Does California Family Fitness have childcare?

Busy parents have no time to spare. Personally, balancing my kids, work, family and everything else—finding time for fitness is incredibly hard. 

My secret? A gym that offers childcare. It's the ultimate parent hack to free up time for yourself, plus give your little one some socialization and engagement.

So, what about California Family Fitness?

Yup! This family friendly gym chain absolutely offers childcare—at several of their locations. We appreciate their dedication to busy parents—squeezing in a workout becomes much easier.

Got it. Which locations have childcare?

Of their 18 total gyms, 13 of them, or 72% of clubs, offer childcare. That's great news for parents, as they'll be able to get a sweat in while their kids are playing nearby. 

Of course, we didn't expect anything less from California Family Fitness. With facilities that are geared towards total family health and wellness, this club is a strong contender if you're looking to join a health club.

What can I expect from California Family Fitness' childcare offering?

Quite a bit—their child and kids offering is pretty extensive. Here's how it works:

  • Infants - They can help supervise, play and take care of children aged 3 months to toddlers. The area is separate from the main play section, and all the typical baby/infant stuff is there: diaper changing stations, bouncers, walkers, and stimulating age-appropriate toys. Of course, it's 100% attended by trained staff at all times.
  • Young kids - smaller up to age 4. More age-appropriate fun and games, along with arts and crafts, story books and more. Here's why we love California Family Fitness: some locations get a dedicated, outdoor playground
  • Kidz Klub - For children aged 4 to 11. Depending on location, your kid will see different amenities. Some of our favorites: a kid-sized basketball court, climbing maze, and air hockey. Even better: a kid friendly (supervised) climbing rock wall. Yes, really!

There is a 2-hour time limit per day, with kids actively supervised. With so many play options provided, California Family Fitness is one of the best child-focused gyms out there.

Is childcare free at California Family Fitness?

Yes, it is included in your monthly membership cost. Know that access to a single-club is somewhere around $60/month—typically more than many of the other gyms you'll see on this site.

But, with single-day passes at other gyms for kids/childcare around $25, just one visit here with your child already makes it worthwhile. And with all that Cal Fit offers, we're sure that you'll be back often.

The gym's childcare is a gamechanger

  • Convenient! On-site babysitting facilities means parents can reliably get their exercise done without fear or worry of their kids wellbeing. It becomes an actual one-stop for the day to make sure you don't miss a workout.
  • Safe! Daycare facilities require certain health & safety standards, usually mandated by the county or city. This often means at least CPR certification, along with other safety protocols.
  • Flexible: We like when the childcare hours are clear and easily found. This makes planning our workout both flexible and reliable. Parents, you know how it is to juggle schedules—especially around nap time!
  • Great Interaction: Many babysitting/daycare services at gyms focus on engaging playtime activities—giving your kids a stimulating environment where they may play games and with other kids.
  • Peace of Mind: Happy kid = clear mind = great workout. All is intertwined. Knowing that your child is entertained and well-supervised gives you great peace of mind. Your mind is then clear to help give your body a great workout!

What else should I know?

As per their name—California Family Fitness—you can expect their total family focus to be very good. Here's what they mean:

"Fitness for the Whole Family" Our child care program is a reflection of what we value most – family fitness and health. To that end, we offer our youngest members programs and amenities designed just for them.

You can experience family-geared amenities like:

  • Child Care & Kidz Klub - Their traditional, "childcare" offerings described above
  • Kids Pools - Think: waterpark, at the gym! Kiddie pools and shallow spray gardens. Seriously, very water-park like fun for kids, at the gym! When temperatures soar in the Sacramento area, guarantee your kids will ask you to go to the gym!
  • Rock Climbing - Available for supervised and expert trained lessons 
  • Birthday Parties - Yes, you may host parties at their Elk Grove Bond and Rocklin Sports Complex locations! Along with pizza, cake and decor, partygoers can use the outdoor swim/splash areas, or air jumper climbing wall and more.
