In order to provide safe and appropriate levels of exercise, we have partnered with the YMCA to offer an Enhanced Fitness Program for our senior population.  Each class is taught by an experienced instructor who holds a nationally accredited Group Exercise Certification, and is CPR/AED certified, as well.  Classes are all-inclusive and take place in the YMCA facility. (Please register in the Social Services Office).

The classes meet on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.  It is recommended that you have your physician’s approval prior to beginning any exercise program.

 

What is Enhanced Fitness?

Enhance Fitness is a physical activity program comprised of three 45-minute classes per week.  The classes are designed to safely increase participants’ fitness levels through aerobic and strength training exercises while building a sense of community and social connectedness among class members. 

Enhance Fitness has been proven to increase participants’ strength, balance, flexibility, mood, general activity level, and independence when they attend on a regular basis. 

The program is beneficial for older adults in general, but has been deemed particularly safe and effective for older adults living with arthritis and is listed as recommended arthritis intervention by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Participants' progress can be followed with fitness checks completed at the time the individual joins Enhance Fitness, again at four months, and then as often as needed.

 

It is important to stress, that the participant exercises based on their own abilities.  The instructor will help individuals modify their routine based on their fitness ability.
