Champion Hills Fitness and Wellness Center Ranked ‘Top 50 in U.S.’ by Club + Resort Business

(HENDERSONVILLE, N.C.) – The Fitness and Wellness Center at Champion Hills – one of Western North Carolina’s premier golf communities – has been ranked among the Top 50 in the U.S. by Club + Resort Business (C + RB), coming in at No. 44 on the inaugural list.

A leading trade publication based in Cleveland, C + RB covers the operations and management staff at country clubs, city clubs, yacht clubs and resorts that operate club-like facilities. Its “Top Ranked” initiative for fitness and wellness highlights properties with the “Top 50 Fitness and Wellness” facilities and programs, as judged independently by a panel of general managers from several top clubs.

“Champion Hills is a lifestyle-focused club that’s committed to our members’ health and wellness, and we greatly appreciate this recognition from a well-respected publication like Club + Resort Business,” says Champion Hills General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Dana Schultz. “We’ll continue to invest in our fitness and wellness facilities, programming and service as a major cornerstone of the club.”

Champion Hills’ Wellness Center and Pool Complex is located within its stunning, mountain lodge-style clubhouse complex overlooking the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Replete with the latest cardio and strength training equipment, it houses a spacious room for yoga, spin, Pilates and other group classes. A hydro spa is also available and popular with members for relaxing their muscles post-workout.
