6 Ways to Achieve a Healthy Retreat on the Grand Strand
While it can be easy to set aside your healthy habits when taking a vacation - which is perfectly acceptable, of course, since giving yourself a break from the usual routine is one of the keys to a revitalizing getaway - on the Grand Strand, there are also plenty of opportunities for those looking to stay the course to maintain a healthful lifestyle.
If you’re determined to avoid too many splurges and maintain your good health habits during a getaway at The Strand Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, consider these great health & fitness-related resources found within easy reach on the Grand Strand:
On-site fitness center: First, for guests staying at The Strand Resort, our on-property fitness center offers a treadmill, a stationary bike, a universal gym and more - so you don’t have to leave the premises to work up a sweat and get a great workout!
Cinzia Spa: Treat yourself to some well-deserved vacation relaxation and pampering at Cinzia Spa, where guests can choose from a long list of massage varieties including Swedish massages, deep-tissue massages, aromatherapy massages or a hybrid of all three. Other mood-boosting options at the 17,000-square-foot well-being oasis include facials, body treatments, manicures and pedicures.
Yoga: For those who like to nurture their bodies and souls on the mat, there are plenty of yoga-studio options in the Myrtle Beach area. Among them, The Market Common’s Yoga in Common offers a range of classes geared toward yoga veterans and newcomers alike. Looking to put a truly Grand Strand spin on your yoga session? Jack’s Surf Lessons offers SUP Yoga sessions in conjunction with Yoga in Common - so you can grab a few zen moments while floating atop the local waters on a paddleboard.
