Alexan ALX’s Holiday Health & Wellness Guide

It’s the season of indulgence, which means that many of us will put our diets and health regimes to the side all the way from Thanksgiving to New Years. Fortunately, San Diego is known for its healthy lifestyle and quality-of-life in general (ranked in Forbes’ Top 20 Healthiest City List)…and we have the health and wellness tips to prove it! If you want to feel good AND look good this holiday season, we suggest checking out some of these downtown San Diego health and wellness hotspots:


Alexan ALX – That’s right, us! The Alexan ALX design team has made sure our signature collection of apartment amenities will appease any level of wellness seeker and fitness buff in San Diego. Residents will have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center that’s open 24/7, and a rooftop pool/spa deck that will help ease the senses and tame the stress levels. The Alexan ALX team is also looking forward to planning complimentary group fitness classes in the gym and other community spaces (feel free to contact us with a suggestion on what activity you’d like to participate in).


Looking for solitude? Make a fresh juice in your Alexan ALX gourmet kitchen, grab a good book, and head down to our courtyard lounge featuring a multi-story water wall…it’s the ultimate zen experience! Did we mention that your pets can take wellness days, too? Alexan ALX has an on-site pet spa and dog park for our fur residents!


Now, we completely understand that variety is the spice of life, so here are a few other off-site health and wellness hotspots that are located just steps away from Alexan ALX:


FIT Athletic Club: Take a short stroll down the block from Alexan ALX and you’ll find yourself at FIT Athletic, downtown San Diego’s most coveted luxury fitness club. Not only does the gym have a vast layout of top-of-the-line training equipment and a gorgeous aesthetic, but it also has over 50 instructor classes per week, a Vitaboost clinic, personal training sessions, meal planning café, outdoor swimming pool, spa and tanning services, and a membership perk collaboration with Alexan ALX and other local businesses.
