Before you make a decision on the best places to live in Scottsdale AZ, take some time to discover the benefits of living in Arizona and the unique communities it has to offer.

Here’s an exclusive glimpse into how we define community living at Terravita, and what sets our lifestyle apart, and ahead, from other communities.

Living among Friends

We call our way of life community living for a reason. Not only are our homes and facilities intentionally designed to foster relationships and nurture connection between residents, but we have also created a neighborhood full of vibrant and like-minded individuals. To accompany this lifestyle we remodeled our community center and clubhouse, which was unveiled in January 2019 and has quickly become the central core of our golf community.

At Terravita, we also emphasize family and group activities. If you want to develop a skill or try a new hobby, we have plentiful opportunities to do so in the company of friends. So whether you become a regular at our art studio, or gather a group of neighbors for a weekly bocce ball tournament, you can’t go wrong socializing and having fun in a community living setting.

Enjoy the Finer Things of Life

Our residents also love the premium we place on quality, throughout every corner of our community. We keep all our roads in tip-top shape with regular paving and frequently update our golf course with improvements. We also ensured our new community center and clubhouse is first-class, with state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. Terravita members enjoy all the best in health and wellness, including classes in Pilates, Tai chi, water aerobics, yoga, cardio, strength training, and beyond.

We Don’t Do Fine Print

Another one of the best features of our community living model is the financial aspect. We manage money and have stable dues (with no assessments), which is unlike many other active communities. Beware of any community that assesses you for financial viability, or makes you jump through other hoops and/or sign off on other fine print in order to join. We keep things straightforward, and top-notch, for your benefit.

As you’re looking around at living in Scottsdale AZ, we encourage you to consider the benefits of living in a luxury private golf community. At Terravita we strive to provide something for everyone at every age. We’d love to take you on a tour and answer any questions you have. Please contact us any time.

How to Stay Fit Later in Life

As we age, life takes some adjustment and requires thoughtful self-care. Keeping or building a social network can help promote consistency and fun when exercising.  Though staying healthy should be a high priority for everyone, it is important to consider the health benefits of staying active later in life and into early retirement.   

Physical activity promotes flexibility, pain management, and heart health, but fitness is crucial for mental and emotional health as well, as exercise aids mood stability and can even improve memory. To stay healthy later in life, consider these fitness and health tips:

Swimming – Swimming is a great low-impact exercise that can be done year-round and is great for the entire body. Swimming has many benefits including, heart health, easy on joints and bones, and great for circulation and lowering blood pressure. By joining a neighborhood gym, or taking advantage of amenities offered at an active adult community you can socialize and take care of your health all at the same time.

Golf – Staying healthy can be as easy as a day on the links: golf is a perfect recipe for health and wellness. Social interaction with golf buddies, vitamin D from the sun, and moderate physical activity are all benefits of playing golf. Golfing with friends at an active community like Terravita Golf & Country Club is a great way to be a part of the community, and to keep your health top of mind.

Yoga – Yoga is a wonderful promoter of healthy aging. It is great for reducing stress and blood pressure, improving flexibility and breathing problems, and for general mindfulness and spiritual health. Start slowly and with regular practice you will begin to see positive changes in your health. Many family and active retirement communities offer a fitness center equipped with group classes such as yoga. Joining group exercise classes not only gives motivation for a healthy lifestyle but encourages a social life away from the office or later in life, post-retirement.

At-Home Fitness Routine – Try some simple exercises that don’t require any equipment and don’t take up a lot of time. Healthy aging can be fostered with just a few daily staples like marching in place and heel raises. These simple exercises can strengthen muscles, improve balance and flexibility, and help reduce pain, cramping, and stiffness.

Many baby boomers and early retirees are concerned about how to stay healthy. By adding new and easy fitness routines, you can encourage healthy aging and enjoy your new hobbies with a community of friends.
