Physical fitness is very important to many Riderwood community members. Staying in good shape helps them live their retirement to the fullest and enjoy their families, friends, travel, hobbies, and everything Riderwood has to offer. 

To continue exceeding residents’ expectations for on-site amenities, Riderwood is currently in the process of building a two-story, 25,000-square-foot wellness center. The new facility will be the fourth fitness center on Riderwood’s campus.

“As a community that prides itself on meeting the needs of the residents and positioning ourselves as an attractive community to prospective residents, we wanted to create a more comprehensive wellness center that would provide more accessibility to a healthy lifestyle,” says George Mishraky, director of sales at Riderwood.

Mishraky says community members are excited that Riderwood is adding a new wellness center. And it sounds like the new space will not disappoint.

“The new wellness center will include a state-of-the-art aquatics center with a hot tub, multipurpose rooms for personal training, exercise classes, pickleball games, and table tennis,” Mishraky says. “There will also be a fitness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment.”

Project on track 

The wellness center, which was designed by Merlino Design Partnership, Inc. Hord Coplan Macht Architects, will also feature a green roof in support of Riderwood’s sustainability initiatives. 

In the fall, development of the new facility was well underway, with roofing, insulation, and pool construction all in process. Mishraky says the project is on track to be completed in May 2020.

“Our residents are active and enjoy working out,” says Gary Hibbs, Riderwood’s executive director, “and the new wellness center will meet the health and wellness needs of our 2,500 residents. We are going to be celebrating 19 years of experience and excellence in serving the senior living industry in the Baltimore/Washington metro area of Maryland. The modernization of Riderwood is designed to meet the needs of current and future residents, and health and wellness is a top priority for many of them.”
