About

Our Story

Core Club LLC was established by Cheryl Salva in 2011 with a vision to provide the local community with a unique health and fitness experience through supportive and friendly staff and an unwavering commitment to help members achieve their health and fitness goals.

In February 2016, Cheryl transferred ownership to Deb Vynalek, a long time Durham resident, a two year employee of the club and a fitness industry veteran. Deb started her career in her teenage years as a swim instructor specializing in working with special needs clients and children. She quickly realized helping others through innovative fitness programs was her calling in life. After college, she managed large aquatics and fitness facilities in southern Connecticut for several years prior to joining Cheryl. Owning a gym had been a dream for Deb that has been finally realized.

Core Club & 24/7 Gym LLC is conveniently located in the Adams Commons in Durham, CT. What truly sets Core Club apart from other fitness clubs is our friendly atmosphere, cleanliness and obsession with the member experience. We are the only true 24/7 facility in the area. We are locally owned and operated. Your membership goes directly to supporting your local economy, not for buying another vacation home for an out of state franchise owner. Our 13,000 square foot facility offers group exercise classes by reservation in our large studio, cardio and weight training in our 24/7 space, cycling, TRX, personal training and boxing in our lower level as well as Mystic Spray Tan. At Core Club, only fun, adventure, buckets of sweat, and a sense of accomplishment lie ahead.

Mission

The Core Club Mission has not changed since being founded in 2011. We believe that exercise isn’t just about looking good, it’s also about how it makes you feel. We reject any notion of “the perfect body”. The perfect you is a healthy happy you, no matter your size or shape. You will always be greeted with enthusiasm and treated with respect by our staff members.

Why Core Club & 24/7 Gym?

We are not a “muscle head” nationwide impersonal fitness factory. We are locally owned and operated. We truly care about helping our members achieve their fitness goals and you will feel that the moment you walk into our facility. Our staff have been with the club for years and we hope you will join us. Come in for a free week today!
