Fitness and well-being is important, especially to those who travel often. Our 100,000-square-foot Health Club provides Resort guests and Club Members with a comprehensive fitness and activity schedule.
Energize in the cardio or free-weight studio, unleash your serve on one of five indoor tennis courts, or make waves with the entire family at the Indoor Water Playground. Need “couple” time? Make arrangements for child care at our fully-licensed daycare facility, the Cub House, enjoy a couples massage at Spa Grand Traverse, and then bask in the sauna.
For questions, please contact the Health Club desk at 231-534-6770.
