    Really friendly place with many options and very good facilities. My trainer Terri is the best person I have met since moving to Montana 2 years ago.

  • Trevor Rehm3/12/2020

    The MAC has a lot to offer in regards to different groups and activity levels. Among weights, cardio equipment, pool, basketball court, racket ball, outdoor tennis, spin room, virtual work out room, functional training area, hot tub, sauna, steam room, and all the different classes there seems to be something for everyone. Certain hours the gym can get somewhat full but the recent additions have helped provide more area for everyone.
