Half the personal trainers at Sport & Wellness left lucrative careers in other fields to become fitness professionals. The other half jumped right into the world of fitness, accumulating multiple certifications. Regardless of background, the trainers share a common love for athletic pursuits. At Sport & Wellness, they work with equally passionate tennis pros, group-exercise instructors, and climbing experts to help clients become healthier. The professionals oversee five DecoTurf hard tennis courts, a 1,000-square-foot climbing wall, a fitness center, and group-exercise studios. They lend assistance when requested and stay mum when it's not, just like robot butlers. At the on-site nursery, attendants supervise kids while parents work out or socialize.
