If you’ve ever tried to establish a workout routine, you know how difficult it can be. Not to mention, when you add kids to the mix, the challenge to get to the gym can be even greater. These gyms in the Lake Oswego area are hoping to remove at least a little of the barrier between you and the treadmill!
Each of these gyms offers a variety of fitness options and amenities, from yoga classes to barre classes, and swimming pools to saunas — plus the added benefit of childcare. Drop off your little ones for an hour or two of playtime while you sweat it out at the gym. This can go a long way in helping you and your family establish healthy habits and an active lifestyle!

When Lindsay Barney moved to Lake Oswego, she found a need for a family-centered fitness studio and decided to create her own. It was then that Level Workout was born. Recently opened in the newly developed Windward building in the heart of Lake Oswego, this interval training studio offers childcare and an overall connected, community feel. Choose from 2–3 classes offered a day, during both the morning and night — all of which provide childcare for children 3 months and older in the room next door. Add $5 to your $20–23 drop-in fee or purchase a childcare 10-pack for $40 if you know you’ll be back!
Bay Club in Tigard is much more than a gym — it’s a resort-style property with year-round sports and recreation for both individuals and families.

All the while, Bay Club offers professional childcare at Kids World, which provides a playful environment with age-appropriate activities. Hours vary for age groups, but childcare is provided for little ones 6 weeks old all the way through 12 years old.
