POOLER, GA (July 31, 2015) – The Savannah Quarters master-planned community opened its new 4,000-square-foot fitness center in a gala event on the evening Thursday, July 30, equipped with more than 40 of the latest, state-of-the-art pieces of exercise equipment.
Within the new facility, fitness-minded Savannah Quarters residents will find in addition to the fitness room, a spacious aerobics room with group fitness classes and spin classes; two spa treatment rooms; an outdoor patio with a Jacuzzi for relaxing; and men’s and women’s showers, lockers and bathrooms.
The fitness center boasts the latest Matrix line of fitness equipment that includes treadmills, ellipticals, ascent trainer, upright and hybrid cycles, and a variety of weight-training equipment. A highlight of the equipment is the Matrix IC7 Indoor Cycle that is the first to use “Coach by Color” technology that displays both watt rate (power output) and heart rate with five color zones displayed on a computerized screen to help users hit their training goals.
Each of the indoor cycles at the Savannah Quarters center is outfitted with a computer that gives the rider immediate feedback and real-time values to observe, such as RPMs, level of resistance, watt rate, heart rate and calories burned. In addition, the center utilizes the virtual MyRide Console that allows a rider to choose high-definition, on-demand video displays and audio of 140 scenic routes from around the world. Riders can also choose a virtual-coaching option on the bikes to help guide their workouts.
