Be Healthy

Be Active


Active Older Adults


Perhaps no age group can experience more health benefits from exercise than those over the age of 50 years old.  Exercise such as walking, jogging, and strength training is effective for burning calories and improving muscular strength.  Keep active with our senior activities and lessen the health risks as you get older!




This class is targeted towards seniors and those just begining exercise in our pool.  This class will improve range of motion and muscle tone while helping to improve strength.


Monday, Wednesday and Friday:  9:00-10:00 a.m.

Each session lasts one month.


Fee: $15.00 for members/month; $34.00 non-member/month





Active Older Adults Weight Training:

This two day per week class is a combination of the needed workout as well as the socialization that the older adult likes to stay active.  Sessions in this class utilize both our state of the art selectorized strength training equipment as well as the free weight dumbbells.  Come and join us for a fun filled session complete with coffee and fellowship afterwards!
