Keep clean to stay strong!

At Riverfront Athletic Club, we are very concerned about the cleanliness of our facilities and equipment because it is our duty to make sure our Hudson patrons have an enjoyable time as they workout. If you are focused on whether or not a piece of equipment is clean enough to use then that is an unnecessary waste of time. That is why we stick to a rigorous and regular cleaning routine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we offer separate changing/storage rooms for men and women, free of charge. Riverfront Athletic Club is not responsible for lost or stolen items. We highly recommend that you bring your own padlock and lock up your personal belongings prior to your workout. Bringing your gym bag into the fitness center is highly discouraged.

When it comes to workout clothes, comfort is far more important than fashion. Rather than purchasing clothes that look good, you should purchase clothes that feel good. When trying on workout wear, it is important that you bend and stretch or jog-in-place to make sure your clothes fit well. If you purchase ill-fitting clothes, you may find yourself adjusting your garments throughout your workout. At Riverfront Athletic Club, we recommend that you consider the following when purchasing workout gear:

  • Fabric: Wear fabrics that allow your skin to breathe. Wicking material, such as a polyester blend, won’t trap in moisture and will allow your skin to breathe, keeping you cool during your workout.
  • Sneakers: Running shoes are the most important piece of gear in your workout wardrobe. It is important to consider what type of exercise you will be doing before purchasing running shoes.
  • Bra: When it comes to high-impact exercise, it is critical that you wear supportive bra. A good sports bra will prevent breast, back, and neck pain as well as the breakdown of ligaments.

The right workout wear will make a tremendous difference in your overall gym experience. We are more than happy to provide you with recommendations on athletic clothing brands or point you in the direction of a nearby sporting goods store. Please do not hesitate to ask!

You should stretch before and after you work out. Light stretching before exercise can prevent injuries from occurring and stretching post-exercise can help to reduce muscle tension and increase flexibility.

If you are a beginner, here are some important things you should keep in mind:


  • Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the class. This will allow you enough time to find your place on the floor.
  • If this is your first class, we recommend that you place your mat in the second or third row so you can learn from others in the class.
  • If you used one of our mats, we ask that you please wipe it down so others can enjoy a clean mat after your use.
  • Please turn off your phone before entering the room (or store your phone in your locker!) and exit silently as to not to disturb the final Savasana.

Important to know:

  • You will be doing a lot of downward poses, so it is best to avoid loose fitting clothing.
  • Eat a light, healthy meal 2 hours before the class and drink plenty of water. Feel free to bring a water bottle to the class and drink as much as you need to during your practice.

Keep in mind:

  • There are hundreds of different poses, some of which are more difficult than others. Don’t feel discouraged or worry about looking silly. Grow and practice at your own pace!
