Last but not least, Club fitness team should evaluate the employees wellness program and work with Human Resources to continue to develop programming, activities, events, healthy menu options and incentives to inspire and engage the employees to get more active year-round.

All the preparation which goes in to the event, the workshop or the activity is the result of many department heads working together to deliver a Member experience which is flawless. For example: The club offers a six week wellness luncheon education series with a different speaker and menu each week. The program is targeted to Members which suffer from high blood pressure, hypertension and obesity. The fitness director provides some exercise, the chef prepares the meals, the nutritionist provides the meal plan, the wellness manager selects the speakers, the communication department creates the flyers and sends the text and email invitations and the General Manager emcees the event. Brainstorming with your key department heads will help with buy-in. Have an agenda, keep notes, stay focuced and have fun.|
|Color Wars||Fitness, Golf, Tennis, F&B||Mind, Body, Spirit||Low||staff together to compete in a myriad of athletic and non-athletic events.
What do you get when you mix club members of different ages and skill sets with a slew of activities designed to keep them entertained? Such was the agenda for St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla., which hosted its second annual ÒColor WarÓ this past March. The three-day event featured over 125 members partaking in golf, tennis and fitness competitions, and culminated with a poolside party complete with cocktails and awards. This year, the club aimed to boost participation and include non-athletic members in the activitiesÑa goal that was met with resounding success.
The Goal: Create a varied event agenda to appeal to a maximum number of member skill sets and ages at St. Andrews CC.
St. Andrews CC, Boca Raton, Fla.
The Plan: A three-day ÒColor WarÓ between member teams that includes everything from golf and tennis to singing, and culminates with a party and awards.
The Payoff: Successful execution and promotion led to a 20 percent increase in participation for the second year of the event.
Literally a team effort, the Color War involved staff from all club departments, with department heads serving as group head counselors and managers as specialty counselors. ÒOur employees were teamed up with members to recruit, keep track of scoring and execute three daysÕ worth of logistics for event set-up, all the way through to the awards cocktail party,Ó explains General Manager/COO Craig Martin.
To appeal to a diverse range of members, the event schedule consisted of a varied agenda. ÒOur controller worked with the camp directors to create an incredible spreadsheet that handicapped every event based on member ability and age, affording us a very competitive event open to every member,Ó Martin notes. From junior tennis and golf, to a newly added singing competition, participants had plenty of opportunities to showcase their talentsÑand have a great time.
To help get the word out, the Color War was promoted via posters, flyers, e-blasts, video from last yearÕs event and sign-up boards available in each department and at well-attended related events (for instance, sign-up for the singing competition was held at Karaoke nights and golf registration at major club tournaments).
Even with such proactive planning, this event was not immune to Mother Nature; during the morning of the tennis competition, a thunderstorm postponed the match until the following afternoon. ÒNext year, we will have a written plan to ensure all events can be completed during the three days,Ó notes Martin.
St. Andrews CC, Boca Raton, Fla.
Aside from the minor weather-related setback, this yearÕs Color War went off without a hitch, with a 20 percent increase in participation, including non-members. MartinÕs staff has already met to determine how to do things differently next year, including adding rowing to the fitness competition, hiring paramedics and adding more water coolers in anticipation of hot weather, and the possibility of purchasing bleachers, along with extra tents and umbrellas.
With such positive member feedback, Martin is certain next yearÕs Color War will be a big hit. ÒIt doesnÕt get any better than seeing such a diverse group of ages and interests all happy with one event,Ó he enthusesConsider offering a multi-department challenge i.e. Color Zone where members are invited to play golf, tennis and participate in other club activities like tug-of-war for a weekend, followed up with a member party. Great way to introduce members to one another. The Goal: Create a varied event agenda to appeal to a maximum number of member skill sets and ages at St. Andrews CC.

|Communication||HR||Admin||Medium||Participation and engagement requires constant and consistent communication and support. The difficulty with reaching Private Club employees is most of the staff do not have email addresses so we must rely on Printed material (newsletters, flyers & posters) or Digital means (Social media, text, voice, email, websites). First things first, understand your population to understand what works best. Some like Voice and others like Text and others like Email messages, but most use smart phones.

Likewise it is important for the servers and F&B Staff to know where the ingredients come from. Continue working with the local farms to supply ingredients and invite Members and Staff to join the chef to tour the farms. Expand the Seed-to-Table concept and include the members in a Garden Club. Continuous and ongoing education will make lasting impressions on your Staff and it will better enable them to dialogue with Members. Continue to provide easily digestible pieces of information in the cafeteria e.g. table-top facts and helpful tips and nutritional labels for each item served with notes from the Chef. Rehab one entre per week and explain what you did to reduce the calories, fat and sodium. To take it to the next step, you may want to collaborate with Human Resources to evaluate the current risks and conditions of the Staff population and select topics which would appeal to the certain groups. Invite speakers which address the needs of the masses. Offer incentives to attend. One way to get Staff to participate is to provide healthy prepared meals to-go for their entire family. Member-facing associates should have an intimate knowledge of the menu, preparation method and the nutritional value of each item served just as they have access to Members allergy and dietary needs. Most of this knowledge is provided by the chef and the kitchen staff, whereas the science of nutrition is not part of the on-the-job training and could be offered in more detail in the offseason or with periodic training with a nutritionist, handouts, posters, break-room kiosks, onsite and online education and messaging. Most people do not understand that their health is holistic and involves diet, exercise, stress management, sleep, water and so forth. Unfortunately most information provided by health plans in the form of a newsletter tend to focus on medical procedures, where they should focus on prevention. Enhance the newsletter with prevention and wellness messages. Most people donÕt know what a ÒHealthy DietÓ is and they certainly donÕt know what to buy or how to prepare the food. The purpose of education is to help the employee understand the importance of nutrition so they can make changes in their lives to be more productive, increase morale, be happier and in general improve their lives by changing their behavior.

|Gytronic||Fitness||Body||Medium||Improve Cardiovascular Conditioning:
In water your heart rate is lower allowing you to work harder when compared to exercising on land. You can easily incorporate interval training and increase the intensity of your workout.
Did you know that water aerobics can burn up as many calories as land aerobics.
Improved Flexibility and Balance:
The reduced effect of gravitational force in water leads to improved flexibility in the body. The joints can be moved through a wide range of motion, without stress on the joints. Because of the properties of water, if you are suffering any type of limitations such as arthritis, back, knee, shoulder or joint pain, working out in the pool is very beneficial and most important it is a lot of fun. If a class does not suit your needs, a variety of personal training options are available.
Water Wellness Training :
The pool is a great tool to improve your gait, balance and flexibility. By walking in the water and incorporating balance and flexibility at the same time.
Aquatic After Care:
Post rehabilitation for knee, back or shoulder issues, exercises in the pool can be very beneficial without putting stress on the joints.

|Incorporate Wellness in the Strategic Plan||Member||Admin||Low||When we talk about Vision and the Members, we are referring to the Member experience which is based on the facility, the amenities, availability of programs, the integration of nutrition and fitness and most importantly club usage i.e. participation and engagement. The success of which is the result of collaboration of the executive management team, committees, the fitness director, culinary, food & beverage and Membership. And based on the results of hundreds of interviews with private clubs, we see less than 5% have a written and approved strategic wellness plan in place. In the Private Club industry very few initiatives including wellness programs get funded without board level support or approval. And more often than not, a budget and plan is very helpful in the approval process. That said, every good leader should be prepared to present a wellness plan for two audiences; first to the board and second to the department heads. While some leaders create the strategy then Òsell itÓ to the department heads and others take a more collaborative approach where the team is intimately involved in the development of the plan. Either way, a strategy or vision is essential to get Òbuy-inÓ. The Wellness Strategy should look ahead from 12-36 months and address cost reductions from Staff related initiatives as well as Member usage and revenue producing programs. The plan should focus on measuring key performance indicators and metrics which measure participation and return on investment ratios.|

She then suggested expanding the concept into a workshop that touted benefits including improved mood, an effective abdominal workout, stress release, and connecting students with their Òtrue selves.Ó
ÒA lot of our yoga instructors are very involved in their practice and [want to] expand it and get more people involved,Ó says Fitness Director Robyn Evans.

Mindful Life Academy isn't your ordinary Fitness Program. Our goal is truly the whole individual and when we say Mind-Body-Spirit we mean it. We teach a unique format to individuals and groups that include 5 practices towards a healthy, happy and prosperous way of living.
Mindful Eating - Learn the proper fundamentals of good nutrition, how to eat consciously, and what it really means to say "you are what you eat". Even if you eat well, we may still be able to help with ideas on supplementation and new food choices.
True Cardio Fitness - Allow us to educate you on effective and efficient cardiovascular exercise when it comes to your own individual health. We'll teach you the best time, the best way and the proper amount. Whether you're an elite or novice athlete, someone just looking to maintain a healthy heart or an individual with potential or pre-existing cardiovascular disease. We can show you the smartest and healthiest way to get your heart in shape.
Strength Training - Our concept for this is easy... An education in Natural Fitness Training (NFT) is what we call it and it's all about maintaining proper muscular balance within the body by learning to sustain your own body weight. We combine Suspension Training, Resistance Bands, and much more to give you a controlled workout that's extremely effective for building lean muscle mass the right way.
Yoga & Flexibility - We'll teach you the true meaning of yoga and guide you through the most effective asanas (poses) that work for you. Beyond that, we offer assisted stretching routines and foam rolling techniques for deeper myofascial release of stubborn, tight muscles.
Meditation & Breathing Techniques - We take the voodoo out of this ancient practice and bring the science to the forefront. We teach individuals and small groups how powerful and easy a solid meditation practice can be to relieve anxiety & stress. We'll educate you on breathing techniques that can help with reducing blood pressure, depression, and even anxiety disorders, all while helping to develop better coping skills in everyday life.

|Muscle Activation||Fitness||Body||Low||Did you ever notice that muscle tightness and soreness does not go away in spite of all the things you do to stay flexible?
In recent years, a revolutionary new process has evolved for correcting muscular imbalances in the body. It has dramatically improved functional capabilities in people of all ages, providing a pain free lifestyle. This process is a biomechanically-based system called Muscle Activation Techniques.
What is Muscle Activation Technique ª and how it can help me?
Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) ª is aimed at restoring balance at joints. According to MAT, pain and stiffness are symptoms of unstable joints. In order to restore balance at joints, a MAT specialist follows five steps; comparative assessment of joint range of motion (ROM), muscular response test, treatment to restore muscle strength, retest muscular response and reassessment of joint range of motion.
Muscle Activation Techniques are beneficial for:
Loss of mobility
Post surgical recovery
Range of Motion
Reverse the Aging Process with Muscle Activation Techniqueª (MAT)
Muscle soreness is a symptom that the body is overworking to maintain structural stability. Weak muscles can cause other muscles to over work. This can cause pain and inflammations as they struggle to maintain joint stability and over time will decrease range of motion. MAT can slow down or even reverse degenerative processes. Arthritic conditions due to joint instability and wear & tear can be helped or prevented when muscles function properly. MAT creates a stronger connection between the brain and the muscular system so balance is restored and the ability for the body to function is greatly improved. With MAT, you can return to the golf course, tennis court, or your daily activities with renewed strength and without pain. MAT therapy enables you a new lease on your active lifestyle.

Give your team insights into better ways to communicate, understand each other, and inspire change.Hiring, Selecting, and Onboarding
The cost of a bad-hire can equal up to 30% of the annual salary of a position (according to the US Labor Board). Other sources quote multiples of 5X or 10X salary! An accurate fit-gap analysis ensures you will select candidates who are the best fit for the role, work environment, and company culture. It allows managers to determine the best way to coach, train, and properly onboard specific employees so they will hit the ground running. Engaging and Retaining
This compounded effect of poor self-awareness leads to poor management, which ultimately results in disengaged employees. Being self-aware, or knowing your native code, is the first step towards ensuring employees are being managed correctly. Developing Teams
Celebration of workplace diversity empowers team members to focus on what makes themselves great without being bogged down with awkward interactions and miscommunication. When you understand what's causing someone to behave a certain way, you are more accepting of your differences and you can focus on the things that really matter; like driving your business.

|Wellness Plan||HR||admin||Medium||More and more, workplace wellness is all about the numbers Ñ with 83% of large and mid-size US employers offering incentives for participation in data-gathering activities like health risk assessments or biometric screenings, and 58% planning to impose consequences for non-compliance.1 Desperate to justify their wellness programs with a positive ROI, employers are resorting to big carrots and sticks to drive participation and results.When we talk about creating a Wellness Plan we are referring to a 12-36 month plan which is focused on behavior modification over time and segmented by population. And because of HIPAA regulations, it is very difficult to address specific populations one-on-one. So, it is important to inspire and engage as many of the associates using a multi-faceted approach which begins with a Health Risk Assessment followed by incentives, ongoing challenges, club sponsored team building activities, family programs, education, technology and lots of targeted communication. It may take several sessions for a smoker to quit completely or many months for an associate with a chronic condition to get healthy, but in the end itÕs worth it. The club does not have a written and approved wellness strategy which makes it challenging to align other department heads to support the vision. Incentivize everyone to complete the Health Risk Assessment which will provide a better understanding of the ÒpopulationsÓ risks and conditions. Then select speakers and topics which address the masses to maximize participation in club sponsored events, activities, education and challenges. Next, provide the employee with a dashboard which allows them to see how well they are doing in the challenges, review their point-balance, review their goals, log their foods and activities and have access to prescriptive resources. The portal should integrate the results of the Health Risk Assessment and provide standard reporting. We recommend using the PureWellness portal which also includes an integrated health coaching module|
|Wellness Portal||Fitness, F&B, Golf, HR, Leadership, Tennis||admin||Medium||For decades, the fitness/wellness operators and Human Resource Managers have been using online wellness tracking tools. Wellness Portals allow the trainer/health coach to better understand the users which in-turn increases revenue, improves customer loyalty, reduces attrition and cuts costs.
Before you search for a vendor ask yourself a few questions as they pertain to the clubÕs vision, mission statement, expectations, adoption, cost/benefits, impact on personnel, training requirements and measurement/metrics. If you believe technology is part of the club culture, then a Wellness Portal is a great tool as long as you have trained personnel in place to manage the process and measure the results of both members and staff.
Wellness Portals require ongoing effort from both the user, the coach and the administrator, to insure the data is accurate, actionable and relevant. Users must update their data and follow the protocol established by the trainer/coach to justify the effort. Recommendation to implement a Wellness Portal will likely come from either the HR or Fitness Director. Approval will likely require committee/board and leadership approval due to the costs involved. Most common response from club managers: ÒI know my members!Ó.
A Wellness Portal is both a resource and a data repository for both memberÕs and staff. The system collects data, organizes the data into meaningful and actionable bites and provides management reports that helps foster collaboration among the department heads. From the initial assessment to the individuals own personal achievement, the system provides a tool to help the individual to achieve their personal health goals and the club leadership a tool to help improve the member experience. Club has engaged the Humana Vitality rewards program that includes measurements and tests to earn points e.g. BMI, Glucose, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol. Fitness goals, healthly living Activity and EducationTo further increase usage and participation from new and existing members we recommend implementing an integrated, personalized and prescriptive wellness portal which includes; a personalized dashboard, Health Risk Assessment, a health coaching module, meal planning, exercise plans, online workshops and prescriptive to-do lists. This tool will enhance the year-round relationship between trainer and member, increases revenues but more importantly provide a mechanism which consolidates the clubs content and programming on a single platform, which in-turn, provides a more personalized member experience. This tool will help to increase other wellness services i.e. Nutritional Counseling, Health Coaching, Physical Therapy, Chiropractors etc. Member usage increases as programs and activities are integrated or bundled to provide a more holistic solution. Having the technology to manage the data from different departments makes it much easier to collaborate and share which in turn makes it a better Member experience. With that said, the club should invest in software solutions that provide the Member with a dashboard which integrates activity with Fitness planners, meal planning, food and fitness logs, points and rewards trackers and integrated health coaching. There are tools on the market which do all this and more. The Wellness tools provide a prescriptive solution for new Member orientations, existing Members looking for a comprehensive ÒpackageÓ and everyone in between. Members that use the dashboard are more likely to stay connected to the club throughout the year.

Wellness portals are a great way to engage first time fitness users, increase personal training revenue and better undeerstand what is relevnt to the members. Utilize the online wellness portal which includes phone apps to increase participation in challenges, education and activities.Every employer, whether they are self-insured or not, has access to free wellness portal software for the insured. Most of which include a Health Risk Assessment and prescriptive tools which help to change behavior for the employee. The most robust of tools offer integrated health coaching modules, meal planning, fitness programming, points based rewards trackers, challenges and other engagement tools. Your insurance provider offers a free solution but it does not integrate the HRA, nor does it provide the tools to manage incentives, challenges and activities. When we talk about Execution we are referring to the actual participation and engagement of the associates. And to fully understand the various populations, the club must have a centralized system from which to collect the proper data, evaluate and measure. Your Health Plan offers a free wellness portal but unfortunately it does not offer the ability to integrate the results of the HRA, manage challenges and incentives, and most importantly it does not offer an integration of smart phone apps. St. Andrews has selected the Prevo Turnkey Wellness Program which includes a wellness platform that is personalized and prescriptive and includes an integrated health coaching interface.|

|Tee It Up ThursdayÕ||Fitness, Golf||Body, Sprit||Low||ÒI sent out personal invitations to a number of our female members to join me for a ÔTee It Up ThursdayÕ program we were starting,Ó Buntin said. ÒWe ended up with 20 ladies, and we spend the first part of every session on rules, etiquette and the ÔlingoÕ of golf. Then thereÕs an hour of instruction, a break for some smoothies or a little exercise, and then we go out on the course in threesomes on a short-course setup.
ÒWe donÕt concentrate on score,Ó Buntin says about this part of the program. ÒThey can tee it up in the fairway, but weÕll play some kind of fun game, like greens in regulation, up-and- downs, or putts, but itÕs never about the total score.
ÒThe whole thing has been a home run,Ó Buntin continues. ÒWeÕre up to around 25 ladies on Thursdays, and a lot of the women who were playing at the semi-private course have come back to the private course because theyÕve heard about this.
ÒAnd believe it or not, the husbands have complimented me for doing this even more than the ladies. Several told me that because their wives are now playing, theyÕve changed their mind about downgrading from their golf membership. WeÕve actually had to bring on another instructor for the program. I call it a retention clinic.Ó
|Ladies Fun League||Fitness, Golf||Body, Sprit||Low||To ramp up the enjoyment factor, Stevenson started a Ladies Fun League, which runs on Thursdays for four to six weeks in June and usually features a three-hole loop, interrupted briefly for a Òfairway drink,Ó and culminating with most of the ladies joining other club members at the weekly ÒThirsty ThursdayÓ get-together in the clubhouse. With more women playing now, Stevenson plans to initiate a Family Golf series in August.
ÒItÕs been a good player development program for us,Ó Stevenson says. ÒIt brings in ladies that we never used to see at the club. And, when the ladies start playing, they always buy golf shoes, so thatÕs good for the pro shop.Ó
Nearby at The Club at Savannah Harbor, Club Manager and Director of Golf Operations Dana Schultz, PGA, reports that the clubÕs Ladies and Legends program has attracted approximately 50 new female participants this year alone. The one-hour program of instruction on Saturday mornings costs just $20, and club members, non-members or resort guests who need clubs use free Callaway rental sets. The Ladies and Legends program has been so well-received, Schultz is starting a Ladies Golf 101 program for beginners that could also be used as a corporate team-building offering for groups staying at the resort.
Short and Sweet
Staying with the motif of keep it brief, make it fun and mix in some refreshments, Director of Golf Jim Schultz, PGA, has developed a 3-Hole League for women at the Oneida Golf & Country Club in Green Bay, Wis. The program, designed to appeal to both the clubÕs female tennis players who didnÕt previously play golf, as well as former women golfers who left the game due to work or family obligations, features 90-minute sessions weekly, one on Tuesday evenings and one on Wednesday mornings.
ÒOne of my assistants and I go out with them, and we make it fun, including a mimosa stop at one of our tiki bars,Ó Schultz says. ÒItÕs been a really good program for both beginners and returners, plus we had a demo day and sold two sets of clubs and have several more on appointment. ItÕs also been a good feeder program for our 18-hole ladies program.Ó
|Magical Mystery tour||Fitness, Golf||Body, Sprit||Low||Another message that resonates when talking with clubs that offer successful womenÕs programs is that women, who may rightfully feel they have taken a back seat to men in terms of course access or attention from the professional staff, truly appreciate it when club or resort professionals do something special for them. One example is what Neil Maurer, PGA, Head Golf Professional at Bear Trap Dunes in Ocean View, Del., calls ÒThe Magical Mystery Tour.Ó Maurer, who admits he stole the idea from a Philadelphia-area club where he previously worked, puts together a group of 20 female club members to join him and three of his assistants on a bus ride to another area club for a day of golf, lunch or dinner at the host club, and wine and dessert on the bus ride back to Bear Trap Dunes. The ladies donÕt know where theyÕre goingÑhence the Òmystery,Ó a theme reinforced by Beatles tapes that Maurer plays on the bus.Maurer doesnÕt hold the ÒtourÓ to raise moneyÑthe golf is donated by the host club, and the women pay anywhere between $50 and $100 for the outing, to cover the bus and the meal at the host club. The golf game itself is what Maurer terms Òsemi-competitive,Ó with more emphasis on fun and camaraderie than on victory or prizes. ÒWe have one [tour] scheduled for July and weÕll probably do another later in the year,Ó Maurer says. ÒI think two a year is probably tops. The women really appreciate it, especially since I donÕt do it for the menÑalthough a lot of the men have told me they wish I would.Ó Bear Trap DunesÕ ÒMagical Mystery TourÓ seems to have all of the traits of a successful womenÕs golf program: It Òde-mystifiesÓ the golf experience, offers women a chance to get out on the course with friends in an enjoyable and not overly competitive environment, and ends with some pleasant memories, a refreshing beverage and a good meal. ItÕs not hard to see how to many women, that can all sound like a great offer to Òtake you awayÓ on an experience worth trying, and that can lead to many more trips down the same road.|

Palo Alto Hills G&CC, Palo Alto, Calif.
The Plan: Promote ÒGolf InfusionÓ programs that create a cohesive, integrated golf experience through all areas of the club.
The Payoff: Successful efforts to tie other areas to golf keeps members engaged whose primary focus is still on the game. Fitness SeriesÑThe new fitness facility now offers TRX for golfers, as well as golf-specific training that includes Dynamic Balance System Swing Analysis and Golf Conditioning Boot Camp. The latter entails small group training series with intensive sessions to improve power, posture, swing speed and mechanics through dynamic, golf-specific exercises that are designed to help players achieve greater distance, control and consistency on the course.
Group Fitness ClassesÑClasses such as Yoga for Golfers and Gentle Stretch for Golfers are now offered, to help with flexibility, mental focus, balance and core strength.

|Pickleball||Fitness, Tennis||Body, Sprit||Low||Sun Lakes Country Club, Banning, Calif., offers a relatively new sport called pickleball. According to the USA Pickleball Association, it was named after Pickles, the cocker spaniel of the gameÕs founders who Òused to chase stray balls and then hide in the bushes.Ó
Pickleball is played on a badminton court with the net 36 inches high at each end and lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a wiffle ball), and wood or composite paddles. It can be picked up by beginners and becomes competitive for enthusiasts.
About six Sun Lakes members play regularly, but no organized group has been established yet. Seeing as how the game was invented in Apple Valley, Minn., a mere 22 years ago, though, thereÕs plenty of time for the club to catch up to The Villages, an active adult community in Sumter County, Fla., that has 150 outdoor Pickleball courts and approximately 2,000 players (prompting Masters Athlete magazine to dub it ÒPickleball ParadiseÓ last year).
|Kids Passport Program||Fitness, Golf, Tennis, F&B||Body, Sprit||Low||Twenty-five stamps will get you a free kids meal. Fifty will get you 25% off one bill in the dining room. Seventy-five will get you 25 free gaming tickets for the annual Labor Day Party.Ê And the few who achieve the coveted 100-stamp mark will be invited to a private pizza party at the pool.
ÒItÕs pretty tough to earn 100 stamps,Ó says Jake Hawley, Executive Chef, and creator of the Lafayette ClubÕs Youth Passport Program, a spin-off idea based on the National Park ServiceÕs ÒPassport To Your National Parks.Ó Through the program, the Lafayette Club, in Minnetonka Beach, Minn., has encouraged kids to participate in the clubÕs various activities by having them earn stamps for each activity they complete.
THE GOAL:To get kidsÑand subsequently parentsÑto explore all parts of the club, attend more club-hosted events and increase member usage.THE PLAN:The Lafayette Club created a Youth Passport Program that encourages kids to participate in various club events. If they participate, they earn a stamp which gets them one step closer to prizes and savings for the family.
THE PAYOFF: More families participated in club events, and children became more active in the club.
For example, kids can earn a stamp for being well-mannered in the dining room, or for bringing their report card to the club and showing it to a manager. Two stamps can be earned for taking a swimming lesson or attending ÒDive-In-MovieÓ Night, three if they have their birthday party at the pool, and four for joining a summer sports event at the club.
ÒThe parents have started to get involved in helping the kids get stamps,Ó says Hawley. ÒThe kids would ask to come to the club for various events that would earn points for their passports. Ultimately, itÕs helped increase member usage overall.Ó
The real fun comes when the kiddos collect their rubber stamps. Much like an international passport, the rubber stamps have become a great show-and-tell opportunity.
ÒThere were some kids who would report to me, weekly, about how many stamps they earned,Ó says Hawley. ÒIt was great to see that kind of passion about the club.Ó

Share this article:
ÒThe Arena,Ó a free-roam, warehouse-scale, multi-player VR gaming attraction that covers more than 2,200 sq. ft., has been installed at the resort operatorÕs Wisconsin Dells, Wis. and Pocono Mountains, Pa. properties. Participants ages 13 and older pay $25 for either the ÒZombie SurvivalÓ or ÒEngineeriumÓ 15-minute experiences.
ÊKalahari Resorts and Conventions has introduced ÒThe Arena,Ó which it describes as Òa one-of-a-kind, interactive, virtual-reality experience that is more than just a video game,Ó at its Wisconsin Dells, Wis. and Pocono Mountains, Pa. resorts. Those properties are only the second and third locations in the country to offer the attraction, according to Kalahari.
The Arena is the only free-roam, warehouse-scale, multiplayer, virtual-reality gaming experience currently on the market, according to Kalahari. Multiplayer adventures allow up to six people to simultaneously explore, conquer and challenge one another for high scores and skill evaluations, all tracking in real time. The attraction spans more than 2,200 sq. ft.
Participants in The Arena are transported into a digital realm, to take on an entirely new identity and experience ever-changing surroundings in a computer-generated landscape.
The Arena features two 15-minute games for participants, who must be 13 years of age or older, to choose from, including:
ÒZombie Survival,Ó an intense, undead-themed experience in which players are caught in a zombie outbreak and need to destroy the undead crowds while they wait for help to arrive. Players are trapped and bunkered in a fort, amidst the chaos brought on by a zombie outbreak. A rescue team is on its way, but the players must defend the fort until help arrives. The team must fend off a wave of zombies and rebuild barriers to protect themselves. Teams switch among a range of futuristic weapons and virtual battle tools to help with survival.
ÒEngineerium,Ó a family-friendly puzzle game and walking adventure set on a fantastical ancient alien world that lets players walk up and down ramps and twisty, curvy walls, defying gravity. Players are suspended above an ocean, where gravity does not function as expected. Teams must walk among flying whales and parrot rays and connect the platforms to progress through the puzzle. Colorful characters and bright, friendly music accompany participants on the journey.
ÒKalahari continuously seeks the best and newest technologies to raise the bar for guest experiences,Ó said Cary Brandt, Corporate Creative Director, Entertainment, for Kalahari Resorts. ÒThe Arena is truly a unique virtual-reality attraction that is the perfect addition to our all-under-one-roof offerings for groups.Ó
The attraction is open to the general public, as well as resort guests, for $25. Time slots can be booked online.

Group rates and special workshops are also available for the trapeze amenity, which The Phoenician will also actively market to its meeting-business clientele as an especially unique team-building and bonding opportunity. The resort is also holding trapeze shows that are open to the public, as part of a new extended outreach effort that includes street fairs and free guided nighttime tours of its 250-variety cactus garden.

|Culinary Cocktails||The 2017 Culinary & Cocktails Trend Forecast, compiled by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, cites five leading cocktail trends for 2017 that could be incorporated into bar menus and drink specials. While not a scientific study, KimptonÕs research is based on data and information from more than 70 properties in over 30 U.S. cities. (The forecastÕs findings were uncovered via an extensive survey of chefs, sommeliers, general managers and bartenders.)
ÒWhen it comes to culinary trends, Kimpton chefs and bartenders are on the hunt for the flavors and techniques that tantalize taste buds and expand dinersÕ culinary universe,Ó says Alex Taylor, KimptonÕs Senior Vice President of Restaurants & Bars. ÒThese are the most creative and cutting-edge concepts that will pepper menus in the coming year.Ó
According to the forecast, cocktail enthusiasts can expect to see the following trends come to life in 2017:
Adding a culinary twist to classic cocktails, with unique ingredients like roasted grapes, salt-roasted plantains, smoked tomato water, pured red pepper, snap peas, corn, or even pickling brine, to create either sweet or savory culinary cocktails
South American-inspired cocktails, like a Caipirinha using mezcal, cachaa, jalapeo-infused cachaa, serrano chili syrup or pisco
Fat-washing cocktails, with alternative, non-meat-based fats like milk, coconut and peanut butter
Wine and cheese remain the top food-and-drink pairing, but fresh new combinations like oysters and gin or sherry and fries will emerge as chefs and bartenders collaborate more on tasting menus and small plates
Signature cocktails developed out of fermented beverages, like Kombucha, ginger beer and coconut kefir, will lead to creations like a cranberry-and-tangerine Kombucha cocktail

|Mental Wellness||Mental wellness will be the biggest future trend, period: from wellness destinations bringing in neuroscientists and psychotherapists - to meditation becoming seriously mainstream, while evolving into new breeds Ð to part-mind, part-body workout brands Ð to apps that track your mental state. Due to increasing levels of stress as well as a greater understanding of brain science, the proper relationship between mind/ body is getting clearer. With an alarming mental wellness crisis (spiking depression, anxiety, etc.), wellness retreats, spas, fitness studios, schools, workplaces and governments will step up Òhealthy mindÓ programmingÉin 2017 and beyond. A massively bigger focus on mental wellness Ð whether in new programming at hotels, wellness retreats and spas or schools and workplaces Ð was an uber-trend identified by Summit experts. The mounting crisis was laid out. Global economist, Thierry Malleret, explained how, despite our era of historic economic abundance, depression, anxiety disorders, loneliness, addiction and suicide is skyrocketing. So much so that the World Health Organization has forecast that by 2030 the largest health risk on earth will be depression (not obesity). Leading integrative medical experts, like Dr. Elke Benedetto-Reisch and Nils Behrens (Lanserhof Group); Drs. Harry and Imke Koenig (BrennerÕs Park Hotel & Spa); and Dr. Christine Stossier (VIVAMAYR Medical Clinic) outlined the serious new problems theyÕre seeing: from Òtotal burnoutÓ to exploding disorders around stress and the ÒgutÓ - with agreement that traditional medicine tends not to see the whole
(emotional) patient, or act on evidence that the mind influences every cell in the body. They argued that the wellness industry must zero in on teaching people Òthe discipline of living againÓ: to restore day and night, work and rest, learn the connection between bad food and bad mood, and the (painful) discipline of digitally disconnecting. (Notably, the first Summit award for a leader in mental wellness (the Debra Simon Award) went to Jeremy McCarthy, director of spa & wellness for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and author of The Psychology of Spas & Wellbeing, for his work in bringing the power of positive psychology to the attention of the spa industry.)
Governments will recognize that a focus on mental wellbeing and happiness is an important key to turning around declining productivity and rising social instability. For instance, JanEmmanuel De Neve (economics professor, Oxford University; co-editor of the UNÕs World Happiness
