6 Ways a Master Planned Community Keeps You Active

Posted by Vintage Oaks

Topics: master-planned communities


Getting and staying fit is important to all of us, but did you know that where you live can actually help you achieve this important goal? Master planned communities keep residents active through on-site amenities and community events and get-togethers that invite interaction. 

1. Swimming

Swimming is not only a refreshing activity for a warm day, but is also a favorite exercise that provides a low-impact, total-body workout.

Not only is swimming easy on the body, it's a great way to get fit, according to WebMD, because it works “all the major muscle groups and builds strength because “water affords 12 times the resistance as air in every direction.” 

2. Trails

Trails that wind through the community, providing opportunities for strolling, running, and biking, are an added advantage for buyers, especially in areas like the Texas Hill Country. The rolling terrain provides additional challenge for those looking to get their heart rate up, while the scenic surroundings allow them to connect with nature.

3. Sport court and ball fields

Basketball and tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields—all allow master plan residents to watch a game or get involved themselves. Getting a team together not only provides a great outlet for fitness, but also opportunities for fun while getting to know neighbors.

4. Aerobic exercise

Many master planned communities also have exercise facilities on site. Whether that means running on the treadmill, building muscle on the strength training machines, or taking part in a Zumba class, the fitness opportunities are enticing.

5. Clubs and get-togethers

One of the most exciting things about being part of an active, friendly master planned community is the abundance of social opportunities. In communities like Vintage Oaks, neighbors quickly become friends through shared goals and experiences. They form or join social clubs, take walks together through the community, and keep their calendars full with special events and activities.

6. The local area

Another benefit of living in a planned community is the proximity to area amenities. In addition to the shopping, dining, and entertainment you would expect, area recreation may also provide great opportunities for staying active. Look for everything from local parks to hiking and biking trails to golf courses to water activities like rowing and canoeing.

In the Hill Country, the best master plans offer a mix of coveted on-site amenities and a convenient location that puts area amenities within easy reach. Buyers who seek an active lifestyle within a serene setting with breathtaking views and an abundance of homes and homesites choose Vintage Oaks, helping to make it the area’s fastest-growing master planned community in the Hill Country.
