"After years of not putting my health and wellness first, I was feeling the need to make some changes. CVAC was a huge stepping stone in the right direction and the hot yoga classes were like going to church, leaving me with a mind, body, and soul workout. Marisa and Edy are not only incredible teachers but healers. I have lost 50 pounds (and counting) and feel the best I have felt in years. I still volunteer and, of course, put my family first, but I make sure I get my time in at CVAC." Ola R.

“I love CVAC. The pool area is so nice, the hot tubs are just perfect. So many classes to choose from. Shout out to Stephanie, my favorite instructor.:) The facility is clean and very welcoming.

The machines are fairly new and it’s a great place . I just wish I had more free time to spend there. It’s always a pleasure seeing Ron's smiling face when I walk in.”

“I've been a member since I moved to area with my family 6 years ago….joining a nice family club was top on our list after finding a home. We love the community feel and the all-inclusive feel of our visits. Routinely, we use not only the fitness facilities, but also the pool, Kids Klub, Café and occasionally we get to enjoy Refuge and even get a haircut! Our favorite part of our CVAC experience is truly meeting all the wonderful employees and members over the past 6 years!" Jessie L.
“CVAC is a heavenly gym!! Best investment we have made this year is our CVAC membership!!

We love the staff that treat us like family & the customer service!! A+++” Jessica M.
“I'm here every day (at least once) and I couldn't ask for a better club. Beautiful gym, pool, locker rooms, and a lovely staff.” Annabelle S.

“I have been a member for two years and LOVE this club! My tennis instructor Tisha is such a fabulous person and teacher. The club has finished their Pilates studio and it is amazing. All of the Pilates teachers are great but Kelly is amazing! She is ballet trained and is a brilliant teacher as well as being a wonderful person. I have not come across one staff member at CVAC that hasn't been helpful and pleasant. The club is beautiful, maintained impeccably, up to date equipment, fabulous pool, yummy cafe, and plenty of group classes at all hours to choose from......also it is located in such a gorgeous location. I will be a lifetime member, what a fabulous club :)”

“Great family friendly club, very large, well-equipped gym area with a ton of class offerings, top notch tennis instruction with many courts. My kids loved the pool area - couldn't get enough. “I also think Refuge is amazing and like nothing else in the area - definitely something to check out - do the cold plunge pools for over one minute -- if you dare!” Ann B.
"Not only do I train for Triathlons at CVAC, but my favorite part of being a CVAC member is the other members. It’s amazing how kind and approachable everyone is." Chris C, Owner of The Treadmill
"Looking for a place to workout in Carmel Valley a year and a half ago, my girlfriend, Suzi, and I found much more-- a unique,friendly and vibrant community, tucked away behind Quail Lodge Golf Club. I’m a very social animal so CVAC is the perfect place for me to be. I play 2-3 sets of tennis with the “Early Birds” at 8:15 AM, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, “rain or shine.”I’m so glad Suzi and I wandered into CVAC a year and a half ago. It’s a community that has become a very important part of my life. Bob O.
