Savannah, GA (Jan. 12, 2015) - The Landings Club on Skidaway Island in Savannah, Georgia has been named one of America’s Healthiest Clubs by Prevo Health Solutions.
The private Club (part of The Landings community on Skidaway Island) known for its six championship golf courses, 33-court tennis facilities and 50,000 square foot fitness and wellness center, ranked fifth on the list of America's Healthiest Clubs in 2014 based on a comprehensive evaluation of over 150 measures. The Club's Life Extension And Fulfillment (LEAF) program focuses on all aspects of well-being and offers members programs, seminars and opportunities that promote physical, spiritual, intellectual and emotional health, vitality and growth.
"We are a golf club with a focus on mind-body wellness and life extension," says Executive Director Steven Freund. "Everything we do here- from the locally sourced organic food served at our seven restaurants to our LEAF program- is done to make members' lives healthier and more robust. We offer an active lifestyle and amenities to help members of all ages grow in health and vitality."
To achieve the America's Healthiest Club distinction, The Landings Club participated in a detailed on-site evaluation executed by Prevo Health Solutions. The Club was evaluated across five equally rated categories: fitness, nutrition, staff, members and facilities. Each category is comprised of multiple questions with certain responses valued as more important. A health score of 800-plus qualifies a club as one of America's Healthiest Clubs, a distinguished third party validation and recognition for achieving a healthy environment. The Club also received a detailed written evaluation and best-practices in the form of a Health Report™ that serves as a playbook for current and future wellness strategies.
"As we move into 2015 and beyond, we are extending our wellness focus to our employees and their families to ensure we are promoting health across the board," added Freund. "We are in a prime position to help our members and employees stay active, happy and fit for life."
