Healthy for the New Year – Homes Near the Wellness & Aquatic Center

It’s that time of year, again! Resolution Time.

The most common new year’s resolution across America is, “I will get healthier this year.” Here in Cullman we’re no exception.


How fortunate we are, then, to have the beautiful Cullman Wellness and Aquatic Center right here in town! This enviable community gym and pool is one of the nicest in North Alabama.

Not Just a Gym

Cullman Wellness and Aquatic Center

This state-of-the-art facility has several spacious and bright multi-purpose workout rooms, dance studios and exercise spaces. There’s a full lineup of classes to appeal to every type of exerciser: spinning, core strength, weight training, yoga and pilates, kickboxing, dance-inspired, high- and low-impact, and more. There’s something for every age and ability level, from kids to seniors (there are even classes specifically aimed at physical rehabilitation for stroke or arthritis sufferers). The enthusiastic and well-trained staff is always eager to help get patrons on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

Not into a group class? The well-equipped weight room is ideal for private strength-training or working with a personal trainer (there are several on staff). The top-of-the-line basketball and volleyball courts are perfect for a heart-healthy pickup or league game. Or grab a friend and take a walk around the indoor track –get your muscles warm and catch up with one another at the same time!

You’ll find a year-round indoor competition-sized pool (perfect for laps, swim lessons, kayaking clinics, or water aerobics classes), a family splash pool, and a hot tub for relaxing those well-worked muscles. Outdoors, the seasonal water park boasts an 8-lane, diving depth pool and an exciting recreational pool, complete with waterslides, a splash station and a lazy river. There’s plenty of deckside seating, too, so it’s a great place to spend a hot summer afternoon.

The CWAC is a surprisingly good spot to meet new people, too. Find like-minded “gym buddies”, or meet up with other families for a splashy playdate. Join a class and learn some new ways to keep yourself fit. Take advantage of the regular community social events, like nighttime swims and summertime movies.

New Year, New You!

They say the hardest part about joining a gym is just getting there. Here in Cullman, it’s easy to get past that hurdle! The CWAC is such a welcoming space: centrally-located, well-designed, and nicely maintained. You’ll find you actually want to spend time there!

Make a commitment to get yourself to the Wellness Center this year. Exercise is good for your body, and socializing is good for the brain (and the soul!).
