Blue Sky Holdings, Inc., the parent company that includes Manchester Athletic Club in Manchester by-the-Sea, MA, MAC Fitness in Rowley, MA, and MAC Fitness in Gloucester, MA, was recently named to the list of America’s Top 100 Clubs of 2012 by Club Industry.
The local sports club corporation, which services families on Cape Ann and the North Shore, was chosen from over 13,000 health and fitness clubs nationwide. Dedicated to seeing its members reach their personal fitness goals since 1973, the club itself has reached a few of its own in recent years. Manchester Athletic Club has undergone a complete renovation, including a new fitness area and equipment, a state-of-the-art childcare center and the addition of several new tennis courts. In 2011, Manchester Athletic Club’s MAC Tennis program was named one of only 24 Certified Regional Training Centers in the country by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). Today, the program is receiving national and international recognition as home to some of the top competing junior players in the country. In 2009 the company expanded to include MAC Fitness in Gloucester with MAC Fitness in Rowley following in 2010.
"Manchester Athletic Club has a long and established history on Cape Ann,” said Keith Callahan, General Manager and Managing Partner. “It’s great to work with such a dedicated team of tennis, fitness and service professionals. While industry recognition is clearly appreciated, the real success story for our club is the impact we’ve had on the families of Cape Ann."
“It’s been an amazing journey to see this company, its membership and our dedicated staff grow our clubs to the point that we are recognized among the top in America,” added John Donovan, Owner. “With this award, we aim to energize not only our company, but our membership as well.”
