Our Certified Personal Trainers are available for one-on-one and “buddy” sessions in our fully-equipped Fitness Room, which residents can also use on their own after an individual assessment and orientation. Our trainers will also work with physical therapists, occupational therapists, inpatient rehab therapists and cardiac rehab teams to help residents transition back into an exercise routine that will maintain what they’ve developed in treatment and help prevent future injury.
Water Fitness Classes are offered in our specially designed three-level pool, which is covered with a retractable glass cover that allows for warm winter swimming and open air summer fun. Residents are free to swim outside of class times with the “buddy system” or during scheduled supervised and lap swimming times. Two jets at the deep end give lap swimmers the option of an endless current to enjoy. Plus, residents are able to relax and pamper themselves in our whirlpool spa with heated, therapeutic jets.
