“I am 87 years young and have participated in the fitness program for several years. The benefits are many. For example: walking improves my memory, circulation and mobility, and it helps lower my blood pressure. I can choose to walk alone or increase my speed and join a fellow walker to converse while walking. From the exercise class, I have gained energy, strength and flexibility. I feel healthy, free and fantastic and have also made lots of new friends!”
“I have been working with the Community Fitness members since 2004. We create an environment that is warm and welcoming. Exercises are modified for all fitness levels. The program helps members to sleep better, lose weight and increase mobility while establishing long-lasting relationships. This is my calling! I get the same benefits from the progams that the members do. They say I motivate them, but in truth, they are the ones who motivate me!”
