Exercise Logging System (ELOG)

Elog is a computer system which organizes, tracks, computes, and analyzes an individual’s cardiovascular activities. Members record each day’s cardiovascular activities on log sheets located in either the fitness area, café or pool. This information is entered in the system, which then calculates total mileage, calories, and aerobic points.

Personal Training

Personal training will provide you with a more individualized program that is designed only after your fitness level has been assessed through the Advocate Heart Risk Assessment conducted at Riviera. This enables our certified staff to design a more specific program with more specific goals. Our personal trainer will motivate and educate you to achieve maximal results and benefits.

Swim and Tennis Lessons

Riviera offers year-round personalized instruction for all ages in swimming and tennis through private, semi-private, and group lessons. Lessons are given by highly qualified instructors.

Group swim lessons range from water babies to advanced stroke development and refinement. One instructor for every four children maximizes their learning experience.

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.
