The Monroe Athletic Club was established in January of 1990 by the Smith family. The location was a renovation of the former Chauvin Racquet Club which closed its doors years ago. Originally designated as the Monroe Racquet Club, the facility was developed to house a fun, family-oriented Tennis Center for the surrounding community. In 1995, the Smith family decided to transform the club into a full-scale, Multipurpose Health Club and renamed it the Monroe Athletic Club. Since it opened the club has grown in every facet from facilities and amenities to membership base. To this day the Monroe Athletic Club prides itself in being one of the most complete family Fitness Centers in the South!
