Since moving to the Elm Street building in August 2017, more fitness programs and classes have been added at the Wellness Center. An Open House was held to provide community members with the opportunity to tour our facility and try out some of our fitness classes. Recently, a SilverSneakers® Yoga (chair yoga) class was added. This class is open to all and not just for SilverSneakers® members. The annual Heart Radiothon cholesterol screening was also held at the Wellness Center, which provided health screenings to the community. Throughout the year CPR and 1st Aid classes are offered at the Wellness Center, as well as healthy cooking and weight management classes, to name a few.
The equipment in the Wellness Center was replaced in September 2018, and we added new cardiovascular and resistance training machines. To accommodate our early morning members, the hours have been expanded. We now open at 5:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. Personal Trainers are available to customize your fitness program and help you meet your goals. Affordable rates of 3, 6 and 12-month single/family memberships or day/week passes can be purchased without an initiation fee. The price for a single 3-month membership starts as low as $100. A Wellness Center membership includes a 50% discount on fitness classes. Check out the Health & Wellness programs in this issue, and follow us on Facebook for the latest information.
