Membership

 
The Houstonian Club is a private health and fitness club dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our Members and their families. Our guiding principle is that this can best be achieved through the development and maintenance of a sound body and an alert mind. The central purpose of The Houstonian is to offer individuals and organizations a unique health and fitness facility with programs and services that focus on renewal...personally, professionally and physically. 

Innovation
The Houstonian Club started selling Memberships in 1978, and when it opened in January 1980, a health club in a 125,000 square foot building was decidedly not commonplace. (In fact, the original Club operators had The Club designed so that it could be converted to a two-story office building, if the new mega-health club concept failed.) From the very beginning, The Houstonian Club exhibited innovation. Some current examples: all of The Club’s group exercise classes have been designed by the Group Exercise, Fitness and Aquatics staff. In 2010 the Club added a second underground parking facility, so every Member could have more covered parking and we christened a new 50,000 square foot indoor tennis facility, the only indoor courts in the immediate area. Innovation is crucial in building and maintaining a competitive edge. We are currently conducting a 23.5 million dollar renovation of our Club.

Values
The Club has always operated with the understanding that people will only accept elite pricing if elite service and products are delivered. This was never truer than when, in 1992, The Club was purchased (along with the adjacent Houstonian Hotel & Spa) by The Redstone Companies. Redstone’s reputation of demanding the highest standards from its affiliate companies and personnel set a course of quality and continuous improvement. Club Members expect all areas of The Club – programming, activities, facilities, services – to be superior to any club in the area.

Service
When The Club opened in 1980, its operators planned to have a relatively small number of Members, so the staff could concentrate on providing a level of service comparable to the country’s finest private clubs. Although The Club now has a rather large number of Members, the policy of unparalleled service has never changed. From the early 1990s, when Club staff participated in several years of Stephen Covey-based training, to present day, when the staff (at all levels) continually engages in service seminars and dialogs, service to the Member is paramount. Almost all the Members (1,800+ each day) are greeted by name when they enter The Club. All four wet areas are continually staffed to ensure Member satisfaction. Many employees have 25+-year careers at The Club, and throughout The Club, Members are smiling and generally fit. All these are tangible examples of the level of service The Houstonian Club provides.

The Houstonian Club’s operators plan to continue raising the bar in the areas of innovation, values and service. In every industry, there is always one company at the top, and in Houston, Texas, it’s The Houstonian Club.

The Initiation Fee, dues and discount percentage will be based upon the Legacy Membership procedures and policies that are in effect on the Legacy Member’s 26th birthday.
