Pickleball- NEW
Enhanced Fitness

 

Moderate-impact classes with high-impact results.

Enhance®Fitness is an evidence-based group exercise program for older adults that uses simple, easy-to-learn movements that motivate individuals (particularly those with arthritis) to stay active throughout their lives.

Here are some of the changes our participants have noticed:

  • More energy

  • Better balance

  • Increases in the upper body and lower body strength

  • More flexibility and range of motion

  • Better sleep

  • More feelings of happiness

  • Sense of independence

 

In addition to the physical benefits, research has shown that, among older adults who participate in Enhance®Fitness, health costs were lowered each year by close to $1,000.

 

Our aim: To help you feel better.
Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises, and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults. Those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; they will never have to do anything that hurts. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and increase the weight they use for strength training at their own pace.

Class Times
11:00 am every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at the Mansfield Area Y

Aqua Fit

Aqua Fit gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. This class takes place in our heated indoor pools. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during this shallow water class. Integrating fun and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Fit blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
