The Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur and the Marilyn Fox Building in Chesterfield offer a world-class fitness experience to members of the J. Each features the latest in equipment technology, full gymnasiums that can accommodate basketball, volleyball and badminton; indoor running tracks; three indoor pools, including a recreational pool in the Staenberg Family Complex, and two outdoor pools. The SFC also offers racquetball, handball, international squash and tennis courts. Each building offers specialty fitness studios (cycling, reformer Pilates, yoga and performance training) and all memberships include free group exercise, yoga, cycling and mat Pilates classes. 

While health and wellness is our mission, the J isn’t just about fitness. Hundreds of programs educate and challenge people of all ages and abilities. The Early Childhood Center (both locations) offers childcare and award-winning curriculum for children 6 weeks through 5 years. The Adult Day Center (SFC) provides the highest-quality care for loved ones, and Kitchen J provides catered and home-delivered meal services to seniors. Our Inclusion program serves people of all ages with disabilities by providing fitness, theatre, camp and social experiences.

The J hosts a variety of summer day camps at both locations, and Camp Sabra provides a residential sleep-away camp experience on the Lake of the Ozarks. Professional cultural programming, including the St. Louis Jewish Book and Film Festivals, live theater from the renowned New Jewish Theatre, and children’s theater round out offerings that serve the minds, bodies and souls of the Jewish community, and the community at large.

Felicia Malter is Board Chair.
