Wellness Studio
The 1240 square foot Wellness Studio is designed for group wellness classes.  Classes that improve the aging body are offered including Yoga, Tai Chi, Balance & Stretching, Interval Training, Strength Training, and Aerobics.  We have highly qualified and certified instructors.

Therapy Pool:
The 33,000 gallon warm water therapy pool is kept at a body neutral temperature of at least 90 degrees. The positive benefits of pain relief and increased mobility when exercising in warm water are obvious and sometimes immediate.  We offer a variety of classes including the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program that include an additional charge.  Open swim times are also available in the therapy pool for those that do not wish to have an instructor led class.  Webbed gloves, noodles, flotation belts, kick boards, and water weights are available for member use.  The therapy pool also offers two handicap accessible self-powered lifts.

Many exercises pieces meet ADA requirements, and the fitness center is set up following the strictest ADA guidelines.  Flat screen televisions are offered for your entertainment and distraction! Daily free equipment orientations are offered, and the fitness center is staffed with qualified personnel to answer questions most open hours of the building. A Cardio Club and a Walking Club are two of our more popular activities. Also available for member use is an automatic blood pressure machine, scale, body fat analyzer, and heart rate monitors. Complete access to the fitness center and all of its amenities is included in your membership. A fee-based strength training class that offers a more in depth personal training approach is available as well.
