Great Lakes Athletic Club is an excellent option for athletic-minded travelers staying in the Auburn Hills area. Located 5 miles from three of our recommended hotels, this private fitness club allows guests to access the facility for $20/day and $39/week. If you plan on working out more than once, we suggest getting the week pass, especially if you're a swimmer. GLAC has a newly-converted 6-lane 25 yard saltwater lap pool, as well as a similarly-sized outdoor pool when weather permits.
Additional amenities include an indoor track (3 lanes; 1/10 mile per lap), an outdoor track, two racquetball courts, two basketball courts, sauna and steam room, towels, over 100 group fitness classes, machine and free weight equipment, over 100 pieces of cardio equipment, and a circuit training studio. There's also a rock wall with three climbing surfaces and measures over 25 feet high.
If you're hungry post-workout, GLAC has the Vitality Cafe that can top off the fuel tank.
