16 Apr Top Ranked Fitness & Wellness Center in the Nation
Club + Resort Business recognizes Mizner Country Club
as the #6 Top Ranked Private Club and Resort
Fitness and Wellness centers across the United States.
Inclusion on this list highlights the investments these clubs have made in their facilities and the commitment to the guest experience. All listings were selected and ranked by a panel of judges. The rankings reflect the judges’ scoring of submitted entries that included data on fitness and spa facility size, and the size of retail and/or food-and-beverage facilities related to fitness/wellness; average member usage, both on a monthly-visit basis and as a percentage of total membership; equipment value; classes and services offered; and staff size (both full- and part-time).
A $22 million expansion project completed in September 2019 reimagined life at Mizner CC by providing an immersive lifestyle with health and wellness amenities. Mizner has positioned itself as the first country club on the east coast of Florida to be equipped as a “Total Technogym Fitness Center” with wall-to-wall equipment.
Forty percent of the expansion was devoted to fitness and wellness with two levels. The first level houses a group cycling studio complete with floor-to-ceiling video and lighting effects, Pilates Reformer studio, aerobics, cycle studio, massage therapy, skincare, tranquility and steam rooms, and an innovative Aquatic Center.
The upper level is devoted to the Technogym Fitness Center. As Technogym’s flagship country club, Mizner’s state-of-the-art fitness equipment gives members an interactive wellness experience by using technology to personalize their training. Each piece of equipment connects to a user’s digital device, enabling them to keep track of their personal fitness, goals, training data, and programs while gauging their progress on the equipment.
Members can also access their personal information and training programs on any Technogym machine worldwide from any personal device—mobile, tablet, smart TV, PC, or everyone’s ‘Mywellness key.’ A “Mywellness” cloud identifies members from an app on their device as they enter the Fitness Center. It can record their physical moves, calories burned, miles traveled on the equipment, and more.
There is also a backend of the Mywellness software designed for the Mizner Fitness team, which enables the club’s trainers to tailor workouts, track progress and conduct an analysis of a member’s physical progress at any point in time. Most recently, on-demand trainers and classes have been added to many cardio pieces and on the app, offering guided workouts from their smart device or on screened equipment.
The Fitness Center’s main floor encompasses 6,000 sq. ft. and houses over 50 pieces of equipment. Two outdoor decks on the second (sky) level allow trainers and instructors to take their clients or class outdoors.
The group aerobics studio is another 1017 sq. ft., and the 532-sq. ft. Pilates Reformer Studio, the 725-sq. ft. Cycle Studio, and the two Spa and Tranquility rooms round out the overall Fitness Center complex.
Mizner’s fitness programs don’t end with physical facilities alone. The club has also developed mental-health Zoom seminars, Zoom yoga classes, outdoor tai chi, year-round aqua aerobics and core-board classes, and after-school boot camp classes. Even the culinary team is involved, by providing healthy menu options from vegetarian to gluten-free.
Mizner CC’s fitness program and facilities were recently featured in this segment of C+RB’s “The Road Back” video series:
