It was a very happy birthday for the Tellico Village Wellness Center on October 13th. Over 500 Tellico Villagers celebrated the milestone while enjoying festivities at the 2nd Annual Fall Fest. The glorious day had more than 40 vendors on hand sharing their organizations and social club opportunities at one of the best places to live in Tennessee. The celebration featured live entertainment by the Holloway Sisters, a dunking booth, complimentary lunch from Dixie Pig BBQ and free homemade ice cream, all on a beautiful Fall day overlooking sparkling Tellico Lake with the majestic Great Smoky Mountains in the backdrop.
Real Estate Scorecard has always been impressed with the state-of-the-art Tellico Village Wellness Center, a 27,000 square foot facility with an indoor 6-lane/25 yard heated swimming pool and smaller warm water therapy pool kept 95 degrees, where water aerobics classes take place in the pool almost every day of the year. Its bright and cheery 6,000 square foot exercise room has high vaulted ceilings, sunny windows and dozens of weight and cardio machines, and free weights along with a low impact rubber-padded walking track around the circumference of the fitness room.
The Wellness Center is also equipped with well appointed men’s and women’s locker rooms and dry saunas, as well as a spacious fitness class studio that offers a wide variety of dance and movement classes, yoga, and Tai Chi. Outside the center members have more sports amenities to get their heartbeat up which include 4 Har-Tru tennis courts, 8 pickleball courts and another fitness walking track. The cost of membership is super affordable, at around $30 a month for an individual. The Tellico Village Wellness Center is one of three fitness centers in the village.
