I like to swim at the Wave in one of its two pools. The staff is friendly, and the club is low key. It is a nice alternative, when you aren't skiing.

Visited Whitefish and purchased a week's pass for the family. Great value and enjoyed the club. We played basketball, and used other gym facilities. Well worth the money.

Might be the finest Health Club in the country. The people are friendly and it is very very clean. Splurge for a personal trainer or take one the many free classes. You won't be sorry you went here.

We purchased a guest pass for one week. Used it every day. It was never crowded when we went before 8 AM. Clean, with locker rooms the best I've ever experienced. This is the only facility I've ever patronized that had individual mens showers. Three pools, so even though there were many kids, it never intruded.

We brought the kids here when we learned the pool in our motel was closed for maintenance. It's more like a health club/gym than a water park but there were three pools available - one wading pool with a water slide for kids, a larger pool with lanes for swimming laps, and a very warm pool that is used for...

This is a great health club. Most people in Whitefish belong, so it has become one of the community's centers of activity. Don't let the cars in the parking lot discourage you. The place is rarely crowded.

I live in Whitefish and I drive to Kalispell every day to work out. Some of the people here are rude and the place needs to be cleaned more often. This IS Whitefish so, I guess you have to be a millionaire to get friendly service here.

The Wave is big enough to accommodate many people so there is typically never over crowding. Right after school drop off, pick up and 5pm are the busiest times I avoid. There are often great specials for 60 day memberships. The gym is clean and I am always greeted upon arrival and departure.
