Fourth of July a blast at The J

Most people think of fireworks when celebrating Independence Day, but at The J the holiday means the 4th of July Bash! From 1-4 p.m., members will enjoy a pool party with raft races, a splash contest, a DJ and more! Grace Ensign, Membership Director, says that the 4th of July Bash is “something fun to do during the day before the fireworks start.” And she is absolutely right, the splash contest is tons of fun! The J staff act as judges to see who can make the biggest splash in the pool, and Ensign is excited to see the crazy ways people come up with to get the biggest splash. She says “people get really creative and it’s fun to see that.” If creating a splash isn’t up your alley, the raft races might be for you and the DJ will provide the perfect soundtrack to family fun at the pool.

In addition to the 4th of July Bash, there are several other membership events to look forward to this summer! From boxing classes with Muhammad Ali’s nephew, Ibn Ali, to the Summer Fitness Fest on June 25 and Players Challenge on June 26. As a farewell to summer, the J is hosting a dive-in movie on September 3 where members can watch a family-oriented movie projected onto a large screen while enjoying the last day of the pool for the season.

In order to enjoy the 4th of July Bash and other membership events this year, sign up for the summer membership and receive the same perks as annual members. All members at The J can choose from more than 80 free group fitness classes each week, three pools and unlimited access to the workout and cardio areas. Summer memberships are ideal for busy families who have other activities during the school year but need somewhere fun to go during the summer. For more information on summer memberships, visit
