The Tri-City Wellness Center has all the trappings of a first-class gym — a lap pool, a warm-water therapy pool and whirlpool, exercise equipment (treadmills, stair steppers, elliptical trainers, bikes), showers, Jacuzzi, a cushioned walk/jog indoor track and steam rooms.
The center also offers a range of classes, from Zumba to spinning, yoga and body pump.
But the Wellness Center is much more than a gym — it is a medically integrated facility that provides support, education and instruction.
The facility is located at 6250 El Camino Real in Carlsbad.
The focus is not on the treadmill, the equipment or the pool, but the benefits created through the proper use of the various features.
