The goal of our exercise program is to keep you physically fit and able to continue in your activities of daily living. When you can maintain your balance and have the muscle strength to move your body well, the restrictions that you place on yourself will be less.
Monday and Friday exercises offer a variety of stretching and balance building exercises. Most of them are done in a sitting position using the upper and lower body. Flexible bands are used for strengthening the arms. The latter part of these exercises are done in a standing position behind a chair, some residents choose to sit for all of the exercises.
The Wednesday morning fitness program incudes a walking program in the warmer months of the year. In the cooler months we offer an additional exercise class.
