Colorado Springs, CO --The Country Club of Colorado (CCOC) at Cheyenne Mountain Resort is undergoing a $3 million makeover to elevate the guest experience. The project includes the addition of a new, six-room resort spa and expanded fitness facilities. Once completed in mid-2015, the CCOC at Cheyenne Mountain Resort will emerge as one of Colorado's most expansive lifestyle recreational centers exclusively available to members and guests.
The CCOC at Cheyenne Mountain currently features a recreational clubhouse, golf clubhouse and aquatics center. As part of the $3 million project, the club's existing fitness facility will be relocated within the building to boost the size of the facility to 9,000-square-feet.
The expanded center will feature a main, two-tier workout room with state of the art Life Fitness cardio and fitness equipment, free weights, treadmills, elliptical and stair machines, recumbent and upright bikes, a group exercise floor and two training/studio rooms for class instruction like Yoga and Zumba. The facility will also feature a new juice bar, a private outdoor lounging patio, and full-service men’s and women’s locker rooms. The club expects to complete the fitness center by early March.
Creating the fitness center will free up space for construction of a new 5,000-square-foot spa. The new facility will be housed on the first-floor of the fitness center and will feature six treatment rooms, manicure and pedicure stations, a private reception lobby and indoor and outdoor meditation and relaxation suites. The spa will offer guests an authentic Colorado spa experience complete with indigenous treatments, facials, nail services, signature packages and retail products. The spa will be open to club members, resort guests and local residents. The spa is targeted for completion in May.
The fitness center and spa are part of $10 million in improvements at the country club since 2012, which include renovations to the golf course and golf clubhouse. "The renovation and expansion project is reflective of our continued commitment to give members and guests access to an unrivaled lineup of year-round activities," said Cathy Matthews-Kane, club general manager. "Our goal is to offer convenient access to a diverse and expansive recreational lifestyle that inspires members and guests to be healthy, stay active and have some fun in the process."
