The Spa and Fitness Club at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch provides everything you need for your wellness journey. From group exercise classes to the wonderful benefits of Pilates, and personal training to therapeutic massages, there are many services to help you maintain a healthy body and mind so you can enjoy more in life. There is no better time than now to reevaluate your current well-being and consider how that is serving you outside of your fitness regimen.
Well-Rounded Group Exercise
The Club’s group exercise program offers a variety of classes in a setting that incorporates support, friendship and structure into your fitness routine. Whether you are interested in cardio health and functional fitness, strengthening or stretching, or managing spinal wellness, there are classes for all interests and fitness levels. Kelly Vizzone, one of our professional group exercise instructors, will help you find the right class to receive the most benefits from your workouts while enjoying a fun and social atmosphere. One member shared, “As a new resident, the Cordillera Ranch Group Classes were key to my developing some amazing friendships. We have so much fun that it motivates me to exercise more!”
The Benefits of Pilates
Pilates is an effective way to build upon your strengths, as well as repattern movements that aren’t serving you on the golf course, tennis courts or life in general. The Club’s Pilates program provides four reformers for group, duet or semi-private instruction, and a studio for private Pilates sessions, all taught by Master Pilates Instructor, Kris Cracknell. During a guided reformer Pilates session, you will tap into a new level of body awareness by combining breathing patterns with equal focus on mobilizing and stabilizing. With consistent Pilate’s sessions, you will discover optimal, functional movement for your body.
Professional Personal Training
An ideal way to stay motivated, accountable and track your progress is to train with one of the Club’s personal trainers. For exercise plans, nutritional guidance, pain management and goal setting, our professional trainers can guide you on your health and wellness journey. The Club’s newest certified personal trainer is Mike Miller, and as a former collegiate basketball player, he is excited to help members achieve their fitness goals. All of our certified trainers can provide personalized plans to support you on your path.
Rejuvenating Spa Treatments
In addition to reducing pain and stiffness, the benefits of massage extend to stress management and reduced anxiety, a stronger immune system, increased flexibility and so much more. The Club’s Spa Services offers a variety of massage therapies that can be customized to specific needs. New to the spa team, Lisa Geiman has over 10 years of experience in deep tissue, trigger point, therapeutic, sports, Swedish and hot stone massages, foot scrubs, manual stretching and a variety of other techniques can be customized to each member’s specific needs. Our spa team professionals will have you feeling refreshed, restored and pampered.

If I can describe group classes in one word, I would say FUN! Every class I have taken with Kelly has been fun! She makes everyone feel comfortable no matter what level. I have recently started taking her Zumba class and it’s definitely my favorite! I always feel great after each class!” – Amy Pennington
After several months of hip pain, and no relief from other therapies, I decided to try a massage with Lisa. Lisa is great at listening and customizes my massages to fit my needs. After the first massage with Lisa, my muscle spasms stopped and I was able to sleep at night with no pain.” – Leslie Parnell
