"The Mandel JCC is easily the nicest, most welcoming, and most lavishly equipped gym to which I have ever belonged. Since joining (about 9 months ago) I find that I look forward to my semi-weekly workouts more than usual! I look forward to remaining a member here for as long as I live on the East Side!"

"I really enjoy the friendly, welcoming environment of The J, which is far above and beyond most gyms in my experience. The staff also keeps the facilities absolutely spotless and clean - a fundamental asset for a fitness center! The J also offers some niceties that many gyms do not: your membership includes access to the pool, sauna, steam room, and whirlpool, which I try to make time for as often as possible. It's a real added value! Though I am not much one for group fitness classes, they are abundant here. If it is your thing, you'll be well covered!"
"When I was deciding which gym to attend, I went to 3 different places in the Beachwood area. One was too intimidating, the other was too expensive. The J is great, clean, and I don't feel pressure during my workout from anyone but myself. The atmosphere is very different in the mornings vs. the evenings (older vs. younger) but I like both crowds.  When you sign up, you get two free sessions with a personal trainer in order to go over the machines, and help you manage your fitness goals. They also offer a bunch of other free trials for different classes and aquatics.  I use their AMT's, ellipticals, stair mills, rowing machines and general strength equipment.

"I like the atmosphere here and the yoga classes are great.  Nice pool, great hours, good swimming lessons too.Excellent equipment and staff.  I really enjoy this gym, which has all the perks of the competitors yet has a sense of community."

"For the past 6 months I have been working out at the Mandel JCC with a wonderful personal trainer, Emily, who motivates me, inspires me and cheers me on even every grunt, lunge and step of the way. I love The J... its clean, the people are friendly, the hours are great and oh, by the way... I've already lost 30 pounds!"

"I joined this facility in Beachwood, a Cleveland Ohio suburb, because of its excellent after school program for my child.  I'm a working mother who wanted the best for my daughter & I got it at the JCC! The counselors are fantastic and children can have fun, complete their homework and have swim lessons by the time I get finished with work.  The summer camp program offers the best activities including kayaking, rowing, riding and daily swimming lessons. Both day & overnight camps are available! 

Fitness, Wellness & Recreation


For 25 years, a group of men who love basketball and don’t mind playing before sunrise hit the hardwood three mornings a week at The J.

“There are always great match-ups and we’ve done things over the years to build on the foundation, such as summer barbecues, golf outings and birthday celebrations. Those are the kinds of things that couldn’t be replaced at another gym.” Scott Lewis - Morning Basketball Player

J-Day Camps & Camp Wise Overnight Camp


“The J’s willingness to accommodate Ellie and put together a thoughtful plan based on Ellie’s needs as a whole was very comforting to me. The camp directors do everything they can in the best interest of the whole family, and that is something you can’t put a price on. They make sure everyone in the family is taken care of, and they realize that every child is an individual.” - Mother Sarah Gann

“To give the gift of overnight Jewish camping to our kids is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. Kids are able to find their own identities, figure out their own boundaries, make their own friends and truly become part of the Jewish community."  Seth & Jodie Bromberg - Camp Wise Parents

When Maddy Pilloff follows her older brothers, Jacob and Justin, to the Mandel JCC’s Camp Wise this summer, she will continue a family legacy that began in 1987 when her father, Jeremy, joined the staff of the overnight camp.

“We know they’re in a good, safe place – both physically and emotionally. We feel very fortunate to have such a top-notch Jewish overnight camp so close to home.”- Jeremy Pilloff (Camp Wise Parent)

Adult Programs


This is a very interactive group, it’s not just a lecture or speaker series. One of the great things about this group is that it’s very intellectually stimulating. Our blood moves a little faster when we are here, and I think that’s a very important part of what goes on in this room.” - Longtime Men's Club Member Allan Bellin
