eNews from The Hills

January 22, 2016


imgDear Members,

January started off with some great vibes here at the club with the opening of the remodeled fitness center on the 11th. We have chosen Technogym as our provider and I have been hearing some great comments by the members.

“These machines make working out fun again!”

“I have had lingering tendinitis in my right shoulder and usually stay away from the strength machines, but I haven’t been feeling any pain during and after a workout on these.”





I realize that these machines are a new direction in fitness here at the Hills and are not your traditional machines. Because of this, we have on-going group orientations four times per day Monday-Thursday, and two times per day Friday-Sunday. This is a great time for you to get a basic orientation on how to use the machines and learn how to use the helpful Mywellness app by Technogym. The Mywellness app allows you to have an individual profile recognized every time you step on the cardio machines. This app also allows you to scan the strength machines and watch how-to videos for your workouts. Download Mywellness app by Technogym in your app store.

Besides the remodeled fitness center, January was the start of the popular Passport program. Complete at least 12 different activities in any of the next three months and receive a $20 credit for each month (up to $60) on your account. Complete 12 activities during each of the three months and you will be entered to win the Grand Prize of a $250 account credit. This is a great way to try new things around the club and get credit toward your dues! Stop by the front desk today and grab your passport. February will be bringing new items to the Passport so don’t forget to grab a new one after January 25th!

In closing, we don’t have any updates on the upper parking lot remodel and fitness center expansion. We are still waiting on (now) two counties to give us feedback on our plans and give us the next steps to get these projects accomplished. We will give more news as new details are shared with us. Thanks again for a wonderful 2015 and I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for us here at The Hills!

To your health & happiness,

imgTry our new ZEN•GA™ class and feel amazing!
ZEN•GA™ is an energizing blend of yoga, Pilates and breath work, often done on the Pilates Reformer where you work and stretch muscles and fascia (the connective tissue in and between muscles). Fascial fitness is the new frontier in fitness and exercise: Injuries, imbalances, tight muscles, tension and weakness often stem from tight or dehydrated fascia that needs to be moved and released. No previous yoga or Pilates experience required.
First class is free!
Come try ZEN•GA™ on Mondays at 5:00PM!
