Fitness starts here. Workout with us!

The Duke Health & Fitness Center is not your typical gym. We are a medically-based, community fitness center serving both the public and Duke employees/retirees. We offer the friendly, caring and professional experience of a long-established fitness club with the medical knowledge and expertise that is often hard to find in the fitness setting. Our members and guests enjoy a diverse selection of group exercise classes, cardio and strength equipment, mind/body experiences, a newly renovated facility with an indoor track and saline pool, as well as customized services such as personal training, nutrition and therapeutic massage.  We have the resources and passion to foster positive, lasting changes for adults of all fitness levels and health needs. 

We are located on the beautiful Duke Center for Living campus in Durham, North Carolina, adjacent to Duke University and Duke University Medical Center campuses. The facility recently completed a total renovation of the 30,000 square foot fitness center, while maintaining the large windows and natural views that help provide a relaxing, open atmosphere for exercise and positive changes. In addition to our cardio and strength machines, outdoor track, and private exercise studio, we are one of only a few fitness centers in the Triangle having both an indoor track and indoor saline pool.

For several consecutive years, we have been voted “Best Place to Stay in Shape in Durham” by the local community. We are open to public and invite you to try us out with a free membership.
