THE WOODLANDS, TX -- With 130,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, VillaSport is the largest commercial fitness facility in The Woodlands. The club offers a plethora of activities in strength and cardio, group exercises, aquatics, and even spa treatments and child care. Add the upcoming edition of the fully immersive cycling workout, “THE TRIP”, to everything the club offers its members and VillaSport stands out as a great staycation destination in The Woodlands.

“THE TRIP” launches June 13 for VillaSport members and this group cycling program will provide riders with an experience like never before.

“It’s group cycling in an IMAX-style theatre setting that immerses riders into this three-dimensional experience,” said General Manager Herb Lipsman.

“THE TRIP” is the latest workout from LES MILLS that “combines a 40-minute multi-peak cycling workout with a journey through digitally-created worlds.” These digitally-created worlds have around 20 versions according to Lipsman.

“Our instructors are certified to teach each version,” said Lipsman. “So, if you come in for a class every Monday morning, the instructors can change it up each week.”

With the instructors in front leading the way and multiple projectors providing the scenery, riders are taken on a journey through beautiful futuristic paths that suck you in to feel each and every dip and turn.

“THE TRIP” is a unique experience as there are only about 20 of these studios in the country. Three of them belong to VillaSport locations here in the Houston area, meaning VillaSport has fully bought into providing its members with fresh, exciting ways to workout.

“Our company wanted to do something new,” said Lipsman. “This class was attracting a lot of positive attention, so we went out and looked at everything and this struck our fancy.”

“THE TRIP” is just one benefit of being a VillaSport member. The large size of the facility not only allows for more workout options, but it also allows members to easily self-distance themselves to feel safe from the potential spread of coronavirus. With hundreds of pieces of equipment properly spaced, four pools, and employees wearing masks and keeping areas disinfected, everyone can self-distance.

Your summer’s vacation plans may have been altered, but the luxurious amenities provided by VillaSport will give you the resort feel without having to leave town.

“Some of our members will tell you that their favorite part of the club is our luxurious locker rooms, each with their own hot tub, eucalyptus steam room and dry sauna,” said Lipsman. “These locker rooms make you feel like you are at a luxury resort all year long. We also offer VillaSpa, providing massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, spray tanning, and waxing services for members and non-members alike.”

VillaSport’s indoor and outdoor recreational pools are equipped with water slides, splash pads, and more. If you need a bite to eat, the poolside snack bar adds to the daily resort feel that only VillaSport can provide.

To truly provide that resort vacation feel, you can’t forget about the kids. That’s why the VillaKids club is a 10,000 square foot facility made to accommodate kids from ages six weeks to 12 years old.

In addition to the child care services for members during their workouts, VillaKids offers weekly summer camps from June to August. The summer camps include weekly themes such as “Nature Navigators” or “Villa Olympics” to keep kids engaged and excited to return each day.

VillaSport strives to make its athletic club the premier fitness center in The Woodlands.

“We also offer arguably the finest team of fitness professionals of personal trainers, group exercise instructors and Pilates instructors in The Woodlands,” said Lipsman. “For those seeking a healthier lifestyle in a welcoming and encouraging environment, VillaSport stands alone.”
