Garden City Community Centre Seniors/55+ Program
Garden City's Seniors/55+ Program is now entering it's 4th year and we are going stronger than ever. Our instructors are certified experienced individuals who are familiar with the hurdles associated with exercise as we grow older. Whether you are 55 and newly retired or well into your golden years there is something here for you!
NEW THIS FALL
Circuit 55+ - If you are looking for a bootcamp specially tailored for 55+ .... THIS IS IT! We are very excited to announce that Stephanie Relke will be joining our program as our Circuit instructor. Stephanie brings with her a very strong background in fitness and nutrition. If you have been active, these classes will allow you to step up your fitness level or alternatively Stephanie can provide modifications to suit any beginner fitness level. Intensity is all up to you!
Fix Me Fridays - On two Fridays per month a Physiotherapist from NRG Athletes Therapy Fitness will visit and spend 45 minutes talking about different issues that older adults experience and how to be pro-active when it comes to taking care of your musculoskeletal system. At home exercise and stretching movements will be taught in class. We are very excited to offer this informative and interactive well being session to our programming. Anyone who has (or wants to prevent) functional/balance/pain issues should make this part of their regimen
NOTE: This year we have streamlined the programming and will be eliminating A & B passes altogether. Pilates has been discontinued as we could not find a certified instructor that could accomodate daytime hours.
SENIORS 55+ SKATE - Will commence in October. You will need skates and we strongly encourage helmet use!
Garden City Community Centre is pleased to offer programming for Seniors/55+ Retirees in the Seven Oaks area. The Seniors/55+ Program was established to help create affordable activity for Seniors and Retirees in our community. By offering exercise, dance, yoga, and various gaming activities we hope to improve the overall mental and physical health of our participants. Participants are encouraged to help lead and promote the program by teaching and assisting new participants, car pooling, and positive reinforcement.
The Program is guided by our Seniors/55+ Council which is comprised of Seniors currently active in the Program. The Council's mandate is to ensure quality programming which meets the needs of our area and its participants.
