In the past, retirement communities offered little in the way of fitness programs. Today’s retirement communities have changed the script, providing not just a place to live, but a place to live better. A part of this change has been the improvements to fitness facilities for seniors.
Cambridge Village of Apex, North Carolina, has partnered with WakeMed to bring residents an advanced and accessible fitness center geared towards encouraging active and healthy lifestyles.
Stay Active with WakeMed Healthworks Fitness
The WakeMed Healthworks Fitness Center is conveniently located on the first floor of Cambridge Village of Apex, North Carolina. By being on-site the fitness center is easy to access for all residents.
Wellness Center Amenities
When designing the WakeMed Healthworks Fitness Center, we made sure that it offered a variety of choices, each targeted at the specific health needs of seniors. Whether seniors are already active, just getting back into fitness, or have limited mobility, there are options for them. The fitness center offers:
- Elliptical machines
- Free weights
- Strength training equipment
WakeMed also offers a heated, indoor pool for laps and aquatic exercise. Aquatic exercises are low-impact and easy on joints, making them ideal for seniors. Residents also have access to a relaxing steam room.
Need some help guiding your workout routine? Work with one of WakeMed’s qualified personal trainers. You can also sign up for a variety of exercise classes in aquatics, yoga, and more for a chance to enjoy exercise with your peers.
Fitness Center Benefits
The benefits of regular exercise are clear, and for seniors, these advantages are even more significant. Exercising improves mobility, general well-being, extends your lifespan, and aids in the healing process. However, the advantages are more than just physical.
Staying physically active can also help seniors stay mentally healthy by keeping them sharp and improving self-esteem. Exercise can also be a social activity for many, giving you opportunities to meet friends in classes or at the gym.
With the extensive, on-site WakeMed Healthworks Fitness Center, our residents can better take advantage of the benefits of fitness and regular physical activity. Schedule a visit to Cambridge Village of Apex, North Carolina, to see our fitness center in action.
