PCC’s Fitness Center is situated in the southwestern corridor of its clubhouse, overlooking the driving range and pristine putting green. The Fitness Center, which offers a full array of strength, cardio, and flexibility training equipment attended by a fitness professional, is a shining example of big things coming in smaller packages.
With an attendant on duty at all times to ensure safety and exercise efficiency, PCC members always have industry experience and knowledge at their disposal. The Fitness Center offers personal training, small-group training programs, group exercise, and a virtual workout library. By providing a wide array of offerings, members are not only provided with an atmosphere for training in a method that makes them feel most comfortable, but also for enjoying exercise and being part of a welcoming fitness community.
PCC’s fitness program offers 80 classes a month, giving members plenty of opportunities to join in the fun, including these popular offerings:
The “Women on Weights” (WoW) small-group training program, offered several times a day in six-week sessions, is one of the most popular programs in the club’s fitness department. Designed with the recommended amount of weekly activity for a person in mind, these classes, totaling 1.5 hours of resistance training per week, give the women who participate the perfect amount of strength training, coupled with cardio “homework.”
“Body Blast” is a circuit-training class that burns fat while increasing full-body strength and explosiveness. One of the most intense classes offered, it adapts to suit the conditions around the club, with members sometimes running hill sprints from the Shooting Lodge on a warm summer’s day, or gathering in the Spring Mill Room to escape the winter chill.
RESULTS: Cardiorespiratory endurance, strength training and flexibility are the focal points of this group-exercise class. Using a wide variety of equipment, members can enjoy a class that accommodates all skill levels while being pushed to their individual limits.
Yoga: An upbeat Vinyasa flow allows members to find their center while also pushing themselves physically to new levels. While working up a sweat and elevating their heart rate, members can expect to become more flexible and mobile.
Pilates: Offering an opportunity for members to build their mat Pilates skill, the class uses props, key sequencing, and precise cues to fine-tune the smaller stabilizing muscle groups. Stabilizing, strengthening and lengthening the spine and extremities help participants achieve better balance and posture. All levels are welcome, as everyone works together to help build each participant’s classical Pilates flow.
Teen Athlete Program: These classes help those from 13 to 17 years old stay physically active and get ready for whatever sport they wish to participate in. The program provides an opportunity for the teens in PCC’s family-focused membership to utilize the club in an individual setting. Scaled training allows all levels to benefit, and whether the class is working on fundamental exercise form, developing plyometric power, or balance, you’ll find the teens working hard to improve their skills and utilize their abilities.
HIIT in the Pool: By using High-Intensity Interval Training principals, members can experience a low-impact exercise that challenges their cardiorespiratory system from the comfort and style of PCC’s newly renovated pool. Equipment used includes kickboards, pool noodles, and foam dumbbells. As with PCC’s other classes, all levels are welcomed and everyone is encouraged to push themselves to reap the benefits of aquatic exercise.
