We believe you will enjoy every visit to the Collins Aerospace Rec Center, and are confident we have all the programs, services, equipment, and expert fitness staff to help you attain whatever your goals may be.
We encourage you to make use of our complimentary fitness staff services, as this can be your most powerful tool while being a member at the Rec Center. All of our fitness specialists have a four-year degree in a health related field, and have earned their ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) certification. Upon enrollment, a fitness specialist can give you an orientation to our multitude of offerings. Further, they can tailor an exercise program to your every need and show you the proper mechanics of prescribed exercises.
If we don’t meet your expectations, we would certainly like to hear from you, so we can make your member experiences even better. Please feel free to provide feedback by using our suggestion/comments box, located in the lounge or by setting up an appointment with one of us at the Front Desk.
Yours in health,
Mike Duffy and Pam Fox

Match Play Tennis Centers, Inc. is a contract management firm that has operated the Collins Aerospace Recreation Center and Physical Therapy since it opened in 1986. In May 2013, Match Play Tennis Centers, Inc. was purchased from Hank and Lesley Aldrich by Pam Fox and Mike Duffy.
When the Rec Center first opened it’s doors, the High Court area consisted of 4 indoor tennis courts, and the current cardiovascular area was a basketball court. There were a few pieces of cardiovascular equipment, limited free weights and three rows of weight machines, surrounded by a padded carpeted track.
Today, the Physical Therapy and Recreation Center continue operating as one of the best corporate programs in the state. A major renovation was completed in 2012 and a locker room renovation/expansion completed in 2018.
