V!VAfit focuses on four important components of senior fitness tailored to your enjoyment and comfort level

Cardiovascular Exercises

  • For example: walking on our treadmill or out and about with our Walking Club, biking on our cycle, swimming in our pool, or participating in an exercise class
  • These types of exercises improve your stamina and reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke.
 

Strength Exercises

  • Get strong in our V!VAfit Gym on our Keiser strength machines. Let our Lifestyle Coordinator tailor a safe strength workout for you, using the resistance equipment that best suits your needs.
  • This is a very important component of any program. As we age, we lose muscle leading to a decline in our muscle-function. These exercises will help you perform all of your daily activities better and with more ease. Simply put - you will be stronger

Flexibility Exercises

  • All of our V!VAfit classes and Personal Training Sessions include stretching exercises.
  • We want to keep you moving and moving well. We recognize that everyone’s body moves differently so we encourage your best possible range of motion.
 

Balance Exercises

  • Join our specific exercise programs that focus on stability.
  • There are many benefits of balance training including better posture and coordination and a significant reduction in your risk of injury.
