“I love Aquacise with Barbara & Tai Chi with Dotty. Both instructors make it fun & easy to keep up with the movements.”
“I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent training I have received from your new Aquatics Director. Deni Gillespie. As a competitive high school and college swimmer and water polo player since 2002, I certainly did not expect the radical improvement I would experience with Deni my stroke mechanics and technique, as I transition from competitive swimming to long-distance swimming for future triathlons. For those that don’t know, Deni begins her swim lessons with a targeted approach that starts with the fundamentals of swimming, such as breathing, arm movements and head position. She then analyzed my stroke at every juncture and recorded videos as I completed my laps. Her explanations that followed were enlightening. Deni realized that while I was very accomplished in certain areas of my swimming, I was still suboptimal in other aspects. My backstroke in particular was suffering and we spend and we spent a couple of sessions working on proper form through the angle and position of my calves, thighs and back. Slowly but surely I started to feel a difference as I moved through the water and I ended up shaving four strokes per lap and over 10 seconds for each 100 meters. We continued with some great tips to improve the stress on my shoulders as I moved along with my long-distance freestyle goals. She shared information she learned as the 2014 American Swim Coaches World Clinic, such as new rules for flip turns as well as new and improved techniques for gliding faster through the water. This is certainly something I would not be able to pick up on my own. Ultimately I am swimming much faster while I expand less energy with a much reduced recovery time. I am able to swim four to six continuous sets of 1000 meters under 18 minutes with a one-minute rest in between. This was a feat I could certainly not accomplish six months ago. Deni’s positive encouragement and constructive criticism have forced me to completely change the way I swim and look forward to continue my sessions with her this year.

“Jungle Club is not just a club to become more fit and to meet new people, its a place to learn and become a better person. The atmosphere
“The community is so welcoming at the Jungle Club! I love the friendly, competitive environment. The Jungle Strong competitions are awesome.”
“I am new to town and joining the Jungle Club helped me meet new people.”
“GREAT facility! The staff is remarkable and the environment is energizing. The club has something for everyone.“
“Working in the medical field, I am well aware of the detrimental effects of being overweight to one’s health. My personal goals were to improve my cardiovascular fitness, lose weight, and become stronger. The Jungle Club has been instrumental in helping me reach and maintain my goals. I have also learned that exercise can be fun! I really enjoy the variety of classes that the Jungle Club has to offer. I enjoy cardiovascular workouts. Spin, Body Pump or just me upstairs on the cardio deck as well as strength training! One of the best things about working out at the Jungle Club though is the environment. All of the certified personal trainers and staff are approachable, helpful and more than willing to share their expertise. I never feel intimidated or uncomfortable. The Jungle Club has attracted a wide range of members from all fitness levels and ages. It is inspiring to see people like Florence, commit to fitness and living a healthy lifestyle; it’s one of the reasons I like coming here.”
“I am a foreign exchange student from Norway and after coming to Vero and joining the gym, I have realized how great the Jungle Club really is. I enjoy the variety of equipment and amount of space that they have to offer. And it is all for a good price!”
“Whether you are deciding to get in shape, maintain your current fitness level, or looking to accelerate your exercise goals, why not choose the best gym in town. I love the Jungle Club because they have everything I need to get the most out of my workouts. I like all types of exercise from the awesome obstacle course they have to the fun classes to traditional weightlifting and power lifting equipment. It’s also a huge bonus for my wife and I because they offer child care so there is not an excuse for us not to go to the gym. Keep up the great work JC!”
“The Jungle Club has numerous amenities such as: two racquetball courts, two pools, over sixty group fitness classes a week, a fully-equipped cardio deck to name a few. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. The Jungle Club definitely has something for everyone!”
“Why compromise your workout? Jungle Club has it all, so why wouldn’t you pick diversity?”
“I love the childcare at the Jungle Club. My daughter loves going to Kids Fit. It’s not a chore to get her to come. The classes are so great too, especially the spin classes! The younger staff at the Jungle Club is awesome and so friendly!”
“I am very happy to be a part of the Jungle Club and enjoy it very much. The people are all so friendly.”
Dear Staff & clients at the Jungle Club,
Thank you for once again donating gifts and gift cards to the children and families served by Hibiscus! We absolutely would not be able to provide such a wonderful holiday without your help. May 2015 be filled with lots of happiness for all of you!
“We have been going to the Jungle Club for a year now and we LOVE IT! There are several different exercise rooms and there is such a great variety of equipment. We mostly do weight training, but they also offer all kinds of classes, not to mention 2 pools, tennis courts and much more. The staff members are always there to greet us with a big smile and most of them knows us by name.”

“I like Healthworks Physical Therapy owned by Ron Wilson located inside the Jungle Club. It keeps me walking great at 99 years old. In June I’ll be 100 years old and I’m looking forward to many more years walking.”
“I love the people at the Jungle Club! The Jungle Club has a lot of more equipment than any other gym around. I love the sauna too!
“One thing I really enjoy is the helpful and welcoming trainers and people at the Jungle Club. It is constantly a growing and hard-working family.”
“I love the WELLNESS CENTER! Cory is great and always friendly with a huge smile on her face. I LOVE CORY! She treats me well when I walk in the center and when I leave. The Wellness Center is in the back, but it’s the best!”
“What I love about the Jungle Club is the convenient hours of operation. It works well with my schedule. I can get in and workout and get out. I also love the nice, friendly staff and members here. The service here is great also. In the Wellness Center they hold your keys for you while you work out. GREAT!!”
A prior review said “You PAY for what you get.” I think it’s the other way around – you GET what you pay for! This place is quirky, fun, completely comprehensive, and not a GYM at all, but a wellness center. The staff are very hands-on and invested in your health and fitness. Ask for either Jordan or Dan. They will take better care of you than ANY “chain” gym ever would.
“The Jungle Club is an amazing health and fitness facility that offers everything you need to excel in your fitness journey. The moment you walk in the door you know this is where you belong!!!”
After breaking my clavicle I could not play polo for an extended period, which put me under real financial pressure. Such constraints meant I would have had to regard my fitness at home.
Your generosity enabled me to train in an environment much more conducive to success. Just like horses, professional polo players must be fit and prepared to succeed on the field….especially at my age!
Likewise, fitness and understanding the body seems to be ongoing learning experience and there is no shortage of expert advice at the Jungle Club, it is amazing what one can learn by asking your staff of trainers.
Special kudos to Bob Glickstein, who few may realize, does not teach yoga because he needs to do but chooses to. He studied under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, one of the very most revered Indian Yogis. Like many military commandos and professional athletes I am realizing the amazing benefits to this ancient and proved discipline.
Jungle Club Happy Member!
“Deni as my swimming coach is patient, gentle and kind. I must tell you about me for you to understand what I mean. I am a JahAmerican meaning Jamaican American. Knowing I am from an island surrounded by water and it is said I should know how to swim. No!! I was afraid of swimming and the thinking swimming face down was nerve racking. I never know I could pass that but Deni took me through it with very patient details each changes were explained in fine minute details and then shown to me. Thinking you have no say in how you learn and process things and having control in each step and change was apart of what she taught me. She is very attentive never taking her eyes off you that she can know every change you are going through, to help you with it. To me she has a great gift in understanding what you are going through and can anticipate if I am in trouble.”
“This place is amazing. They have everything!
Price…well, lets just say you PAY for what you get!
Trying to decide if it’s worth the cost difference between here and Planet Fitness….especially when I consider the time I have (when not working) to go work out.
What to do, what to do!?!?!”
“The number of amenities that The Jungle Club Sports Complex has to offer is unbelievable! They definitely have something for everyone. The largest selection of free weights on the Treasure Coast, 60+ group fitness classes per week, tennis and swim programs, two pools, two racquetball courts, and amazing, friendly staff, trainers, sales advisors, and management are just a fraction of what they have to offer. Stop by today!”
“After joining the Jungle Club in May of this year I have lost 10lbs. & 2 inches off my waist without adjusting my diet. Because I have digerative disc disease I have to be careful about lifting so water exercise is a perfect match for me. I am very thankful to the staff at the Jungle Club for my success in getting back into shape. I am 70 years old and in excellent health.”
To All the Staff and Trainers,
I want to share with all of you my heartfelt thanks for all the kindness you have shown to me at the Jungle Club. I am a new resident of Vero Beach and didn’t know a soul except my family when I moved here. I have struggled with many difficult adversities in my life and was worried about my move and making friends in a new town. All of you made me feel so welcome. I especially want to give a special thanks to those special individuals (you know who you are) who have worked so hard with me-both on an individual basis and in class- and given so genuinely of their time. When I first started at the Jungle Club, I was struggling with my weight and was terribly out of shape; I hadn’t seen the inside of the gym in over 20 years. Because of the dedication all the trainers have to their profession, they have inspired me to work hard and achieve goals, both in the gym and out that I never thought I was capable of. I have lost body fat, gained strength and most of all confidence in myself. I can’t begin to say what that means to me. To every trainer and staff member of the Jungle Club, you are remarkable people, and I want to thank you for welcoming me and really making me feel part of the Jungle Club.
“I love the Jungle Club because of the positive energy that surrounds you when you workout here and wonderful staff that greets you when you walk through the doors. I LOVE Zumba!”
Staff at the Jungle Club,
I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your facility this past month. I attended most of the classes at 5:30am and 5:30pm and everyone has been incredible. The staff and teachers are so friendly and helpful and I wish I could pick up this gym and bring it back with me to Illinois. It was the perfect gym and I’ve had the pleasure of working out here. Just wanted you all to know you are appreciated.
“The Jungle Club is a great facility. It’s clean and very well equipped. The friendly staff and members make working out a pleasure. The club has many different classes and activities for everyone. I’ll see you on the racquetball court.”
Here’s why we continue to exercise and try to maintain good fitness! Can YOU climb these stairs at Disney’s Wide World of Sports?
One of our members, Gloria B., had an accident in 2000 which left her in pretty bad shape. Stairs like these were impossible for her to climb and she was restricted to using an elevator or an escalator. On August 13, 2013, Gloria began fitness training with our Personal Trainer Jordan Keene and since then, the quality of her life has increased significantly. Not only can she complete any set of stairs without hesitation, but she also does it completely pain free!
THANK YOU FOR BEING A GREAT INSTRUCTOR AND MOTIVATOR!
Aqua class has given my quality of life a boost! I have lost 32lbs. and feel great! I started with Aqua aerobics and saw results fast. The instructor and class members have a zest for life that keeps me focused on health and energized on all levels. We have fun and the pounds come off while I eat health foods. My energy is back. My joints feel better than they have in years! The resistance in the water helps me burn a lot of calories and build muscle at the same time. I LOVE AQUA CLASS!
“Did you know you don’t have to be a swimmer to enjoy water aerobics 5x’s a week at the Jungle Club? The 3 instructors make it so much fun, and each one has their own style. It is such an enjoyable hour which always goes by a bit too fast. You use your whole body in the class, but don’t feel it with the resistance of the water. I’m hooked.”
“I love the atmosphere , Staff very dedicated to helping you if needed they have such a large variety of equipment and the layout is wonderful you always have room to get around and not feel cramped up.”
“Greatest place! Been going since 3rd grade and wouldn’t have it any other way!”
“This is an awesome gym!”
“Great day at the Club!!! Denise, thank you for a great ab class!! Miss the Jungle Club Family! Thank you for a great day!”
“First day at water aerobics with Barb. She is such a nice lady and so fun! Birthday party after class… Um I think I’m going to like it here.”
“A spook-tacular class!”
“This was such a fun Spin class..”
“The Jungle Club saved my life. I have more energy, and with the chance to join the through the Wellness Center it gave me a chance at doing swimming instead of using medication to heal my health issues. The staff is friendly, welcoming and very inviting. I like coming in knowing that this place has made such a positive impact on my life.”
“Coach Gillespie has been a great instructor. I swam with my high school swim team in the 70s and wanted to update my swimming strokes and improve my efficiency. The sport of swimming has seen huge improvements in the last 30-40 years, and Coach Gillespie has trained with internationally renowned coaches and recently went to Key West to attend leadership talks with Diane Nyad. She has been very encouraging! I have observed her in numerous teaching situations-babies, kids, beginners, triathletes, and direct swimmers, and she is always completely on task, knowledgeable and direct. Whatever your level, stop by the pool and move toward being that swimmer you hope to be! I’ve worked a bit now with personal trainer Oliver, and he’s been super helpful and a real sweetie!
“I told a gentleman who goes to a different club that if he has Silver Sneakers, you can join this club. He came over and he signed up…..and later thanked me! I told him they give you an orientation of how to use the machines and he really loved that. That’s what I like about the Jungle Club!”
This is Geoff Abdoo, you were kind enough to give some pointers at the pool Saturday. The tips you gave me were very helpful and seemed to get right to what I’ve been trying to solve for the last few years!
