Harbour Island Athletic Club & Spa

900 South Harbour Island Boulevard
Tampa, FL 33602
Area: Downtown/Harbour Island

Fifteen dollars gain you access to the best health club in Tampa. This top-of-the food-chain facility is upscale without being snooty. While this is urban Tampa, it is still the South, so expect laid back staffers and fellow exercisers. The Club's full-service includes an outdoor café that serves yummy meals and a "kid zone" which provides babysitting for $5/hour.

With indoor and outdoor athletic space of 150,000 square feet, traveling athletes will feel like kids in an ice cream shop with so many workout flavors from which to choose. There's a full basketball court, racquetball and squash courts, a cardio and weight area, and a lap pool. The workout equipment and sporting courts are in great shape, like most of us who use it. Leave the racket at home...guests aren't allowed access to the tennis courts.

Despite all this well-deserved praise, one item on our wish list would be more brand variety within each equipment type. For example, Harbour stocks a more than sufficient 21 treadmills, but all are the StarTrac brand, a good manufacturer, but not preferred by everyone.

With respect to the 25-yard, outdoor lap pool, it is a superb swimming venue with floating lane lines and bottom stripes to keep you in a straight line. Three cheers for Harbour!
