About
About

This health and wellness facility will provide people of all ages a variety of services and facility offerings to assist in their wellness journey. The Wellness Center's $50 annual membership fee for La Quinta residents ($75 for non-residents) makes it an extremely affordable way to focus on fitness and wellness. This low-cost membership offers access to brand new state-of-the-art fitness equipment for cardio, strength training and flexibility. In fact, the fitness equipment is so advanced, it's the same type of equipment in various Olympic training centers, Camp David, the White House and used by pro sports teams. Day rates are available as well, at $5 per day.

The Wellness Center is being created through a renovation and expansion of the La Quinta Senior Center – adding another 6,000 sq. ft. to the facility's existing 10,000+ sq. feet. In addition to increasing the size, the expansion includes architectural elements and new finishes to update the building's aesthetics – plus large picture windows to open up views over the lake, and public art at the Civic Center Campus. The Wellness Center also introduces a community gardening area, new classrooms and new restrooms with shower and locker areas for men and women.

"The City of La Quinta embraces health and wellness on many levels, and this is just another opportunity for people to get out and get healthy in La Quinta," said Frank Spevacek, City Manager of the City of La Quinta. "Since 2010, we've been a designated Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) city. The HEAL campaign originated from the League of California Cities' efforts to promote healthier lifestyles and communities, and we're proud to have this be such a strong focus in our city, as well."

The Wellness Center will also provide programs for intellectual wellness, such as classes for life-long learning; nutritional wellness, including fresh ingredient cooking demonstrations and nutritional programs; social wellness, such as board games and discussion groups; and creative wellness, including dance, art and language classes.
