The full-service fitness center is projected to open next summer, measuring 6,500-sq. ft., and offering equipment, classes, and personal training. The fitness center is one in a series of phases the San Angelo, Texas property is planning for the coming year, including the addition of 600 homes.
Bentwood Country Club in San Angelo, Texas has torn down its original clubhouse built in 1978 and is in the process of clearing the area for the pad of a new fitness center, projected to open next summer, the Madison, Wis.-based Athletic Business reported.
According to an October permits and inspections report on the city of San Angelo’s website, the project is valued at $745,000, Athletic Business reported.
The club previously had a personal training room, “but what we’re putting in is vastly different,” said Kevin Collins, Bentwood’s director of development. “It’s a full-service fitness center. We currently have 1,000 members at Bentwood, and all 1,000 members will have access to the fitness facility. We will be having daily classes, personal trainers on staff, a director of fitness. Everything your regular fitness centers do here in town, (Bentwood members will) be able to get right there at the club.”
Collins said construction of the 6,500-sq. ft. building is expected to begin in December with a June or July 2016 opening, Athletic Business reported.
“We’d like to get that done before the swim season begins because it will be adjacent to our pool,” he said. “It also will have an outdoor pavilion and bar area that will look over the pool and tennis courts.”
The addition of the fitness center is just one in a series of phases Bentwood has planned for its residents in the coming year. ”Bentwood recently purchased a large amount of land for another 600 homes,” Collins said. “We’re in the process of becoming San Angelo’s master community.”
He added that four new residential sections will be ready for purchase by the first quarter of 2016, Athletic Business reported.
“Our whole business plan is built around family and community,” Collins said. “Our goal is for (residents) in Bentwood to never have to leave the development. We’re not a part of the Walmart going in but in essence, there’s not much reason you have to leave. You can go across the street to get your groceries, and we have everything (else) you need. Our goal is to create the best value for residents and create a total community.”
