SOAC’s Baton Rouge Fitness Center

Southern Oaks Athletic Club offers a wide variety of fitness classes and options for members at every fitness level. From strength training to cardio, core, and balance work, we are here to help you move better, feel better, and perform better.

We pride ourselves on offering quality fitness programs that are geared to our member’s needs. Our highly-trained instructors and staff members will help motivate you to become your best while watching closely to ensure that all of our classes are safe and fun.

With all Southern Oaks memberships, you get unlimited access to our gym, pool, tennis courts, and at least 50 fitness classes weekly. Whether you are looking for cardio, strength, or flexibility, we have formats and fitness instructors on staff to meet your needs.


    If you have been an athletic club member in the past, you know that simply offering fitness classes is never enough. The purpose of a fitness class is to have an educated instructor present to ensure that you perform the exercises safely and effectively in order to get great results with minimal chance of injury.

    This is why Southern Oaks is dedicated to providing the best fitness instructors in our area for our members. All of our instructors have undergone rigorous background checks, interviews, and class observations and reviews to make sure they have the knowledge and skill to help our members get the most from each and every class they attend.

    We also know that experience is not enough. You also need an instructor that cares about your personal development. In order to get the best results, you need fitness instructors who are knowledgeable and experienced in the class format taught. In addition, SOAC’s GroupX Instructors are also dedicated to the improvement of every one of their students.

    At Southern Oaks Athletic Club, you can count on us to help you get the most from your fitness club membership!





    One of the most difficult aspects of having a club membership is finding fitness classes that meet your hectic schedule. Southern Oaks offers early morning, mid-morning, and afternoon/evening fitness classes, as well as classes on weekends. This helps our members find the class they want at a time that is convenient for them.

    We also feel that the old saying is true – variety is the spice of life – and this is why we pride ourselves on offering a little something for everyone. We encourage our members to try something a little different to help take their fitness to the next level.

    While not all class formats are offered every day, we offer one of the best and most diverse fitness class schedules in the Baton Rouge area. Check out our class times and availability here and sign up for your favorite fitness class today!
