MIAMI, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Club Med – the original all-inclusive resort company with more than 80 resorts worldwide – introduces a new 360 degree all-inclusive wellness experience at their flagship "premium sports" resort, Sandpiper Bay in Florida, with the launch of a new Active Wellness concept. Since Club Med's origin in the 1950's, sports have been an integral part of the legendary brands' vacation philosophy. Today, Club Med continues to reinforce its positioning as a leader in the industry by keeping a pulse on travel trends, which presently illustrate a more active and health conscious consumer than ever before. With the strength and history that Club Med has in sports and wellness, they have developed yet another innovative idea with the launch of Active Wellness at Sandpiper Bay, just in time to support resolutions to get fit in the new year. From beginners discovering new sports to seasoned athletes looking to train competitively, Sandpiper Bay helps guests discover their potential by focusing on four key elements of personalization, sports, rejuvenation and nutrition. With world class facilities and internationally renowned pro coaches such as Don Law, an award-winning golf instructor and Gabe Jaramillo, former coach of tennis star Andre Agassi, Sandpiper Bay further strengthens its unique sports offerings already in place by piloting the new Active Wellness concept.

To enhance the Active Wellness all-inclusive 360 degree experience at Sandpiper Bay, guests now have the opportunity to add an Active Wellness Boost Package to their vacation through one-day, three-day and six-day programs. With rates starting at $365 per person, these thoroughly personalized packages include a comprehensive consultation upon arrival, specialized fitness training with expert coaches, sport focus on selected discipline, a sensorial L'OCCITANE spa treatment and nutritional guidance for individual needs and goals. The tailored programs allow athletes to reach their potential with three different levels of intensity, Discovery, Standard and Intensive – all providing optimal results when combined with other on-site rejuvenation activities such as Pilates, yoga and meditation.

One-day boost packages allow guests to experience a new way of practicing a sport, while de-stressing and learning the basics of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Three-day packages improve guest's sports performance and refine technique with personalized training designed by world-class coaches while six-day boost packages train guests professionally for competition and are designed to yield measurable, sustainable results that help transform athletes into champions.

With the implementation of the Active Wellness experience at Sandpiper Bay, guests can further enjoy the 216-acre resort tucked into the lush landscape along the St. Lucie River.
