8 Ways to Refocus on Yourself in 2023Eva Faircloth - January 09, 2023
As we enter a new year, our thoughts turn to resolutions and a focus on our health. It’s easier than ever to keep in shape with fitness apps, watches, and livestream classes. Taking a vacation doesn’t mean you have to put your well-being on hold. Turquoise Place in Orange Beach offers the perfect place to refuel, recharge and refocus, and here are eight ways to do just that.
The beach makes a fantastic place to soak up Vitamin D, reduce stress, and get exercise. Fortunately, your Turquoise Place condo is just steps from the Gulf of Mexico. Beach chair and umbrella rentals, available spring through early fall, are here to help you make the most of your beach time. New boardwalks with ramps creates an easier way to transport your gear to the sand, too!
Swimming is an excellent form of exercise. Turquoise Place has multiple resort-style pools available to our guests, including three outdoor pools, a kiddie pool, two indoor pools, and the lazy river. Take in some laps or just splash around to get your heart rate up, build endurance, help maintain a healthy weight, and tone your muscles. It’s a great all-over body workout!
After your swim, relax your muscles in our saunas and steam rooms, located on the fourth floor of each tower. Saunas increase circulation, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, flush toxins from the body, and relieve stress. Steam rooms do all of that, plus promote skin health and loosen stiff joints.
If you prefer a land-based training session, our fitness rooms offer a beautiful view of the Gulf for your workout. Furnished with top-of-the-line Atlantis equipment, you’ll find elliptical machines, treadmills, squat and bench press racks, and free weights. Discover the fitness rooms on the fourth floor of each tower.
Looking for a more relaxed way to wellness? Find your Zen with a beach yoga session. Nothing centers your soul quite like a quiet morning of focus and reflection. You can schedule a private session on our beaches with Glow Yoga.
Another excellent form of exercise is bicycling. Fortunately, Turquoise Place is just a mile and a half from the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail at Gulf State Park. Rent a bike from Beach Bike Rentals or Infinity Bicycles, then strike out on the seven trails that make up more than 26 miles of the system. You’ll traverse several ecosystems and see some of the local wildlife, maybe even an alligator!
Sticking to a healthy diet is made simple at Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants that specialize in locally-sourced food. Picnic Beach in Gulf Shores offers vegan and vegetarian options, as well as gluten-free menu items. The Southern Grind Coffee House in Orange Beach serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with smoothies, salads, sandwiches, and even a vegan burger on the menu. You can also get grocery delivery through our concierge packages to have a pantry of healthy choices waiting on the day of your arrival. Our well-equipped kitchens have everything you need to prepare meals in your unit.
Leave stress behind. We know stress creates a myriad of physical ailments, including high blood pressure, cardiac issues, headaches, and more. A beach vacation is all about relaxing. Just having a good night’s sleep can make a huge difference. Our comfortable, luxury rentals and onsite services make it easy to do just that. After all, there is no better place to fall asleep than to the lulling sound of waves just outside your window.
