Cardio & Conditioning

9:30 am


Join us for a cycle session to strengthen your legs and build fitness. Indoor cycling offers many benefits for older adults, whether you are already active or ready to try a new form of exercise. Cycling classes can keep the rider's heart rate elevated long enough to reap cardiovascular benefits such as lowering blood pressure, lowering LDL cholesterol, and improving lung function. It is also low impact and easier on our joints. If you are new to indoor cycling, this is the perfect class for you.

Intensity level: Moderate to high

A total body workout for anyone looking to get strong, toned and fit! Using light to moderate weights on an adjustable barbell and hand weights, Body Pump will burn calories, shape and strengthen the body.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient art embracing the mind, body and spirit. Tai Chi is one of the most effective forms of exercises for improving overall health. Although it requires knowledge and some skill it is easy, enjoyable and safe to learn. Tai Chi is medically proven to relieve pain for people with arthritis as well as preventing falls for older adults. Tai Chi improves muscular strength (particularly in the lower body), flexibility, mobility, balance and cardiovascular fitness. Additional benefits include improving relaxation, vitality, posture and immunity.
