Introducing LaPlaya Living Wellness Program

Health-Focused Campaign Kicks Off with Cycling Class Event Overlooking Gulf of Mexico

NAPLES, Fla. (November 14, 2016) – LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, a Noble House Resort located on the idyllic Naples beachfront, is pleased to announce its signature LaPlaya Living program, an initiative targeting guests’ health, happiness, and wellness. Inspired by a recent report from Gallup-Healthways and deeming Naples as the happiest and healthiest city in the United States, LaPlaya Living will kick off the program with a celebratory cycling class on the resort’s lush Gulf Lawn overlooking the white sand beach and stunning Gulf of Mexico. LaPlaya Living will launch additional programming in 2017, including fitness classes, healthy menu items, and enriching activities and experiences to promote positivity and happiness.

“We are thrilled to launch the LaPlaya Living program, which will offer our guests a number of thoughtful amenities, such as healthy dining options, enriching activities, and wellness events,” said LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort’s Managing Director Marco Perry. “Our kickoff cycling class event with Cycle Guroo embodies the vision of this program, as we hope to bring resort visitors and locals together to celebrate health and wellness. We are honored to give back to Bikes for Tykes as we believe fitness practices are influenced at a young age.”

LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort will partner with local studio Cycle Guroo to host the event on December 11 at 10:30 a.m. with proceeds benefitting local nonprofit Bikes for Tykes, Inc. The outdoor cycling class is priced at $35 per person, with a majority of the proceeds going to Bikes for Tykes – a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a bike to those in need in order to empower children, fight childhood obesity, and reduce the environmental impact in Collier County. Since its inception in 1987, Bikes for Tykes has donated more than 20,000 bicycles. Taught by Cycle Guroo’s owner, Charla Goodnight, the class combines performance-driven results, a challenging resistance workout, motivating instruction, and body-pumping jams on top-of-the-line Star Trac Blade Ion bikes. Additionally, Peluso Movers United is sponsoring the event by managing the transport and positioning of the bikes on the Gulf Lawn.

Following the 45-minute high intensity class, guests will enjoy healthy light bites on the Gulf Lawn. Guests can also opt to dine at BALEEN Restaurant for a full brunch experience.
