Recreation & Wellness



Get fit. Have fun. At the Shaw JCC, we can help you reach your wellness goals, no matter where you're starting!


Traditional Jewish thought suggests that we must keep our bodies well for the sake of spiritual pursuits and  in order to fulfill mitzvot, commandments.


The J has a state-of-the-art fitness center, a full size gymnasium, racquetball courts, tennis courts and playing fields. And in all of those places, we've got fun and challenging programs as well as free time for you to play your own game.​




To register for programs and services online, you must sign in with your "My Akron J" credentials. You may also register over the phone at 330-867-7850.
