Getting enough exercise is important for improving health and well-being, but it can be hard for people over 55 to keep active. Luckily, Sun City has plenty of amenities for residents looking to stay fit or just get outside to enjoy one of Georgetown’s many sunny days.
If you are a golfer looking to spend more time out on the green, this is the community for you. There are three golf courses a short golf cart drive away: Legacy Hills, Cowan Creek, and White Wing. Each of these courses is professionally designed and landscaped with 18 holes, driving ranges, and putting greens. Legacy Hills also has a fully stocked pro shop. The courses are open to the public but residents receive discounts when purchasing annual passes, punch cards, and merchandise. A dress code is enforced so make sure to look your best before packing up your clubs.
In addition to golf, residents can spend time outdoors with bocce ball, tennis, pickleball, and softball. There are several parks nearby with walking and hiking trails, and the Sun City Park includes a dog park so your furry companion can join you in stretching their legs and keeping active.
Of course, sports are not for everyone, so Sun City also has two fitness centers available for all residents. Both of the centers include multiple pools (indoor and outdoor), cardio and muscular workout equipment, an aerobics studio, and personal training. Group classes are also taught at both locations for people who want to get moving but don’t want to do it alone. There are classes for cycling, yoga, water aerobics, full-body, cardio, even dance classes like Zumba and ballet. New members of the fitness centers are given complimentary orientations, a free session with a trainer and each household receives two passes for group classes. If a workout proves to be too much and you find yourself needing to relax, the Cowan Creek Fitness Center offers massage therapy services.
Since being active is more fun with friends, why don’t you check out one Sun City’s many chartered clubs? The community has clubs for everything including softball, pickleball, tennis, bocce, hiking, cycling, even golf. For residents who want to put some groovin’ in their movin’, there is a ballroom club, a line dance club, and a square dancing club.
Keeping active doesn’t have to mean driving across town to go to the gym, here at Sun City fitness can be fun. For more information check out the Sun City Community Association page.
