The Danville, Calif. property announced the opening of the 9,400-sq. ft. facility after a five-year development process and over a year of construction. The project, which took five years to complete, transitions the club from an unstaffed, self-service fitness-center model to a state-of-the-art, full-service facility.
Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, Calif., has announced the opening of its new Fitness and Wellness Center, marking the culmination of an improvement project that has been in process for five years. Ground was broken in June 2017 after club membership voted to approve the improvements.
The club is transitioning from a small, unstaffed, self-service fitness center at its Falls Clubhouse to the new $5.3 million, 9,400-sq. ft. Center, which features LifeFitness equipment, with all cardio equipment lining an array of windows overlooking the East Bay hills.
As the new landmark of Blackhawk CC’s Sports Complex, the Fitness and Wellness Center also features a 1,200-sq. ft. group exercise studio, alongside an adjacent 1,200-sq. ft. outdoor workout area, three wellness rooms, and men’s and women’s locker rooms.
The Fitness and Wellness Center is located next door to the club’s Kid Care facility, making it convenient for members to drop off their kids and get a workout in.
A staff of fitness professionals, including five personal trainers and three massage therapists, has been hired to operate the facility, led by Fitness Director Dave Hart and Assistant Fitness Director Shelby Stamets.
The club will offer upwards of 40 to 50 group exercise classes per week that are included with a club membership. With the Blackhawk CC community being fitness-oriented, there will also be many specialty classes for members who play golf, tennis or swim, or compete in marathons and triathlons and road-bike and hike in the nearby Mount Diablo region.
The new Fitness and Wellness Center enhances amenities at Blackhawk CC that also include two championship 18-hole golf courses, 18 tennis courts, six pickleball courts, three bocce ball courts, three racquetball courts, a championship 10-lane lap swimming pool, and multiple restaurants and bars.
