Spartan Health Club opened its doors to the public in June 30, 1976. It was a lifelong dream realized by Mickey Haughton-James, who was then a well known fitness enthusiast.
He was joined in the fledging venture by Cindy Breakespeare whose victories in the Miss Jamaica Body Beautiful, Miss Universe Bikini and Miss World Pageant, all in the first 6 months of the Club’s operations, propelled it to instant national fame.
Compared to its humble beginnings, at the time, the facility was a true reflection of its name, as the equipment available was quite ‘Spartan’, having only free-weights the development and changes at Spartan have been dramatic. With its facility now spanning 11,000sq ft, it is presently the home for strength training for athletic clubs and national sporting teams such as, Racers Track Club, The Jamaica Cricket Team and the Jamaica Basketball National Team.
However, while the Health Club is widely acclaimed for producing national and international world-class athletes, fitness champions, body builders and Miss World contenders, our main clientele are regular health and ”keep-fit” enthusiasts.
