Balance & Core (45 minutes): Balance & Core class focuses on increasing participants core strength, balance, range of motion, flexibility, and coordination.

We want you to feel how your body is working for you.
Heart Healthy & Balance (45 minutes): This class is for the active adult and will focus on raising your heart rate with functional yet challenging aerobic type movements with active recovery. We will incorporate balance movements and active recovery to bring our rate down throughout the class using balls and bands and a good attitude!!
Beanbag Baseball (60 minutes) : If you like light-hearted competition, this is the game for you. The game is played by pitching bean bags into the holes of a board which indicates which you attained. There are 2 teams and the scoring is like baseball. This game is great for balance and hand/eye coordination.
Chair Yoga (45 minutes) : With the support of a chair, enjoy yoga poses and positions while increasing your overall balance and muscle tone and breath support. Strengthen your body and relax your mind.
Courtyard Rockettes—Seated Tap Dance (45 minutes): The Summit room studio will host this seated tap
dancing class open to beginners and experienced tap dancers. The first half of the class focuses on tap technique exercises while the second half combines moves to create a tap routine. The tappers meet the 2nd and the 4th Wednesday of the month.
Firm & Tone with Becca (45 minutes): Firm & Tone is for the active adult who wants to increase muscle tone and work on cardiovascular health. This class is designed to increase the participants cardiovascular endurance, coordination, muscular strength, and joint stability. Equipment used for this class will vary and may include hand held weights, elastic bands, or balls for the resistance portions of this class. Two levels of this class are available. Level 2 at 9 A.M. will be advanced with more dynamic movements, while Level 1 at 10 A.M. will involve more seated work and have a stronger focus on stability. **On Fridays we will incorporate a balance portion in both levels of this class.
Fitness with Michele (45 minutes): This class will be more of a sit-ercise style class with a combination of flexibility, balance and chair aerobics. Be ready for upbeat tunes and a fun time!
Park Walks (Every Wednesday at 10:30am): Want to get some fresh air and stretch your legs? Every Wednesday at 10:00am we will choose a park in which to walk. Each park will have paved walking paths and places to sit. This outing is for all levels of walkers. Some people enjoy walking to the first bench they see and take in the sights, others go as fast as they can, and the rest of us just go our own pace. September is our last month for park walks. Come while you can!
Sit & Be Fit Fitness Video (30 minutes): A fitness video will be playing in the Summit room that will guide
participants through seated total body workout.
Tai Chi (40 minutes): This class may be done seated or standing. Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness – muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and, to a lesser degree, aerobic conditioning.
