We offer the following group fitness classes for older adults:
Prime Movers: Mondays at 2 p.m.
A prime mover is a person or thing that starts something or that has a very powerful influence on something, just as older adults have been doing their entire lives! In the fitness world, prime movers are the muscles that initiate the source of movement during physical action. This class includes muscular strength and flexibility exercises using small hand weights and resistance bands as well as fun with right brain/left brain challenges, coordination skills, balance work, and various movements using small balls. A chair is provided for seated and/or standing support.
SilverSneakers® Classic: Wednesdays & Fridays at 2 p.m.
Have fun and move to the music through a variety of exercises designed to increase muscular strength, range of movement, and activities for daily living. Hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles, and a SilverSneakers ball are offered for resistance. A chair is used for seated and/or standing support.
Senior Chair Volleyball: Thursdays at 2 p.m.
Come and gather with your friends for some fun Beach volleyball…minus the sand! You will enjoy the friendships, smiles, conversation, and activity with this group of seniors.
Pickleball League: Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays
Come discover the fastest growing sport in America! Pickleball is played on a badminton size court, but with a low net, a light weight ball (similar to a wiffle ball), and paddles. This “league” is open to all ages, not just older adults.
Free for GP members over age 60
$2 for non-members.
(Pickleball is free to GP members of all ages; $2 for non-members)
