PGA National Resort & Spa Announces New State-Of-The-Art Sports & Racquet Club

PGA National Resort & Spa
- South Florida's world-class golf, spa, vacation and meetings destination - announces the opening of its newly renovated high-tech Sports & Racquet Club (SRC) for use by its members, resort guests and group attendees.

The 33,000-sq. ft. facility recently underwent an impressive $4 million comprehensive facelift. Upgrades include state-of-the-art exercise equipment, indoor racquet ball court, three aerobics studios with new sound systems, five-lane saltwater lap pool, spin room with video road mapping, indoor volleyball court, two lighted pickle / paddle ball courts, 18 Har Tru tennis courts (11 lit for night play) and one lighted hard court with a hitting wall.
The SRC offers more than 75 classes weekly and is staffed by 12 nationally certified personal trainers focused on individual service. Classes include yoga, Pilates Barre, Zumba, belly dancing, Tabata Boot Camp, Tai Chi, and an array of dance, strength and cardio sessions. TRX, cardio boxing, kickboxing, rowing and heavy ropes are also offered for high-intensity workouts.
The SRC additionally features the cutting-edge Power Plate machine - an innovation muscle-activation device using whole body vibrations to develop strength, power, muscle tone and definition.  

The SRC is also offering a "Speed Pass" for young athletes. The monthly card provides access to three weekly classes specifically designed for sports pre-season training. The classes are based on the PARISI Speed School - a specific training program focusing on the essentials for sports movement including speed, acceleration, change of direction, and total body conditioning. 
For kids, SRC's "iZONE" has the latest video game systems, computers for homework and a cardio wall to get kids moving.  Classes for children (ages 8-15) will be offered.
The spacious, two-story structure also features a fashionable boutique offering the latest apparel lines in tennis and athletic wear as well as a complete selection of sports drinks and beverages.
"With our vast number of classes and array of equipment that is the latest in fitness technology, our Sports & Racquet Club now is the premier facility for physical well-being in the Palm Beach area," says Jen Orsi, fitness director. "Our professional staff is laser-focused on inspiring and enhancing the quality of life for our members, guests and group attendees."
The SRC is part of the recent $125 million renaissance of the legendary South Florida destination which includes floor-to-ceiling makeovers of its 339 guest rooms; luxurious, themed suites; lakeside wedding / meeting venue with stunning vistas; and iDECK - a 3,000-sq. ft. terrace ideal for indoor-outdoor entertaining.
These enhancements follow previous substantial revitalization to PGA National's member clubhouse, golf amenities, conference and meeting space, striking zero-entry pool, chef-driven Ironwood Steak & Seafood restaurant, and chic iBAR in its glamorous lobby.
PGA National offers memberships for the SRC as well as for golf, tennis and social / recreation. For more information, email or call 561.273.2920.
