Our aim: To help you feel better

Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults, and those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; you’ll never have to do anything that hurts.
We have chairs you can use for support, if necessary. When you’re ready you can add soft ankle and wrist weights to your workout. It’s all about you It doesn’t matter what others in the class are doing, only that you show up and are ready to move. You’ll set your own goals and we’ll help you meet them. We measure your success with a personal fitness assessment every four months.

What you can expect:

  • Classes meet three times per week for 60-minutes each.
  • Some people will be standing, some will be seated—and some will use the chairs to hold onto for support.
  • You’ll notice that participants move at a pace that’s comfortable for them.
  • The class focuses on strength, flexibility, movement and balance.
  • You’ll make friends who will support you and cheer you on.

Here are some of the changes our participants have noticed in their bodies and minds:

  • More energy
  • Better balance
  • Increases in upper body and lower body strength
  • More flexibility and range of motion
  • Better sleep
  • More feelings of happiness
  • Sense of independence
