Wellness at

Walnut Cove

At The Cliffs at Walnut Cove, an active, healthy lifestyle truly is a focus and the perfect complement to the natural beauty that surrounds us in Asheville’s premier gated community.


Our wellness program, housed in an 18,000 square foot state-of-the-art health center, offers something for everyone – catering to all stages of fitness and health.  The ultimate goal of the program is to help each resident make the most of their investment in Walnut Cove real estate, from the executive who still works full time to the retiree whose primary job is improving their score on the golf course.


Yoga classes at The Cliffs at Walnut Cove are accessible to everyone, from the first-timer to the true yogi.  The instructors tailor each class to exactly what the group needs and make sure everyone is doing the poses correctly to avoid injury.  Walnut Cove residents are often thrilled to see time spent in the yoga studio pay off on the tennis or golf course!  Private sessions are available, in addition to regular group classes.


Walnut Cove residents looking for a good sweat session often gravitate toward spinning classes.  The music, advanced level of cardio and fun instructors make these classes some of the most popular at The Cliffs at Walnut Cove gym.  Spinning devotees also appreciate that they can determine their own intensity level, to accommodate any injuries or other personal needs.

Personal Trainers

The staff at the Walnut Cove Wellness Center realizes that Zumba and interval training classes aren’t for everyone.  Some residents prefer a more tailored approach to their health and wellness through personal training.  The personal trainers at Walnut Cove focus on keeping workouts fun and interesting, often getting out of the gym to take advantage of the stunning natural scenery our private community offers.

Spa Treatments

Wellness at The Cliffs at Walnut Cove goes beyond fitness classes and weight machines.  Our health center staff believes that an hour spent on the massage table can be just as beneficial to the body as an hour in the gym.  Spa treatments include facials, massage, reiki and more.
