Taking Family Fitness

to New Heights

Welcome to Ochsner Fitness Center, formerly Elmwood Fitness Center! For more than 30 years, Elmwood Fitness Center – part of the Ochsner Health System – has been the top choice for people who want to look and feel great.

This year, we have changed our name to Ochsner Fitness Center as part of our ongoing commitment to providing best in class service and facilities. Our new name comes with upgraded equipment, improved facilities and expanded community outreach programs and represents our commitment to delivering best-in-class services and programs designed to help you meet your health and fitness goals.

Our aim is to keep the whole family fit by offering lots of options to keep you motivated, including a variety of classes for seniors and tons of fun activities for kids. Here you’ll find some of the most innovative programs and equipment in the country, as well as nutrition, massage and other services to help you make the mind-body connection.

Healthy. Happy. Inspired. There’s a new you waiting at Ochsner Fitness Center.
