At the JCC we define total wellness as a state that combines health and happiness including physical and mental health.

Our Fitness Mission

Conveniently located in New Orleans and Metairie, these spacious, well-maintained facilities offer state-of-the-art equipment, professionally directed classes and a friendly staff that helps members get the most from their workouts. As service providers, the JCC aims to match the diversity of our membership — a group that encompasses marathon runners, fitness newcomers and enthusiasts, youth trainers, recreational swimmers and seniors determined to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
