The CCC – Fitness & Fun – and Affordable!


Sometimes being new to an area can be frustrating – especially when one really doesn’t know what to ask about when it comes to getting to know what’s around. But it also comes with a pleasant nuance and excitement when someone tells you all about a place that they love to go to.

That was the case this afternoon, when I found out about a great place to enjoy a workout or swim in a heated indoor pool, or even to take a fitness class or two. Thanks to my neighbors, I found out a great deal of wonderful things about the Cattaraugus Community Center in Irving,  So I did a little digging of my own.

Run under the authority of the Seneca Nation of Indians, the CCC’s mission is to help promote healthy life styles for all of it’s members. There are a variety of amenities and services which include a fitness center, an in-door track, a gymnasium, an arena, room rentals, classes, and much more.
