The Bonita Springs, Fla. club has nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated to fitness operations and a cafe that serves made-to-order salads, bowls and wraps, fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, and other grab-and-go options for members and guests.
The staff at Bonita Bay Club’s lifestyle center in Bonita Springs, Fla. is guided by a philosophy of “Make Fitness Fun.”
“If something is fun, you want to go back, and that’s a win-win for all of us,” says Tammy Mugavero, the club’s Director of Fitness.
The facility has nearly 20,000 sq. ft. of space dedicated to fitness operations and a cafe that serves made-to-order salads, bowls and wraps, fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, and other grab-and-go options for members and guests. Members can also visit an 8,000 sq. ft. spa and salon with amenities such as a mineral pool, steam room, and a sauna with a Himalayan salt wall.
Bonita Bay differentiates itself through its healthy lifestyle initiative known as the WAVE (Wellness and Vitality Enrichment). The three components of this wellness program are symbolized by a color-coded triangle, Mugavero explains.
“The three sides of the triangle … represent Movement (blue), Nutrition (green), and Mental/ Emotional Health (yellow) and provide a road map for all of our wellness programming,” Mugavero says. “In some way, all that we do fits somewhere in this triangle.”
The fitness center is a wall-to-wall Technogym signature facility, featuring top-of-the line Artis cardio and resistance equipment, as well as Technogym’s SkillLine for Athletic Performance, BioCircuit and an Advanced Recovery Suite.
“Having wall-to-wall Technogym equipment is a difference-maker,” adds Mugavero. “When you walk into our facility, you get the wow factor right away.”
Bonita Bay’s talented employees also help the club stand out from the crowd. The fitness center and spa together have 90 employees. Among the 43 fitness center staffers, Mugavero says there are 16 personal trainers, most of whom either have a degree in kinesiology, exercise science or another health-related field, or 25-plus years of experience in the fitness industry. The staff boasts two Licensed Physical Therapists, a Licensed Athletic Trainer, a Licensed Physical Therapy Assistant, five certified RBB coaches, five RacquetFit Certified Professionals, and the facility has the largest TPI Certified Golf & Fitness staff (20) of any club in the country.
“The diversity and quality of our staff is what makes the member experience exceptional,” Mugavero says.
Bonita Bay is one of just three clubs in the U.S. to offer the BioCircuit, an equipment line that provides a short, tailored workout featuring smart technology that adapts to the user’s body and tracks progress. The center has the Advanced Recovery Suite, featuring NOVO XT massage chairs, Normatec Compression Therapy, Red Light Laser Therapy, zero gravity chairs, and two treatment rooms for in-house physical therapy service.
Bonita Bay is one of two clubs in Southwest Florida offering Gyrotonics and the only area club providing Rock Steady Boxing (RSB), an exercise program geared to those with Parkinson’s. Mugavero calls the club’s dedication to RSB “really special.” The club has five studio spaces for pilates and Gyrotonics, spin, group fitness, RSB, and golf-specific conditioning. The Player Performance Studio for golf-specific conditioning was the first studio to be modeled after the PGA tour trailers and fitness centers equipped by Technogym.
