For Del Webb residents, an active and healthy lifestyle is at the heart
of daily life at Del Webb communities nationwide. With the upcoming
observance of National Senior Health and Fitness Day on May 29, it’s the
perfect time to celebrate the dynamic
lifestyles that Del Webb residents enjoy every day.
Del Webb residents report being more physically active: 35 percent say
they’re more active than they were 10 years ago, compared to 14 percent
of baby boomers nationally. Only a quarter of baby boomers surveyed say
they exercise several times a week, versus nearly half (48 percent) of
Del Webb residents.
As the leading homebuilder for those ages 55 and older, Del Webb has
long pioneered communities that encourage and enable active lifestyles.
The health benefits of physical activity have been widely reported, but
it is also a key factor in the emotional health and wellbeing of
individuals at this stage of life. It all adds up to a greater sense of
contentment: 46 percent of Del Webb residents report being happier today
than they were 10 years ago, a sentiment shared only by 32 percent of
boomers as a whole.
The favorite form of exercise for this age group, Del Webb resident or
not, is walking. Upwards of 80 percent enjoy it, and Del Webb residents
can hit the trails that wind throughout their communities or take
advantage of the treadmills in the on-site fitness centers. But Del Webb
residents also report a wider range of sports and activities they like
to participate in, from group exercise classes to weightlifting,
pickleball, biking and golf, reflecting the array of options for staying
active offered at Del Webb communities.
“Del Webb communities are focused on providing the active and healthy
lifestyle that today’s 55 and better adults are looking for in this next
phase of their lives,” said PulteGroup Executive Vice President and
Chief Operating Officer John Chadwick. “Residents tell us that they’re
finally getting the chance to do things they never had time for or
access to, whether it’s a daily water aerobics class, playing on a
community softball team, or taking ballroom dancing lessons – there are
countless opportunities to be active and build connections with their
neighbors. That’s a great recipe for long-term health and wellbeing.”
Nurturing a healthy lifestyle starts at each community’s amenity center,
which serves as the hub for residents to access and share all the
activities that are the hallmark of life at Del Webb. Communities offer
a wide range of amenities that enhance wellbeing, including state of the
art fitness centers, resort-style pools, dog parks and walking paths,
community gardens, pickleball, bocce and tennis courts, ballrooms and
golf courses. It’s all coordinated by a lifestyle director who
facilitates physical and social activities to regularly introduce new
experiences for residents.
According to the survey, Del Webb residents also value the social
connections their communities facilitate. Social life is very important
to 41 percent of residents, and over a third say they have a large
social network. In contrast, only 15 percent of baby boomers generally
place a high value on their social life, and only one-sixth describe
their social network as large.
Del Webb communities are built for active adults who want to thrive, and
no one can express the enjoyment of a healthy and fit lifestyle better
than the residents themselves. Enjoy their stories HERE.
