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 Intro/Beg.

Beginning ballet consists mostly of barre exercises to improve core strength, flexibility, coordination, and mind/body connection.

Things to bring:

  • Stretchy comfortable clothing that provides visible leg definition (leotard and tights is not necessary)
  • Ballet slippers (socks are okay while trying out the class)

Cardio Drumming

This fun class is a full-body cardio and core strengthening workout, complete with rhythmic drumming. We provide the drumsticks and the exercise balls.

Gym Workout

We have an updated, larger exercise room with new equipment available for use anytime the center is open.

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 Class

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

Stretching and Relaxation

Feeling stiff and not as flexible as you used to be? Neck and back tightening up making you feel achy and tense? You can change that! In this class you’ll get more limber and learn some great techniques to help melt those aches and tension away. Please bring your own mats and be ready to relax. Follows Vital Life Fitness class.

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.

Vital Life Fitness

Strength/ resistance training is one of the best things you can do to avoid injuries, prevent osteoporosis, and keep your metabolism revving so you look and feel great. In this class you’ll be doing strength training to get stronger, improve your posture and cardiovascular health, learn the best exercises to do at home to stay fit, and above all have fun! Please bring a water bottle.

 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.

 

 

Zumba

Zumba Gold is a lower-intensity version of the typical Zumba class and was designed to meet the anatomical, physiological and psychological needs of seniors
