The club will open its doors free to the public the week of May 12-18; guests will be given free access to the club’s state-of-the-art exercise equipment and an array of exercise classes. Visitors who would like to join Bainbridge Athletic Club during Get Active America! week will benefit from Bainbridge Athletic Club’s Summer for Free promotion, the Club’s most robust promotion of the year.
