At York Gardens Assisted Living, residents can take fitness classes with certified fitness professionals to develop strength, flexibility and balance. The classes are part of the EverActive Fitness Club for seniors, a program created by Centrex Rehab. Staff emphasizes the importance of strength, resistance and balance training to help ease discomfort and increase mobility in the elderly.
“Fitness classes at York Gardens have me using muscles and joints that I don’t normally use,” says participant Phyllis MacLennan. “I can go at my own pace. It is good for anybody to do. It’s enjoyable and I feel better for it.”
