The Health Connection is located in the Northwest Michigan Health Center at 1293 East Parkdale Avenue in Manistee. Fitness classes are included in a membership. Flexible membership options are available, including a family rate. Learn more about our rates and membership options.
The fitness facility has a variety of exercise equipment including treadmills, stair climbers, rowing machines, elliptical trainers, and stationary bicycles. There is also a free-weight room, stretching and toning area, and an aerobic circuit.

The staff at the Health Connection consists of certified instructors and exercise specialists that can evaluate medical history and help develop short- and long-term fitness goals. They can determine target heart rate range, analyze body fat composition, and conduct fitness testing for strength, endurance, flexibility, and cardiovascular health. All Health Connection staff members are CPR-trained.
