Conditioning/Sports/Classes

AEROBICS: Aerobics meets each weekday morning from 8:30 – 9:30 A.M, in the upstairs area. The VCR/TV with video tapes is used for the routine. As one member puts it, “if you can walk, you can join us.” The activity is a little more vigorous than the exercise group, so come dressed accordingly.   Also Walking Aerobics.

BADMINTON: This activity is as an active indoor sport and has been meeting Wednesday night at 6:00 P.M. prior to volleyball in Viking Hall.  

EXERCISE: “A Place to Stay Young” could well be the motto of Center members who meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings for general exercise, in the Viking Hall. The exercises are done with simple props such as sawed off broomsticks and hand weights. The taped routine that is used, is neither aerobic nor weight-reducing but is designed to keep the body’s many joints loose and limber…a must for senior citizens. It is approved for senior citizen use. The sessions begin at 8:30 A.M. and lasts for one hour. A break is taken midway, and there is always time for a joke or two. Come join the group, you’ll be glad you did. Passive or active exercise equipment is also available for member use in the upstairs area. Introductory instruction is required prior to use of the automated equipment. Exercise bikes, treadmills, weight lift and rowing machines are also available in this area. The upstairs exercise area is also open 6 A.M. to 8 P.M. seven days a week.  

LINE DANCING CLASSES: A fun activity/class is in line dancing which is held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Check the calendar in the Senior News as to when the various line dancing classes are offered. New “beginning” line dance classes are started twice a year for first timers.

PICKELBALL: This is a relatively new activity and has become one of our most popular sports. They meet seven days a week at various times.  Check the ACTIVITY SCHEDULE for times.

POOL/SNOOKER: The Center has four regular pool tables and two snooker tables. The pool room is open from 8 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. week-days and Saturdays. The Center has an ample supply of cue sticks. Ladies and men players are both welcome.

TABLE TENNIS (Ping Pong): The Center has folding table tennis tables available which are set up on the second floor of the new addition. Equipment is available upstairs if you wish to play. This is one of the events in the Senior Olympics and you may practice at the Center anytime. Players meet Mondays from 1-5 P.M., Tuesdays from 11-2 P.M., and Wednesdays and Fridays from 2-5 P.M.  

T’AI CHI CHIH: Meets each Monday and Friday morning form 10 – 11 A.M. in the upstairs area. The VCR/TV with video tapes is used for the routines. As one member puts it, “it’s like moving in slow motion.” The activity is not a vigorous exercise, so come dressed accordingly.
