Recognizing the unique opportunity within private clubs to create a comprehensive wellness lifestyle for its members, Club Wellness Evolutions assists private clubs seeking to introduce or progress their existing wellness operations. We use a team approach for creating a wellness lifestyle.
The Wellness Lifestyle Concept is not accomplished by simply adding a Fitness Center or Spa facility, but rather by introducing a wellness ecosystem that integrates with and enhances the existing club model. This approach offers members additional places and opportunities to connect within the club while experiencing programs and services designed to profoundly impact members’ health and well-being and in doing so, enhance their club experience.
As the private Club Industry continues to evolve, the opportunity of becoming a comprehensive wellness community offering lifestyle programs and services to a multigenerational population has emerged. Much like the wellness model itself, clubs find themselves somewhere on the continuum, questioning what they need to do in order to be competitive and meet the needs, wants and expectations of current and future members.
The forward-thinking clubs are offering facilities which rival destination spas with comprehensive “circle of care” programming including physical therapy, a vast range of fitness modalities from medical fitness to performance training, nutritional counseling, therapeutic spa treatments and modalities, skincare services and health/life coaching professionals dedicated to executing a concierge approach to improved member health and wellbeing.
