Best Fitness Center

CRITICS, UPSTATE | Hockessin Athletic Club
100 Fitness Way, Hockessin, 239-6688
The key to HAC’s success is commitment to families. There’s child-care on site, a gigantic aqua area with a water park, lap pool, adult whirlpool and outdoor pool. There are treadmills, bikes and cross-trainers, a free weight area, strength training equipment and a variety of classes. But the owners didn’t just throw kids a bone. They created a fun space that includes a large gym, martial arts studio, Kids Maze, and more. That said, the center is perfectly fine for single adults, too.

CRITICS DOWNSTATE | Firm Fitness Center
803 Rehoboth Ave. Ext., Rehoboth Beach, 227-8363
Firm Fitness Center’s best asset is its personal training. Owner Paul Timmons is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Head trainer Ted Dabbs has a master’s degree in exercise science. The gym offers 16 pieces of Hammer Strength equipment, as well as non-traditional gear like kettlebells, cast-iron weights with handles for lifting, swinging and otherwise hossing around. The center serves people of all fitness levels.

CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Forever Fit Foundation
328 Kennett Pike, Chadds Ford, Pa., (610) 742-8060
Forever Fit Foundation offers the same type of resistance training Olympic swimmer Dara Torres used to get her 41-year-old body into gold medal shape, as well as specialized Gyrokinesis. Certified pros excel at tailoring programs to clients.
