The Cliffs at Walnut Cove Opens New Wellness Center


ARDEN, NC – The Cliffs recently opened a state-of-the-art 18,000-square-foot Wellness Center at its Walnut Cove community in Arden, N.C., the latest in a long line of first-class amenities that stretch across its eight luxury developments based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Western Carolinas.

The Center offers a four-lane outdoor pool and a two-lane heated indoor lap pool that are junior Olympic lengths. There also are spacious aerobics and fitness rooms filled with the best training equipment and a spa treatment center adjacent to the full locker room facilities for men and women. A huge meeting room is also available.

It’s the latest amenity at Walnut Cove that also features a Jack Nicklaus Signature Design golf course that opened in 2005.

"We offer a full schedule of personal conditioning programs, classes and activities for our Members," said Vance Ferrigno, director of wellness programming. "Our goal is to help our Members improve their lives outside the gym, whether that means having a better golf game or do whatever it is in life that brings them fulfillment. Our goal is to make The Cliffs the healthiest place to live, work and play in America."

The Cliffs offers a comprehensive wellness program focuses on mind, body and spirit that is supported by preventative medical programs, customized individual programs, wellness coaches and nutritional programs. More than 3,000 programs are offered each year throughout all the Cliffs communities.

These programs are sustained through formal affiliations with leaders in the field of preventative healthcare, including, for example, the Wake Forest University School of Medicine.

The Cliffs Communities recently received national recognition for its innovative employee wellness program, earning a gold distinction from the Wellness Councils of America (WELCOA).
