Holistic Wellness

Exploring a new passion. Connecting with neighbors. Choosing your next adventure. Uncovering a hidden talent. These are things that energize and inspire us daily. And they’re what our wellness program was built upon. Zest Wellness is SRG’s signature, science-based program that takes a holistic approach to well-being, incorporating the mind, body, and soul. 

Zest inspires the Mind with creative and intellectual expression. Keeps the Body in tune with daily motion and attention to nutrition by offering FreshZest®, a selection of healthy, whole-food plant-forward menu options. And feeds the Soul through engaging social and personal connections. 

The fundamentals of Zest wellness

Mind, Body, and Soul

Because wellness is an individual journey, Zest offers a wide range of experiences that appeal to each individual’s challenges, strengths, and goals. SRG focuses not only on the body, but on the mind and the soul — three areas of wellness that we believe are vital and interconnected and contribute to an individual’s state of being.

A Curious Mind

Creating, learning, connecting; inspiration and expression; individually or together: the mind loves to be engaged, and we make sure it never gets boring!

Well-being for every Journey

Zest for Life

Wellness is the act of purposeful engagement in a healthy lifestyle; nourishing your mind, body, and soul with daily activities that promote optimal physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and mental well-being outcomes—so you’re thriving, instead of just surviving. Every person is an individual. Every journey should be personalized. We believe in meeting you where you are in your personal journey, so you feel your best at any age and fitness level.
