Piedmont Fayette, Pace Lynch Corporation and Pinewood Forrest are teaming up to launch a medically integrated wellness center in the heart of the Pinewood Forrest community with the announcement of the Piedmont Fayette Wellness Center at Pinewood Forrest.
“A wellness center is different from a gym or a fitness center because it offers programs that are tracked and overseen by medical professionals,” said Michael Burnett, Piedmont Fayette’s Chief Executive Officer. “The environment offers clinical integration so that physical therapists and exercise physiologists share common space.”
The 60,000 square foot, two-story facility will create a culture of health and wellness, supporting the healthy lifestyle goals of the community and acting as a bridge between medical care and wellness. Piedmont Fayette understands that “mobility is medicine” and people who are active and healthy tend notto have the chronic health conditions that can bring about even more serious medical issues. A wellness center is a facility focused on providing preventive medicine solutions.
In addition to the six-lane lap pooland therapy pool, there will be multiple fitness studios, an active gaming component, a spin room and 18,000 square feet of fitness space on two floors. Another pinnacle feature is the licensed D1 Sports Training program, the first in the state of Georgia, offering specific sports training for athletes from youth to professional level with dedicated space for indoor and outdoor fitness training. The Wellness Center will engage with the outdoors outside a wall of glass, connecting with a central park, open air elevated exercise platform, activity lawns, and over 15 miles of integrated trail and path systems that meander throughout the community and nature preserve areas.
“This will be the first time that Piedmont has integrated a health and wellness location within a residential community,” said Burnett. “We believe this innovative facility will not only be a gold standard fitness facility for people of all ages and abilities, but will also be the best way to deliver preventive medicine and healthcare solutions for a community focused on wellness and living better.”
Pinewood Forrest is a 234-acre master planned residential and mixed-use development located in south metro Atlanta. Memberships to the Piedmont Fayette Wellness Center at Pinewood Forrest will be open to the public with access to the outpatient rehab/healthcare services by appointment. Although details are not final, Pinewood Forrest anticipates bundling a membership to the wellness center with a home purchase.
