Broken Sound Club Championed Global Wellness Day In Boca Raton


To encourage health-full living & lifestyle choices

Consistent with its Club and community emphasis on health-full living, recreation, and general well-being, Broken Sound Club (BSC) — a 5-Star Platinum Club of America and home to BSC’s award-winning and LEED® certified Moonstone Spa and Fitness Center – championed the Global Wellness Day (GWD) initiative in and around Boca Raton in countdown to and during the international GWD observance on Saturday, June 13th. According to its founder, the annual GWD was launched in Turkey three years ago as the first-ever internationally designated day dedicated to wellness and now spans several countries and US cities as a worldwide non-profit making social movement created by volunteers dedicated to living well. Created to be a collaboration of lifestyle-focused organizations, wellness coaches and exercise and spa professionals, the official day connects and inspires fitness, healthful eating, inner health and spiritual well-being, the purpose of this annual day is to make everyone aware of the value of our lives. To showcase Boca Raton’s embrace of personal and community wellness on June 13th, Broken Sound Club invited the public to participate in its social media campaign and a free community GWD event that it hosted at the Waterstone Resort & Marina. The day featured early morning on-the-waterfront exercise and Zumba classes, chefs’ demos on ‘health-full eating tips and tastes’ showcased by BSC Executive Chef Joe Longo and WRM Executive Chef Matt Mixon, complimentary poolside massages by BSC’s Moonstone Spa professionals, preventative medicine info and health screening services offered by Boca Raton Regional Hospital plus ‘mind-ful tuning’ tips for mental wellness by Boca Raton’s Promise and more. In countdown to the one-day ‘health for happy’ GWD event, Broken Sound Club secured a GWD Proclamation from the City of Boca Raton and formed a team of its fitness, spa, lifestyle, recreation and culinary leadership to offer a ‘road show’ for wellness visits. Belgin Aksoy, GWD founder and Richmond International creative director shared that “Global Wellness Day is meant to be a journey of self-discovery during which participants can find they can change ‘every day’ of their life. The fundamental purpose of the day is to make us aware of the value our lives. Even if it’s just one day a year, to make us stop and think, to get away from the stress of city living and our bad habits, and thereby find peace within.” “Serving as the primary champion of the Global Wellness Day social movement for the Boca Raton community has been a natural fit for us as is evident in all we do and stand for at Broken Sound Club as a leading steward of healthy living,” noted John Crean, CCE, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at Broken Sound Club that offers Club members on-site physical therapy, nutritional counseling and health seminars. “So pleased to have partnered with other Boca healthy living proponents in this international well-fest, including Waterstone Resort & Marina, Boca Raton Regional Hospital and Boca Raton’s Promise.”
