A better you means a better community. We are non-profit meaning your membership goes a long way. The Corpus Christi Athletic Club is owned and operated by the Morris L. Lichtenstein, Jr. Medical Research Foundation. That means 100% ofthe profits go towards all the great events the foundation supports throughout our community.

Since the mid-80s, the Corpus Christi Athletic Club has been an advocate of health and well-being. With the help of the members, we have been able to achieve these same goals for our entire community. The next time you step on a treadmill or take a dip in the pool, take comfort in knowing that with every step and with every lap, you are shaping a better community.
