"I love this club. Definitely not "Mcfitness". Joined about a year ago, just do the fitness membership and has everything I need with good equipment, and good folks in gym with no big crowds or big attitudes. Wish I had found this place 20 years ago."

"LNRC is a wonderful tennis facility with a variety of fitness and tennis programs. Its a great place to connect and meet friends while participating in one their classes, leagues or fun socials."
"My husband and I have been members for approximately 12 years. Membership at LNRC includes access to the Monarch Beach location as well, so you have access to over 20 tennis courts, 2 pools and 2 gyms with everything you could possible need, including classes such as yoga, spin, Pilates and much, much more! The fitness instructors are caring and very knowledgable. The tennis program is unparalleled in Orange County, with many wonderful pro's as well as access to leagues, clinics and open court play for all levels of players. They even help members set up matches. In addition to the tennis and fitness programs, there are a variety of fun social events, child care and a bar and grill. "
"I joined the club about a year after having some injuries that made it very difficult for me to walk. It has now been three years since then and I can now walk and hold up my 7 year old. Swimming at the club has made a major difference for me. There are a lot of people that have been very supportive of me here and the pools at all the locations have been great. I never miss my swims and it has really helped keep my body loosen up as I have worked to increase my walking. "
I wanted to send you a note and simply say thank you for all of the Group Classes the club is continuing with and implementing. Most noticeable to me and many of the club members I have become friends with are the group classes that Dina Martin-Rusk has taken over and been presenting. Dina’s Ripped class is great, she changes up the Ripped class every so often, and is positive about everything. Dina also took over the Thursday evening 6:00 PM Spin Class which was losing folks. Dina has turned that Spin Class completely around to such an extent that those who attend that Spin Class are coming out of the class saying what a good class it is. Yes, she has great music in the Spin Class and we work out with weights and also do sit-up’s which has changed the Thursday night class for the best. Simply said, Dina is great and I’m grateful that we have her to help us all along with so many group classes she leads. Now, I also have seen Dina leading the Zumba class which is typically full; however, if I tried Zumba I’m sure I would look like a cross between a beached Manatee and a drunk seal and nobody needs to see that much lack of coordination.
Your other instructors such as Holly are also amazing and I do not want you to think that other instructors are less appreciated. It is just in this case, I’ve personally watched Dina improve that Spin Class so much and make Ripped even a greater workout that I thought it was worth taking the time to put my compliments and gratitude in writing.
I joined LNRC 4 months ago and it has changed my life in such a wonderful, positive, healthy way. After not playing since High School (many moons ago) I decided to get out there and join the club. Everyone from the 1st day have been so helpful and just to hit with Mark Spearman was a joy-he is so easy going.
I attended the Christmas party not knowing anyone and Mr. Cecil Spearman walked up to me and just started a nice conversation with me and told me how happy he was that I joined the club. I had no idea who he was!I am getting up to speed each week with my tennis taking lessons, live drills and finally on a league.Thanks for getting me back into a sport I love.
I just wanted to say thank you for another summer of wonderful tennis and fun for the boys. They love attending the tennis camp and never want it to end. I must admit these days with computers, Hulu, Netflix, etc., it is hard to find something active and outdoors that keeps the kids wanting more. Tennis at your club has been that “thing” that the boys really enjoyed and would choose tennis at LNRC over computer games. Please pass along my thank you to all of your staff.
We would also like to register my 10 year old Arman and my 13 year old Kamran for clinics. I know you and I spoke this summer but I cannot remember who you recommended me to call. Kamran would like to work towards making Dana Hills high school team. Any advice would be appreciated.
Another bit of news on the junior front: my son Chase Aplin was a finalist at the recent USTA tournament in Costa Mesa in Boys 14. He is now ranked #27 in Satellites for So. Cal. His progress this year under the guidance of Rob and Tim has been outstanding. Chase looks forward to playing for DHHS as a freshman next season.
My husband and I just completed a one month membership at Laguna Niguel Racquet Club while on vacation, and we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed this place! Thank you for getting us acquainted with all of the club’s services and for giving us a warm welcome each morning. Thanks also for mentioning the fabulous exercise classes the club offers taught by top notch instructors such as the spinning classes, yoga classes with Veena and Julie, the challenging strengthening class with Jennifer and the athletic Pilates class with Hollie; they were all excellent! Frequently in the afternoon, I would return in the late afternoon for a tennis session in Open Courts and I want to thank Felicia for organizing groups that promised to be fun. As it happened, The Laguna Niguel Racquet Club soon became our home away from home, as it gave us many beneficial, challenging and fun activities to do everyday!
A club like this is a jewel in any city in any part of the world. Not only does it offer members, temporary or otherwise, a fantastic combination of top notch staff from the front desk to the snack bar, and in the classroom and all the way out to the last court, it also has a community of lovely members who kindly extend themselves to newcomers. I know of no other club except my home club in Portland Oregon where I have been a member for 20+ years, where I have felt as comfortable. Whether it was chatting at the snack bar over a beer after tennis with a group of neat people, or having a spontaneous conversation in the locker room or on the courts after a match, much of the goodness in our vacation flows from having made many new friends here. The LNRC performs a service to visitors in the area by granting temporary memberships. My husband and I look forward to returning to Laguna Niguel area and hopefully will return to this club. It has been our pleasure to get acquainted with this community of great people and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We appreciate the excellent job the Spearmans have done in putting together a club like this. It is a real gem!
