Why The Saint James is Perfect for Both Moms and Family Fun!

Getting tired of the same meet-up spots with friends, the usual park you frequent, or your routine hang-out space for your YOU time? I have three words for you: The Saint James. It’s a total game-changer for your recreational time. Okay, so I may be just a bit partial, considering we are members of this fantastic sport and wellness complex. In my defense, it’s hard not to be!

It has been a lifesaver for me to get out of the house and go to The Saint James complex to get my work done or meet up with a friend for lunch and just breathe. Have kids that need to tag along? Still, not a problem! You can enroll your kids in sports lessons, spend some quality time as a family at the water park or visit the kid-approved favorite, Super Awesome and Amazing! You might wonder how you can do all of this at one location. It sounds impossible. I promise you it’s worth a visit. My family enjoys every visit, and no one has ever protested going when it’s brought up. This complex has everything you need to keep your body, mind, and playtime at its all-time peak.

About The Saint James

Co-founders and Co-CEOs, Craig Dixon and Kendrick Ashton wanted to use their extensive knowledge and expertise in fitness and sports to bring something extraordinary and beneficial to the region. They worked together to fit as many possibilities as they could under One roof and opened those doors in 2018. The Saint James has since then been a favorite amongst its community and continues to grow and thrive.

The sports and wellness complex is truly one size fits all because it has something for everyone to engage in and enjoy. The benefits of wellness, ways to engage and participate with others, the ability to focus on your sports interest, and overall enjoyment are never ending when you walk through these doors. Whether you plan to just get out and enjoy some “you” time, meet with friends, or bring the whole family, you will have a fantastic time. With all they offer, you will have to make multiple trips to experience it all.

The Court and Hitting Houses are just around the corner, where basketball, Futsal, volleyball, and baseball takes place. But don’t forget about the ice skating and hockey rink. Additionally, you can get wet and check out the Pool house for swimming and a water park for all ages to enjoy.

Meanwhile, the Performance House is home to dance and gymnastics classes for all ages. I was not kidding about it having everything in this 30,000-square-foot facility of fun. Mainly because I didn’t even mention the Health and Fitness areas yet. Packed with an exclusive health club, personal training, bouldering, rock climbing, and group fitness classes.

Special Amenities

The Saint James is not just a place for hard work, exercise, and fun. But it also holds Vim & Victor, their delicious restaurant where the whole family can eat healthily. But while the kids are playing, mom gets to visit Courted. Not the sports court, but the spa, salon, and Medi Spa! Here you can be pampered and enjoy a moment of peace while the kids learn and grow. However, it does not stop there. Strivers carries all of your athletic apparel and equipment. The Saint James is not just a gym but a community place for exercise, fun, and family.
