Embracing a healthy lifestyle is easy with Brunswick Forest’s 18,000-square-foot Fitness & Wellness Center. The Center provides state of the art equipment, professional staff, indoor and salt water outdoor pools. In addition to aquatics, there are several pickleball and tennis courts available.

 

This incredible facility contains an equipment room, a steam room, massage therapy rooms, a lounge and the Splash Café. Living your life in southeastern North Carolina, can be quite enjoyable. People looking to re-locate or retire here, love the area for its mild weather, gorgeous coastlines and stress-free living.

Promoting an active lifestyle means providing people with the equipment and environment to achieve it. In this regard, Brunswick Forest has remained a champion advocate of healthful and happier living for its residents.

In the town of Leland, North Carolina, a healthful revolution is taking place. Residents who live at Brunswick Forest are not only given the opportunity to choose the sort of lifestyle they want, but they are given the means to pursue it. An aerobics room and fitness classes create lots of opportunities to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

What makes the Brunswick Forest Fitness Center unique from others of its kind? Unlike most planned communities, Brunswick Forest provides an environment that is fully staffed, with helpful faces who are ready to get you on the path to better living. Need help finding the right machine for you? Looking to join up with one of the many fitness activities? The staff in the Fitness Center can point you in the right direction! Residents can have free reign over their active routines. In addition, a secondary facility, offers a full range of weights and exercise machines at your disposal. It’s a wealth of health at Brunswick Forest and people can take full advantage of it, at their own pace.

Community salt water pools provide another venue for activities or relaxing. Residents can take advantage of the indoor swimming pool if inclement weather arrives. Aquatic activities include lap swimming and water aerobics classes. When the skies turn that pristine Carolina blue, you can quickly turn your attention to the large swimming pool outside as well. A wade-in entry ensures that getting in the pool isn’t a chore. Handicap entry to the pool is also available, so everyone can enjoy.

Brunswick Forest Fitness & Wellness Director, Nicole Stone, has overseen this excellent facility since 2016. Nicole and her staff ensure that each session at the Fitness Center is a safe and healthful one. Nicole tells us:

Residents come to the Wellness Center for many different reasons. Some come just to grab a coffee, sit by the fireplace with a neighbor and watch the morning news. Others bring their grandchildren poolside while enjoying a sandwich from the Splash Café. But the best part for me is watching residents take advantage of our personal trainers and equipment, when it comes to fitness goals or rehabilitation needs. Our heated indoor pool and spa is wonderful for those recovering from surgery. Our staff is super knowledgeable and excited about helping residents rebuild strength, overcome limitations and achieve goals.

Nicole is also the Activities Director for Brunswick Forest, so she organizes bike rides, kayak trips, pool parties, croquet matches, and runs/walks. “It’s all a wonderful way to meet like-minded neighbors. North Carolina has a mild winter so it’s a perfect place for those that like to be outside.”

Each person has their own story as to why they’ve decided to embrace Brunswick Forest’s active lifestyle, but each one has a common goal. Living life to their absolute best.
