When you are researching a vacation resort, do you look up the fitness/wellness options that are available? We attended the Encanterra Country Club Resort Community Live Well, Wellness Fair to learn about their “live a happier and healthier life” options. The half a day event showcased the fitness and relaxation activities.
Alvea Spa is located within the Encanterra Country Club Resort Community. They hosted a booth today to share their variety of services.
- Chair Massages
- Aroma Therapy
I have visited the Alvea Spa for many services and my favorite is getting an hour-long pedicure. There are very relaxing. There is something great about having my feet massaged.
Culinary Team of Encanterra
Encanterra Country Club Resort Community has 2 main restaurants, 1 breakfast restaurant, and 2 poolside restaurant/bars. Today they provided juicing recipes and demonstrations of healthy tasting juicing.
There was another table where we could sample the different protein balls. I forgot what the representative said each one was made up of. However, I do know that they all tasted good.
We wore our fitness clothes and bought our yoga mats. The three wellness classes took place on the soft green space overlooking the expansive 18-hole golf course and lakes.
It had been a long time since I attended a Tai Chi class. It felt good to perform a relaxing routine. Per the class description, “An ancient form of Chinese exercise of slow, beautiful, relaxed movements that develops a sense of balance and harmony between mind and body. Improve flexibility, coordination, concentration, balance, endurance, stamina and strength – all while helping to relieve stress.” Have you taken a Tai Chi class?
This was my first time in a POUND class. We received 2 POUND Sticks as we either stood or sat on the yoga mats. Then we followed along with the instructor pounding the sticks on the mats and clicking them together. The class description mentions, “Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training with yoga and pilates-inspired movements.” We created some great music. Would you take this class if it was offered at the resort you were staying at?
Our final fitness class of the day was with a line dance class. We learned so many fun dances to songs such as Uptown Funk and Fireball. Our instructor provided very simple explanations of steps as the songs played. It appeared that everyone was having a fun time.

This was a great day to learn about the options when at Encanterra Country Club Resort Community. I know when we travel I look up the fitness room and what equipment is available. Now I will also find out about the fitness classes. Would you vacation at a fitness resort?

I also attended this event. It was a great way to learn all of the fun and healthy things to do. Enjoyed the outdoor classes.
I loved taking the outdoor classes too.
This is a great form of self-care!
what a fun way to spend a day! I love exploring wellness options and I’ve always wanted to take a pound class!
It was our first POUND class too.
I have to admit, fitness/wellness options are not usually my first thought, but it looks like the Encanterra Country Club Resort Community has a lot of really neat options available!
Yes, this was a great way to showcase their offerings.
I would most definitely take a Pound class! It sounds so fun and it’s not something offered where I live.
This was our first POUND class. I had not heard of it before.
I probably need to pay more attention to Wellness features beyond just massages! Thank you! 🙂
The massages are a top priority.
I love all the activities they offer! How fun!
Sounds like you are similar to us and try everything.
It looks like you had a fun and varied day. I have been to only a few resorts (I usually stay in smaller hotels) but never thought of checking up their wellness program, it is a good idea.
Each resort has a variety of services to try.
Looks like a lovely place to visit! I love the Country Club life!
The country club life is amazing.
looks like a lot of really good information.
Yes, the protein samples were good too.
Sounds like a fun day! I have tried line dancing, but not Pound or Tai Chi. New experiences are always great!
I always love trying new ways to move my body, so I would have tried all three classes and who is going to say NO to free samples! Yum!
I agree, try everything.
I’ve never heard of Pound class but it sounds like fun to me and of course, line dancing is a blast. My kids go to a square dance every year and it’s a blast. That’s actually my type of exercise.
I had not heard of a POUND class before then either. A square dance class would be fun,
What fun ways to stay healthy…would love to try a pound class.
The POUND class was great. Each person can participate at their own level.
Looks like a great experience
We had a great time.
Id personally love to vacation at a fitness-centric resort – as long as I was still allowed a martini! These activities sound fun and engaging tho – I bet it’s an experience.
We like a good martini too!
I would love this kind of getaway!!
Active and relaxing.
It’s funny, I never set out to visit a place because of its spa but I do partake in the spa from time to time. You’d think it would be a bigger deal to search spas out when selecting our hotels but I just don’t. I might however, start now thanks to your post
Usually, we look for activities in the area and the Spa is a bonus.
Looks like some great offerings!
Right, a good variety of activities.
This looks like my kind of vacation. Great recommendation; thanks!
We enjoy being active while on vacation.
I’m all about the wellness spa and cuisine at a resort. Makes health maintenance while traveling much easier
I agree. I enjoy the fitness class when we are on a cruise.
I have wanted to take a pound class. You have inspired me!
You will love the pound class.
Interesting, I haven’t heard this place. I will have to check it out for sure.
They have lots of activities.
This looks like something we would really enjoy!
I never knew there was such as thing as wellness fair. My body is telling me that I need to check this out! Sounds like so much fun!
LOL. Trust the body.
My mom is always asking me if I know of any fitness resorts… I could never say yes! This looks like it is really beneficial. Thank you for the recommendation!
You are welcome
