AVENTURA, Fla. – The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club has entered into new partnerships to bolster the fitness, training and rehabilitation services for the club’s members and resort guests.
Pete Bommarito, president of Bommarito Performance Systems, will oversee all of the fitness programs at the resort’s Willow Stream Spa. Bommarito has a lengthy client list of professional athletes in the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and several other sports.
The partnership also includes Dr. Matthew Cooper, a certified chiropractic sports physician at Florida Rehabilitation Clinic who specializes in rehabilitation techniques.
“For over five years, Pete and I have successfully worked together to transform bodies and the lives of elite and professional athletes,” Cooper said in a release issued by the resort. “Our performance program gives us specific information regarding each individual’s makeup, which in turn allows us to enhance weight loss and improve health much faster than most.”
In addition, the 3,650-square-foot Willow Stream Spa has undergone $150,000 in renovations, including the installation of new fitness equipment. By January the spa plans to install an Advanced Motion Measurement 3-D Golf System.
The Fairmont Turnberry Isle, a 300-acre property, has 392 rooms, two golf courses and chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak restaurant.
