We are currently accepting new members.

At Goleta Valley Athletic Club (GVAC) our goal is to provide club members with the most spacious and comfortable workout experience possible. We achieve this by operating with a membership model that caps the total number of members we have enrolled at the club. This keeps the club from getting too crowded, meaning you won’t have to worry about waiting for equipment or feeling cramped in your workout space.  First time guests can set up complimentary workout and tour of the health club. (must be 18 or older and local resident).

We create corporate membership programs that are flexible, focused on value, and specific to your employees’ needs. With experience working with both large corporations and small businesses locally for almost 40 years, we can create a cost-effective plan that will maximize your ability to bring the benefits of health and fitness to your employees.
