About the Service


Fitted with professional equipment for aerobic and heart-lung capacity work, muscle strengthening and stretching exercises, the Center, staffed by volunteer professionals with medical back up, works with each participant to develop an exercise program suited to their individual needs. Among the available equipment are treadmills, bicycles, stretch bands, exercise balls, etc. All equipment may be adapted for use by those in wheelchairs. Each machine has a built-in control to limit the maximum exertion to a pre-set ability level.

Physical exercise at any age is a positive factor in increasing longevity, promoting general well-being, improving balance and thus minimizing falls. Registration at the Center requires the consent of a medical doctor. Please bring comfortable clothing, sport shoes and a towel.
