooms will NOT be refinished at this time. This means we will still be able to host aerobics classes at the Rec Center, but class days/times may change.
  • Basketball courts 1, 2 and 3 will be closed to the public starting Sunday, June 23 through the completion of the project. This is earlier than previously stated because we need to install dust control barriers around the courts being resurfaced.

PROJECT UPDATE: To help prevent the building from being covered in a layer of dust we have hired a company to place a dust control barrier around the perimeter of the hardwood basketball courts. Dust control barriers will be installed around the courts for the duration of the project. This means all four basketball courts will closed to the public on SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 2019 and will remain closed to the public until the completion of the project. 

The court sanding and refinishing will begin on MONDAY, JULY 1, 2019. The sanding, painting of lines and applying several coats of polyurethane finish to the hardwood floor surface is scheduled to take roughly 4-6 weeks.

This project is different from the typical rough sanding and one coat finish that we perform every other year during our annual shutdown.

Approximately every ten years it is recommended that the hardwood floors are sanded back down to the wood.


During this temporary closure of the hardwood basketball courts we will have a modified fitness schedule. Below you will find a tentative fitness schedule for the month of July. We have put every effort into making sure we could offer almost all of the normal fitness classes during this time frame. In doing so, we have relocated several classes to other spaces within the Tallmadge Recreation Center. We expect there to be last minute changes as the project progresses. We ask for your patience and understanding as we continue to provide our members/community with the most updated facility in the area.

Please understand that the link to the July schedule is tentative and subject to changes based on the weather conditions and spaces available.

Personal Training

For new members, seasoned athletes and anyone in between, personal training provides the ultimate fitness motivation. Training sessions are tailored to each individual's specific needs, health challenges and fitness goals. Our trainers build custom fitness programs optimizing time and energy and demonstrating proper exercise form and technique.

At the Tallmadge Recreation Center, Personal Training packages may be purchased by single or multiple sessions. Each session begins with a free fitness assessment. Sessions are one hour in length and meet as frequently as necessary based on each client's needs.

Weekly classes will feature a warm up, stretch and exercise segment, 1 mile and 1/2 mile timed run, fun sports and a cool down at the end. Punch passes are available and drop-ins welcome. Ages 5-17 welcome. Home School Gym follows the City of Tallmadge School calendar (September through May). Sessions are held on Thursdays from 12:45 p.m. through 2:30 p.m.
