This is a fast paced world we are living in. Our lives are high stress environments full of countless hours at our jobs, commutes, family and the endless activities we all participate in. But things are easier on the Ranch!
The amenities at the Spa & Fitness Club allow us to use our time more efficiently while improving our health and building lasting relationships with our friends and neighbors. Offering state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment, personal training, Pilates, yoga, golf fitness training, numerous group fitness options, massage therapy, light therapy, facials and a Kid’s Club, there is something for everyone.
We all know the importance of being physically active and the health benefits associated with it. The Club helps facilitate these goals with Precor® cardio and strength equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and a StepMill. A variety of strength machines and free weights suit the many preferences and styles of weight lifting, and Personal Trainers are ready to assist those who prefer a personalized workout developed to focus on their unique situations.
Group Exercise is offered within the fitness spectrum and is a great way to incorporate support, friendship and structure into your fitness routine. Classes range from yoga to spinning to mat Pilates and traditional aerobics, motivating you to get the most from your workout while enjoying a fun, social atmosphere.
Pilates is a popular system of exercises that utilizes various pieces of equipment to help you stretch, strengthen, balance and tone the body. The Club offers a highly trained PMA-certified Pilates instructor equipped with a Reformer (a spring-loaded Pilates machine), Arcs (arch-shaped equipment for back mobility), Tower and other equipment to create the full Pilates experience. Exercise programs are tailored to each person’s specific needs.
The Spa offers several massage therapists and many massage options including Therapeutic and Swedish to Reflexology and Hot Stone. Relaxation and healing are the ultimate outcome. The Clubs’ esthetician enjoys enhancing the look and texture of facial skin as well as providing a sense of relaxation and peace. Your self-confidence is sure to increase and you will leave with a general feeling of well-being.
A large challenge faced by many of the families on the Ranch is childcare. Finding a babysitter for those evenings you’d like to enjoy dinner with your significant other, a quick round of golf or a workout is no longer a decision maker for your activities. The Kid’s Club is available, not only as a means of childcare while you participate in the many activities available at The Clubs, but also as a place of social interaction for your child. From games to books to arts and crafts, there is something for every child.
Men’s and Women’s Locker Rooms are available to unwind after a round of golf, spa service or workout, or simply gather and spend time with friends. From shoe service, steam showers and food and beverage options, the Locker Room is the ultimate retreat.
Members and their guests are invited to experience all the Spa & Fitness Club has to offer and enjoy the many services, people and beautiful scenery that make Cordillera Ranch such a wonderful place to call home.
