Bird Key Yacht Club is about so much more than boating. We pride ourselves in offering members the very best facilities for a variety of activities encouraging fitness as well as some friendly athletic competition. 

Fitness Center

Our fitness center is open 24/7, offering members an assortment of state-of-the-art equipment in a relaxed setting. For aerobic exercise, we offer treadmills, an indoor rowing machine, ellipticals, stationary bikes and more. Free weights, weight machines and a TRX System are available for strength training. Personal trainers are available to greatly improve your workout and physical conditioning. Lockers, showers and dressing facilities are offered for your convenience.


Our Olympic sized pool is situated in a picture perfect spot overlooking Sarasota Bay and the city. But, it's so much more than a lovely view. Swimmers lap up the lanes. And our members looking for stress free exercise are regulars for water aerobics.

Line Dancing

Country line dancing bars could take a page from our book. For more than 20 years our members have come together to learn line dancing at Bird Key Yacht Club. Instruction is provided to members, many with no prior dance experience, by a professional instructor. Then watch out: most people find it addictive and become regular attendees. Often, following line dancing classes, members meet at the bar to quench their well earned thirst


Those who like to explore using pedal-power and fresh air will enjoy the many club organized bicycle outings in the greater Sarasota area. The group charts a course on bike trails and/or light traffic road ways to enhance safety. Each adventure features a stop for lunch at a local restaurant or a reciprocal club.


Yoga brings flexibility, strength and balance to its practitioners and the healing benefits of yoga are practi-cally limitless. Our professional instructors teach a therapeutic style of yoga perfect for all levels of fitness and flexibility. Yoga classes are open to all members for the season or just as a drop in.
