Mokena Gyms

Workout to Improve Your Physical and Mental Health

Nobody needs to remind you that following good diet and exercise regimes are essential to keep you healthy. Shockingly the Center for Disease Control estimates that only 23 percent of Americans are getting enough exercise to keep them lean and in shape. That is one in four people. Take a moment to let that sink in. Are you the one or are you one of three?

Today break free from your not exercising or not exercising enough routine and join one of the gyms near Mokena.  Riviera Sports Center & Health Club is an excellent spot to workout. The facility is clean, and the members are people just like you and they offer a variety of physical activities that will motivate you to keep going to the gym.

What are the Benefits of Daily Workouts?

There are many benefits when you work out every day. For starters, you get yourself into a routine where exercise becomes essential again. Regular exercise gives you a mental boost you need to start making healthy changes in all areas of your life. For example, you will begin to feel better about yourself and decide to take more personal risks that will open new doors for you. Soon you will find yourself eating healthier and making better food choices.

Some benefits from working out at a gym include the following:

  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, diabetes, and obesity
  • Keep joints, tendons, and ligaments flexible
  • Reduce the pain of osteoarthritis
  • Uplift your overall mood
  • Lessen stress and anxiety
  • Increase energy and endurance
  • Improve sleep
  • Stabilize metabolism

COVID-19 Update

June 18, 2020

Riviera Country Club Members:

Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting our way of life for all of our families, friends and businesses, particularly in the state of Illinois. First and foremost, our hearts go out to anyone who's been impacted by the virus, either directly or indirectly. Our thoughts are especially with those who are sick, to whom we extend our heartfelt wishes for a full recovery.

We receive inquiries daily from members asking, “When is the Club going to re-open?” Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to that question as it is entirely up to the governor to give us that approval. The state has recently moved to Phase 3 of its plan, which on the surface includes the opening of “Personal Care Services and Health Clubs” however, it only allows Health and Fitness Clubs to provide outdoor classes for up to 10 participants and one-on-one personal training indoors with IDPH approved safety guidance. This in no way, by any stretch of the imagination, constitutes the opening of Gyms and Health Clubs.

Please keep in mind that we are a full service all-inclusive club with many members and could not reopen in piecemeal form. Most members have specific aspects of the club for which they have become members and use it: Some for tennis; others for exercise classes; and still others for the pool or spa or something else. If any of these aspects cannot be available, then the club does not serve a purpose for those members. Therefore, the entire club will need to be open and available to our members when we open our doors again.

To that end, it looks like the governor’s plan would need to move to Phase 5 for Health Clubs and Spas to fully re-open. The governor’s plan would move to Phase 5 when either a vaccine is developed to prevent the spread of the virus, a treatment option is readily available that ensures health care capacity is no longer a concern, or there are no new cases over a sustained period.

We hope to have additional information in the near future as we move through these unprecedented times. In the meantime, please stay healthy.
