“Wellness used to be treadmills,” said Springmoor Chief Executive Officer David Ammons, and when Springmoor opened its doors in 1984, the community reflected that: the exercise rooms were small and were filled with stationary bikes and treadmills; the aquatics pool was simply for those who enjoyed water aerobics.
Today, Springmoor views wellness as “whole-person” wellness through the Pathways program that grew from the roots planted in the community’s development. Physical wellness is still a component, but emphasis is also placed on a person’s emotional, vocational, nutritional, social, environmental, spiritual, and even intellectual well-being—aspects that were all taken into consideration in Springmoor’s nearly complete Pathways Wellness Center.
The community will celebrate the grand opening of the Pathways Wellness Center on March 25 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Residents currently enjoy a variety of activities through the program, from exercise classes to life writing workshops and everything in between, and the added services and amenities of the new wellness center will allow Springmoor residents to broaden their pathways to wholeness.
In just a few short weeks, Springmoor residents and their guests will be able to enjoy a 25-meter salt water lap pool, state-of-the-art Keiser fitness equipment in an expanded fitness space, hot tub, sauna, movie theater, beauty salon, café/bistro, massage therapy rooms, movement room that will accommodate a range of wellness classes, billiard and bridge tables, and more.
“For me, wellness is also allowing a grandfather to visit with his grandson over a movie and popcorn in the comfort of his community—that’s wellness if his life is improved because he gets to spend quality time with his family,” added Ammons.
These enhancements should not only get Springmoor residents excited about fitness, but also help them enjoy their lives at the community much more by having such amenities right at their fingertips.
Right now, the finishing touches are being put on the Wellness Center. It should be complete and open to Springmoor residents and their guests before the end of March!
