Well on Your Way to Wellness

When you think of wellness, fad diets and rigid exercise regimens may come to mind. Yet wellness has a much broader (and enjoyable) scope, an umbrella for anything that promotes inner peace and physical wellbeing while practicing movement in the verb of your choice. And here at The Collective, holistic health is the name of our game.

Consider The Campus – a 10,000-square-foot private clubhouse that houses everything you’ll need for an active start to the new year. For gentle movement that’s easy on the joints, take a dip in the pool, then head to the spa for some relaxation and muscle recovery. If pool with a cue stick (and a little less water) is more your speed, the billiards room has you covered. A well-equipped fitness center is also at your disposal, so exercise is accessible in every form.

Take to the land for a generous – and diverse – handful of ways to experience wellness at this Manteca community. Get your sweat on with a game of pickleball, or for something a bit more leisurely, connect with neighbors over a round of bocce ball. A vital facet of wellness, social exchange does as much good for the spirit as exercise does for the physical body – and sustains resident togetherness at The Collective.

Outdoor options for activity and adventure just keep on coming. Soak in some vitamin D and say hello to Mother Earth as you meander on foot or by wheels through community gardens and open spaces. A pinnacle of wellness, grounding yourself in nature gives you the chance to inhale some fresh air and stretch out your limbs while passing by friendly faces and colorful views. And if you bring your pups along for the ride, treat them to a visit to the dog park – a couple rounds of fetch mean fitness for all.

With body strengthened, mind sharpened and spirit uplifted, make room for rest in your wellness journey as well. Allow your body to recover from a day of movement at any of The Collective’s lounge areas and fire pits – the perfect spots to support long-lasting healthy habits – then fuel your body with a nutritious meal prepared at The Campus’ outdoor kitchen.

Unrestricted. Unique. Uplifting. That’s everything your wellness journey at The Collective should be. And while it may look different for everyone, the amenities at this master-planned community are designed to guide you toward your best self – in whatever way movement and wellbeing come most natural to you.

Find Exciting New Hobbies in Manteca

With a population of just under 90,000 people, Manteca, California, is a medium-sized city with a lot to offer. It has everything that you can expect from a larger town but maintains its small-town feel at the same time. In addition to attending festivals celebrating local produce and enjoying an afternoon on one of the many lakes, here are five hobbies we suggest picking up while enjoying all that Manteca has to offer:

Spend time outdoors. There is nothing that convening with nature can’t fix. Manteca offers a wide variety of outdoor activities that would both interest and challenge any nature lover. Whether you are looking to go on a hike to a waterfall, take a quick bike ride at Manteca’s Tidewater Bikeway, or see what it’s like to sleep under the stars. For everything you need to have a great and safe time, stop by and see the experts at Bass Pro Shop Manteca.

Pick up golfing. The weather here is great almost year-round, so golfing right through all four seasons is an easy task. With several beautiful courses just outside of town, there is no reason why anyone couldn’t enjoy themselves playing 18 holes with friends or family members.

Become a foodie. Manteca has some great places to grab food and drink. There are local hangouts and national chains mixed throughout the city, so if you live here, chances are there is something for your taste close by.

Become a wine connoisseur. Manteca is a short drive away from several wineries, some with a century of experience like Harvey Lane Winery, growing everything from Albariño to Zinfandel to Petite Syrah and more! To stay inside city limits, check out Delicato Family Wines, a top 10 U.S. supplier right here in Manteca.

Get cultured. Exploring all that culture has to offer is an important part of life. Manteca natives pride themselves on taking advantage of everything they can, from local performing arts theaters, art galleries and concerts. Those who don’t live in town frequently visit for this reason too.

These are just five of the many hobbies you can pick up in Manteca, CA. With its central location and proximity to major highways, there is access to all kinds of places and people just a short drive away.
