At HUNTER, wellness is a focus – both personally and professionally. We focus on the well being of our team and of our clients, who also have taught us a few things about embracing the wellness lifestyle. What does “wellness” mean? Defining it is not as easy as it may seem.

Globally, health and wellness is a $4.2 trillion industry, according to the Global Wellness Institute. Under the wellness umbrella fall nutrition, weight loss, mind-body, fitness, anti-aging, personal care and beauty. As shown by the array of options, when it comes to taking care of themselves, consumers no longer want a standard strategy: They want what works and they want it specifically tailored to their needs and lifestyle.

In this article, company president Karen Moraghan, explored the wellness programs at three of HUNTER’s private club clients, each with its own approach.  


As Tammy Mugavero, director of fitness and wellness for 23 years at Bonita Bay Club in Naples, Fla., says, “Wellness is difficult to define because it means something different to everyone—the condition of being healthy, the absence of distress or illness, the condition of good physical, mental or emotional health, the active pursuit of health, physical and mental well-being, or the state of being healthy in body and mind.”
