100 Fitness Way
Hockessin, DE 19707
The Hockessin Athletic Club (HAC) opened its doors June 10, 2007 after the transformation of a 12 acre mushroom processing site. The owners of the club, Bob Carpenter and Roger Ralph, between them had over 40 years industry experience and set out to create a unique family and community oriented health club second to none. Today, HAC is the only tax paying health club in the United States bordered by a state park. The effective use of the land for both the club and beautiful Tweed's Park reflects the cooperative effort of the Delaware Department of Transportation, HAC, and the Hockessin community. The foundation for what the club does and its commitment to serve its members and community well are inherent to the Club's philosophy and culture.
Though Rodger Ralph was a key figure in the construction of HAC and it's early years as a business, he is no longer an owner.
Today, HAC is proud to offer its members over 175+ group and aqua fitness classes each week, an expansive Aquatics Complex featuring a heated outdoor pool and Cold Plunge tub, up to 2 hours of childcare daily for members ages 3-13, and many other amenities and services.
