T h e C l i f f s W e l l n e s s C e n t e r a t M o u n t a i n P a r k [ 32 ] • # dayspamagazine • july 2017 destination: wellness How it stands out: Active living is a full-time commitment at The Cliff s' collection of private residential health and wellness communities located in the Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. Six Wellness Centers are at the heart of the seven luxury home tracts, providing spa services ($75-$170) and more than 2,800 wide-ranging health, fi tness and performance classes, including yoga, water aerobics, Zumba, balance, and golf and tennis conditioning. How it came to be: "Long-term wellness has been an integral part of The Cliff s since its founding in 1991," says David Sawyer, president of The Cliff s Clubs, which began with residential golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus, among others. The new Mountain Park center ups the ante with The Cliff s' most elaborate wellness center yet: The Escape Fitness Octagon workout circuit adds high-tech pizzazz with the U.S.'s fi rst Escape Fitness FunXtion machine, a cloud-based virtual trainer. How it packages wellness: Membership is de rigueur for nearly all residents of The Cliff s, so instead of an à la carte menu, an annual Active Membership includes amenities for well-to-do property owners through initiation fees ($25,000- $50,000), plus monthly dues ($260-$996). The Cliff s' residential spa concept attracts an active demographic that takes its health seriously, whose needs are met with the wellness center, a three-pronged educational curriculum (gardening, cooking and nutrition), cycling and extensive sports facilities. "Our programs and spa services strive to keep our members swinging faster, serving harder and moving stronger," says senior wellness manager Ryan Kamszik. What it includes: Active Membership allows residents unlimited use of The Cliff s' wellness centers, plus the beach club, golf courses, tennis courts, clubhouses, dining and marina facilities, as well as full access to outdoor activity areas, encompassing hiking, biking and walking paths, and horse trails.
