Arthritis Foundation Exercise

Arthritis Foundation ExerciseArthritis Foundation Exercise Program (AFEP) is a community-based recreational exercise program that was originally developed by the Arthritis Foundation in 1987 and revised in 1999, 2005, and 2009. Class levels can be modified to accommodate the different capabilities of people with arthritis and related diseases. The program’s multiple components help reduce pain and stiffness, and help maintain or improve mobility, muscle strength and functional availability.

Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program classes are conducted by trained and certified instructors in partnership with the local Arthritis Foundation chapter. The instructors are usually health or fitness professionals who have attended an 8-hour training workshop. To accommodate different group needs, instructors select from 90 different exercises performed while participants are seated, standing or lying on the floor. Activities also include endurance-building activities, balance exercises, relaxation techniques and health education segments. An advanced level contains more aerobic conditioning activities and use of resistance bands and weights.

Ballet (Power Barre)

This class blends elements of ballet, Pilates, yoga, aerobics and strength exercises.  Participants should bring a yoga mat and a set of light hand weights.  It is designed to help improve posture, muscle tone, balance, flexibility, and promote increased stamina and circulation.  Power Barre is designed primarily for those who can get up and down from the floor unassisted.

Cardio Dance

This is an aerobic-style class with low-impact dance moves. Bring some water with you!

Circuit Training

This class is a cardio routine broken up with sections of weights. All levels are welcome. Most of the class is standing, but almost everything could be done seated in a chair, if necessary. We have weights, but if you want a specific weight to use, please bring your own.

Exercise Room

Exercise Bikes & TreadmillWe currently have a few pieces of equipment available for use anytime the center is open.

Mat-less Yoga

This seated class offers range of motion exercises, working on flexibility and breathing. We also do balancing exercises and yoga poses. Bring water!

Pickleball

PickleballPickleball was created with one thing in mind: fun. It was designed to be easy to learn and play whether you’re five, eighty-five or somewhere in between.  It is traditionally played on a badminton-sized court with special paddles, made of wood or high-tech aerospace materials. The ball used is similar to a wiffle ball, but slightly smaller. The lower net and wiffle ball allow the game to be accessible to people of all ages and abilities, while still allowing more competitive players to test their mettle. In many net sports, games are often won and lost by the power of the serve. In pickleball, the ball must bounce once on each side before volleys are allowed. This opens the game to more players and extends play for added fun.

Stretch

Gentle stretching for the entire body, head to feet. Light warm-up followed by stretching, ending with eight to ten minutes of relaxation and meditation.

Things to bring:

  • Yoga mat
  • Yoga strap (preferably a non-elastic strap)
  • Clothes that easy to move in

Table Tennis

We offer fun times playing table tennis. Paddles are provided. We have three tables available. All players, at any skill level, are invited to participate.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi (pronounced “tie chee”) is an ancient Chinese therapy that connects the mind, body, and spirit through a series of slow, gentle, flowing postures that create a kind of synchronized dance. This is a great class for beginners and involves gentle stretching, breathing, and meditation in motion. Tai Chi may be done in flat shoes or barefoot. Bring a water bottle, if you like.

 Yoga Classes

 

The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling an individual’s mind, body and soul. It brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve a peaceful body and mind, to help manage stress and anxiety. It also helps with increasing flexibility, muscle strength and body tone. It improves respiration, energy and vitality. Practicing yoga might seem like just stretching, but it can do much more for your body from the way you feel, look and move.

 Zircuit

Cross Zircuit ClassesThis 30 minute class combines cardiovascular fitness moves with basic dance steps and light hand weights for a total body workout.
