Wellness Through Active Fitness

A great way to embrace wellness while in Ponte Vedra is through an array of fitness activities. We all know the YMCA has long been recognized as a go-to spot whether you want to lift weights, play a little basketball or hop on the treadmill. The YMCA in Nocatee and the Brown Family YMCA in Ponte Vedra Beach have taken the Y experience to even heightened levels. These Ys provide a wide range of active experiences to aid in wellness. Try the Airnasium in Nocatee – their “open-air covered gymnasium concept.” You can also get your weight workout in while looking over a water view along the Nocatee Parkway, or try pilates, yoga or martial arts. The Brown Family Y in Ponte Vedra Beach offers a heated outdoor pool open year round and embarked on a revitalization plan in 2022 to add an Airnasium. They also added new pickleball courts taking advantage of what the United States Sports and Fitness Industry Association named as the fastest-growing sport in the nation. Give it a try, it’s an easy sport to pick up and has a short learning curve. There are day passes available if you just want a quick one-day experience.

Biking is another option – get your exercise in and see the Ponte Vedra sites. Why not try a new twist – rent an ebike.  It’s a whole new way to experience a bike.  You get much of the traditional motion of pedaling but can get some additional help if you need it.  Pedego Ponte Vedra can rent you the bike and provide riding suggestions.  You can also sign up for one of their guided tours – whether a beach experience or backroads in the Guana Wildlife Management Area.

Why not try one of the newest approaches to a workout – electro-muscle stimulation (EMS) technology. This innovation creates up to 150 times more muscle contractions versus conventional training. Through this technology, you can often achieve results in 20 minutes that would require hours in a traditional gym. BODY20 Ponte Vedra Beach and Fit20 in Nocatee are two options to test out and make your Ponte Vedra wellness journey truly unique.
