The Fitness Center occupies a vantage point with Blue Ridge Mountain views visible through the tall windows that wrap around the building. Getting a good workout with a good view is a winning combination. There is something for everyone in this Fitness Center from “gym rat” to the more meditative yoga practitioner. The building is divided into two main sections with training equipment in one section and exercise classroom in the other. Men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, a massage therapy room and the office of the Sports Director, Tim Dixon, complete the space.
Specialized equipment includes: Cybex weight training equipment, Precor cardio training equipment and free weight area.
The following classes are offered:
- Nia – combining elements of dance, yoga and tai chi – non-impact exercises done to music and are easy to follow
- Water Aerobics
- Fusion Exercise
- Golf Fitness

There is ample room for sunning by the pool or retreating to the shade of the pool pavilion with tables and chairs. Outdoor restrooms and showers are also provided.
