Need kid coverage? Simple, call the sitter. Need a hot pair of heels? Take a jaunt to Jimmy Choo. And when you wanna get healthy, there’s a brand-new go-to in town: Valley Health LifeStyles.
We took the jaw-dropping tour of this world-class mega fitness center at the Valley Center for Health and Wellness which recently opened in in Mahwah and with spring dress season about to be in full swing (nor’easters be damned!), it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Much more than a gym, Valley Health LifeStyles’s 75,906-square-foot space includes an aquatics area with a six-lane lap pool, a leisure/play pool and a warm-water therapy pool; state-of-the-art fitness equipment; a rock climbing wall; the KidStyles recreation area; sports performance training; a walking and running track; a full sized basketball court (!) and more. What sets Valley Health LifeStyles apart from your neighborhood gym (besides it’s sheer size and breadth of offerings) is its emphasis on “the medical fitness difference.”
“As a medical fitness center, the focus is on the prevention and treatment of disease, illness and injury through regular participation in physical activity, disease management and health education,” says Robert Silverman, M.D., Valley Health Lifestyles’s Medical Director.
In addition to Valley Health LifeStyles, when fully completed, the Center will house a range of health and wellness services including health screenings; a diagnostics laboratory; The Valley Hospital Sports Institute; a Valley Medical Group urgent care center; diagnostic imaging services; community health programs and services; a retail pharmacy; and conference space.
