Online Fitness Schedule

Schedules are also available at the Front Desk or in the Fitness area.  If you aren't sure what classes are best for you, please call (434) 972-2235. 

If you are attending a group exercise class for the first time, please notify the instructor.  He/she will help guide you through your first class so that you feel comfortable and are able to gain the most benefit. Please be sure to sign the attendance sheet posted on the clipboard located in each exercise studio every time you participate in a class. For your safety and the consideration of others, please arrive for class on-time. 

Pilates one-on-one sessions are required before attending our group classes. Please contact one of the fitness staff for more information.

Personal Training

Personal training is available to guests of all fitness levels and our dedicated professionals are here to provide tailored expertise in order to help you reach your goals.

The cost of personal training is dependent upon the duration of the session and the number of people training at one time. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact the Fitness Office at (434) 972-2235.

We implement a 24-hour cancellation policy for all personal training sessions, pilates private sessions and pilates reformer classes.


The Boar's Head Sports Club offers Stott Pilates mat and reformer classes. One-on-one sessions, 3-4 person group reformer sessions as well as mat classes are currently offered.

Both Mat Pilates and Reformer group classes require a one-on-one session prior to taking class or previous pilates experience. Please contact the fitness department with questions.

Sports Club Gym and Rock Climbing Wall

The gym and rock climbing wall are additional kid-friendly ventures at the Sports Club. For more information about use of the rock climbing wall, call (434) 972-2237. 

The Sports Club Gym includes a full basketball court and ample recreation space for other games and activities. Balls and other games are available.

Teen Fitness

All members ages 13-16 must go through a teen training certification before using the fitness floor. These trainings can be completed by reaching out to the fitness director to schedule an appointment with one of our qualified fitness staff. The goal of the Teen Workout Certification is to get the teen acquainted with the equipment and how to use the space appropriately. Once they complete the training, members aged 13-15 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. On Thursdays we offer a Teen Weight Room Open Gym with our strength and conditioning coach for members ages 13-18. Our fitness coach will be available to assist middle and high school members in getting around the Fitness Center, learning different resistance modes of exercise, and maximizing their workout time. New and experienced youth exercisers can benefit from this time. Open gym means it’s NOT a structured class, so drop-in at any time during the hour to learn something new!
