How to Get Started

The first step to become involved in wellness programming is to have a basic fitness screening called a senior fitness assessment. The assessment helps determine a resident’s current lower body and upper body strength, cardiovascular endurance, balance, and flexibility. Once the assessment is completed with the wellness coordinator, the resident becomes eligible to do be involved in classes and wellness activities. Senior fitness testing can be scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. or by appointment. Residents are eligible for personal training or guided exercise programs once they have completed their Senior Fitness Assessment.
