Exercise Education

If you are 18 years old and older, come to one of our two exercise education rooms to learn how to exercise and participate in a structured exercise program. The exercise sessions are supervised and guided by trained staff and volunteers, who focus on teaching safety and proper technique. The program is free and is available at our two main locations.

Exercise Classes

Exercise classes are group sessions where an instructor guides all participants through an entire exercise routine that includes a warm-up, resistance training, cardio, cool down and stretching.

Walking Groups

Led by volunteers, enjoy the benefits of walking in a fun, safe, and supervised walking experience suitable for all fitness levels, enjoying the outdoors (weather permitting) at the same time.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation group sessions are led by an instructor and are designed to help you reduce stress and anxiety.
