Step up new year’s resolutions at Ocotillo Village

As the Valley embraces a new year, the Village Health Club & Spa locations continue to inspire healthy lifestyle goals.

For Village members who are looking to step up their workout routine, this January the Ocotillo Village Health Club & Spa is offering members opportunities to put their resolutions into full throttle with personal training programs, spa specials and exciting events.

Ocotillo Village Health Club & Spa is taking 2017’s “New Year, New You” seriously as it continues to create advanced fitness programs and personal training opportunities. Having a personal trainer can help clients develop fitness goals for the new year.

Personal training sessions allow members to focus on their own needs and learn exactly what is necessary to reach their fitness goals. The trainers are schooled in muscle toning, weight management, flexibility, core training, conditioning, pre/postnatal exercise, postrehabilitation, cardiovascular and postphysical therapy fitness to fit all interests and individual needs. Additionally, all Village trainers earned four-year degrees in exercise, science, physiology or kinesiology, along with certifications in personal training that are recognized by the IHRSA (International Health, Racquet & Sports Club Association).

Ocotillo Village Health Club & Spa is also offering a slew of events this month.

Many Ocotillo Village members are preparing for the Rock and Roll Arizona Marathon & Half Marathon set for Jan. 14 and Jan. 15.

TEAMVillage Multisport Group had coach Klas Kuntze said the hard work will be done when race weekend arrives. But it’s important to have little to no stress on race day. To aid with that, he recommends using a checklist for those final steps.

Kuntze’s checklist includes day-before-race tips, such as trying to stay of your feet as much as possible, drinking plenty of fluids, eating a familiar prerace dinner and pack your race-day essentials in a bag before going to bed a little earlier.

On the day of the race, fuel up with your favorite pre-run breakfast, grab your headphone and get pumped up with your favorite music, and grab your race bag. Kuntze also recommended applying sunscreen, and doing a 10- to 15-minute warm up.

Special events at Ocotillo begin on Jan. 12 with Family Night Out from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Members can bring their children to Makutu’s Island, an indoor playground with a pizzeria and arcade, for $12 per child, or nonmembers can participate for $15 per child. The event includes pizza and drinks for the family.

Members who want to spent the start of the new year without the kiddos can take advantage of Parents’ Day Out from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14. Parents can drop off their children, who will enjoy lunch, activities and a movie. Members can participate for $20 and $15 per additional child and single or couple members will be $22 and $18 per additional child.

Kicking off the last Friday of the month, Ocotillo Village will be hosting a Junior Night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, for kids ages 10 to 13. It will be hands-on science night, complete with experiments, inventions and new creations. The Junior Night is free for members and $7 for all guests.

After ramping up your workout routine, it’s important to rest and relax in the Ocotillo Village Spa. Specials include the Tight and Bright Collagen Building Treatment ($120, regularly $150), which is described as the perfect marriage of skin tightening microneedling and a brightening organic mask by Eminence. The microneedling allows skin to produce its own firming collagen while the exfoliating mask reduces fine lines, scarring and pigmentation. The spa is also offering a Chrome Shellac Manicure ($50, regularly $60), during which guests can choose from different colored chrome effect, hologram unicorn dust and color-changing mood gels.
