Sugar Mill Athletic Club (SMAC) to Build New 8,000 Square Foot Facility in Youngsville – Develop Lafayette

Sugar Mill Pond Neighborhood Health Club, Sugar Mill Sports Club (SMAC), more than doubling in size with a major new expansion coming to 104 Oceans Blvd. in Youngsville, LA.

The new, state-of-the-art, $2 million, 8,000 square foot health club, unlike anything else in the area, is owned by Nate Pry, whose experience in the health and fitness industry s spans more than 25 years.

“Neighborhood health clubs are common in most major cities in the United States,” says Pry. “The SMAC is the first of its kind in the Acadiana area, providing the community with not only a basic gym, but also a state-of-the-art health club with full amenities.” Pry also states that “convenience has become a driving factor in people’s quest to live a healthier lifestyle. Therefore, providing a comprehensive health club within walking distance to residents of Sugar Mill Pond fulfills this need.

Provided elevation of the project

Currently, most fitness facilities don’t tick all the boxes when it comes to the needs of their communities. So when designing their new facility, SMAC made sure to tick as many boxes as possible. The new facility will include an Olympic-size swimming pool with an adjoining adult lounge, a basketball court and a Pique Pilates Reformer workout studio. Other features include a gym with top-of-the-line cycling bikes, a wide range of cardio equipment, top-of-the-line weight-training equipment, a group exercise studio, and a full-scale locker room. Classes at the property include Pilates, kickboxing, yoga, Zumba, circuit training, cardio, and strength training, as well as a seasonal mommy and me yoga class. Another fantastic service provided by SMAC is their personal training program. each of their personal trainers are carefully selected and hold degrees or certifications in their respective fitness-related fields.

Since the facility is located in Sugar Mill Pond, full SMAC membership is exclusive to residents living in the Sugar Mill Pond community. However, there are other services that the public outside of Sugar Mill can take advantage of, such as their Pique Pilates Reformer studio, personal training program, as well as their wide range of group exercise classes.

The tentative completion date for the newly expanded Sugar Mill Pond Athletic Club is set for January 2023. Perfect timing for all those “Hashtags; New Year New Me!” people.

The address in the map image above is not incorrect, but a new address “Oceans Blvd.” will be added. They missed the perfect opportunity to call it “Oceans Avenue”, but whatever. IYKYK.
