Keeping fit when the weather is frightful

Some went to the retirement community’s well-equipped Fitness Center to work out in the classic manner, on stationary bikes and treadmills, stair-step and rowing machines and the weight machine. Others took a plunge into the indoor heated pool, joining water aerobics classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays or going for regular lap swims.

In bad weather or good, residents also can choose from a variety of classes that cater to all levels of fitness and abilities. Assisted Living residents, for example, are loving a new chair yoga program, Butler-Burkhart says. Sit and Be Fit classes also are offered for Assisted Living residents.

An instructor visits the community every Saturday morning to lead a class in tai chi, an ancient practice that has proven health benefits and is especially good for achieving better balance and preventing falls.

For those who enjoy working out with others, Fitness Director Mike leads an exercise class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday that covers the key elements of fitness—aerobics, strength training, stretching and balance. The social interaction can be just as beneficial as the moving and grooving in these classes.

Ingleside at Rock Creek, a continuing care retirement community, views physical wellness as one of the dimensions of overall wellness, which also includes spiritual, social, emotional, occupational, creative, environmental and financial wellness. Physical wellness allows us to perform our daily activities with the spirit of joyfulness, without too much fatigue or stress, to maintain our independence and pursue our passions.

That’s why Ingleside at Rock Creek offers a variety of options for achieving and maintaining physical wellness and promotes its importance. It’s because we believe our residents are entitled to a happy, healthy, active and engaged retirement lifestyle.
