Sonoma Fit Pool Club – Northern California

The Sonoma Fit Pool Club is one of the most unique clubs in Northern California. And it’s not just because of the fact that it’s located in Sonoma, which is a beautiful part of California, known for great wines and gorgeous scenery. And it’s not just because they have a great spa, which is located right near the pool. It’s because there are so many different areas to explore.

The club has a number of different pools, each with a very different feel and purpose. There are also saunas, steam rooms, and private cabanas that you can use for relaxing or even for getting pampered with a treatment from the on-site spa. Here’s everything you need to know about visiting the Sonoma Fit Pool Club—so you can plan your trip as soon as possible.

The Sonoma Fit Pool Club was originally founded in the 1980s. Its first location was in Santa Rosa, and it began as a swim club for women only. The club did so well that it began expanding within a few years. By 1992, the club had opened a second location in San Ramon, and by 1999, it had expanded to its third location in Danville.

That same year, the club was bought by its current owners, Herb Margolis and Craig Margolis. They also bought their fourth location in Pinole, California that year. The Margolis brothers have since expanded the number of locations to six throughout Northern California.

The Danville location is particularly unique—it’s an old farmhouse that dates back to 1867. It’s been completely restored and preserved over the years and now houses a luxury swim club with a gorgeous pool area surrounded by lush greenery just steps from downtown Danville.

The swimming areas at Sonoma Fit consist of a jacuzzi, a large lap pool, and an indoor pool that is heated to a comfortable temperature. There is a diverse selection of courses and programs available, including water aerobics, arthritis relief, lap swimming, water yoga, personal training, leisure swimming, masters swimming, and teaching adults different swimming strokes.

There are three swimming pools at the club—and each one has a different feel. The largest pool is called the lap pool, and it’s where you’ll find the water features. This includes a waterfall—which is great for floating on—as well as a number of jacuzzis.

You can also visit the infinity edge pool, where there’s no wall at all, just water falling into more water. This is a beautiful place to visit in the evening when you can enjoy the sunset over the vineyards in Sonoma.

The third swimming pool is called the fitness pool and it’s located right next to the fitness center where you can work out with weights or machines or do your own workout without having to wait for a machine. This is a small, intimate pool that’s great for relaxing or meditating.

All of the pools are fed by naturally occurring hot springs. The outdoor Olympic pool has a temperature that is kept at an average of 85 degrees Fahrenheit, nine lanes for swimming laps, and a course that is measured in both yards and meters. The depth of the indoor pool, which is heated to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, ranges from 4.5 to 6.5 feet.

The depth of the heated outdoor jacuzzi ranges from 3.5 to 5 feet, and the water temperature is set at 102 degrees Fahrenheit. The height of the water jets in the jacuzzi can be adjusted to the user’s preference.

Exploring the Spa

When it comes to exploring the spa at the Sonoma Fit Pool Club, you have a number of different options. You can book a spa treatment, such as a massage or facial, or you can just go on your own to use any of the facilities. Some of the spa services that are available include massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, waxing, and body wraps.

The spa is located right near one of the club’s three pools. This means that if you want to enjoy a treatment while overlooking the pool, you can. It also means that you don’t have to leave your treatments behind if you want to enjoy time by the pool—you can get an aromatherapy massage right in your swimsuit in one of the cabanas.

If you’re not interested in using any of the spa services while at the club, don’t worry—there are still plenty of things to explore. The club also has three beautiful pools and a large hot tub that overlooks some beautiful scenery—the hills of Sonoma.

Exploring the Restaurant and Bar

The Sonoma Fit Pool Club also has a great restaurant and bar. The restaurant offers a menu of light lunch and dinner options, as well as seasonal specials, including many dishes that use ingredients from local farmers. There are also craft cocktails and a wine list that features some local vintages.

The bar offers a number of different drinks, including craft cocktails, plus beer and wine. You can also order from the restaurant menu from the bar. The bar is also a great place to enjoy an afternoon snack or get something to take out to the pool area.

The club is open to members and nonmembers alike, so if you want to visit the pool and other facilities without joining, you can do so by paying a day use fee. The cost of visiting depends on when you visit; it’s $100 during the off-season (September through May) and $125 during peak season (June through August).

Admission, Hours, and Parking

The Sonoma Fit Pool Club is open daily, though they do have different hours for the pool and spa. The pool is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., on weekends and holidays. The spa is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., on weekends and holidays.

The admission fee at the Sonoma Fit Pool Club is $55 per adult and $35 per child, plus tax, though you can save some money by booking a spa treatment while you’re there—that will get you in for free with your treatment appointment (or with your guest pass if you’re just visiting for the day).

Parking can be tricky at the Sonoma Fit Pool Club, since it’s located in downtown Sonoma along Washington Street (there’s also a small lot for club members). However, there are almost 300 parking spaces along Washington Street that are available for public parking during non-peak hours (metered spots are free after 6:00 p.m.).

Planning Your Trip

If you’re trying to figure out whether you want to plan a trip to the Sonoma Fit Pool Club, here are some things to consider. First, keep in mind that if you’re traveling here from out of town, it’s probably going to require some extra planning. Even though it’s located in Sonoma, which is a popular destination for tourists, there are not a ton of hotels in the area.

There are a few hotels within walking distance of the club. The Sonoma Hotel & Spa is located right across the street and has an outdoor pool and jacuzzi. There is also the Hampton Inn & Suites just down the road. However, these hotels do not offer complimentary breakfast like some hotels do. So if you want that amenity, you’ll need to plan accordingly.

Also, keep in mind that this club is open to guests who are staying at the hotel on a seasonal basis only—so if you want to visit when it’s not open season, you won’t be able to come during those times.

Bottom line

The Sonoma Fit Pool Club is an amazing place to experience the beauty of Northern California. With its incredible facilities and friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder that this spot has become one of the most popular destinations in Northern California. So, if you’re looking for a great place to explore and enjoy some of the best that this region has to offer, then you need look no further than the Sonoma Fit Pool Club for outdoor fun!
