July Fitness Events at WELL Spa + Salon
30 Jun, 2011
In July, the AAA Four Diamond Grand Geneva Resort & Spa will host three events designed to get guests and local residents moving. Visitors can make the most of Grand Geneva’s extensive sporting facilities and take advantage of the summer weather as they raise their fitness to a new level.
The events available to resort guests and local residents at the WELL Spa + Salon in July include:
Independence Day celebrations continue well into the month of July as the WELL Spa + Salon hosts the Red, White & Blue Tennis Mixer on Saturday, July 16. Guests can show off their backhand on the resort’s outdoor tennis courts as they enjoy music and a fun, social atmosphere, with opportunities to play matches against a variety of participants. Guests will want to leave their tennis whites at home; anyone dressed in red, white, and blue will enjoy a complimentary “Marty Special” cocktail, named after Head Tennis Professional, Marty Badt. Prepared with a refreshing mix of tequila, cranberry juice, watermelon schnapps, and Blue Curacao, the colorful beverage is sure to help guests cool off after a vigorous game.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. and costs $10 for members and $15 for non-members. If inclement weather occurs; the event will be moved to the indoor tennis courts. Due to limited space availability, those interested in participating are encouraged to register for the event by Thursday, July 14, 2011. For more information, please call 262.249.4750.
Basketball Training Sessions
Whether kids are looking to improve their game or just have some fun, the WELL Spa + Salon has them covered. Open to guests and the community, this basketball training camp will help children brush up their skills through a series of drills and fun exercises. Kids can remember the event with their free camp T-shirt, available to anyone who signs up for three or more sessions.
There will be two basketball training sessions held in the WELL Spa gym in the month of July, the first July 11-15 and the second July 18-22. Kids ages 8-10 will play from 10 a.m. to 11.30 a.m., while those ages 11-13 will hit the courts between 12 p.m. and 1.30 p.m. The sessions cost $30 per day or $125 for the week, and reservations are required by Saturday, July 16, 2011. For more information or to register for a session, please call 262 249.4750.
In need of some relaxation? Learn how to truly unwind with Chi Gong, a yoga-like activity that helps calm the mind and spirit. Boasting numerous health benefits, Chi Gong has been shown to strengthen the immune system and reduce stress, as well as improve balance and posture. In this class, guests will learn how to breathe correctly from the tan tien, a point on the body below the navel. Taught outdoors so guests can enjoy the picturesque views, the class will conclude with a complimentary cup of tea and a special meditational message for each participant.
Weather permitting, the one-hour class will take place on Friday, July 29, at 5 p.m. on the outdoor pool deck. Tickets are now on sale at the WELL Spa + Salon, priced at $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Reservations are required by Saturday, July 16, 2011, due to a limited capacity.
