Physical exercise is one of the key ingredients to living a healthy life in retirement. Especially for seniors, getting moving wards off injuries, keeps hearts healthier, builds strength and reduces excess weight gain. And those are just the physical benefits.
Exercise is just as important for our mental health and emotional and social wellbeing. Getting the most out of your workout can be as simple as spending it in good company. Studies show that people are more likely to stick with a workout routine if they commit to doing it with a friend or family member. And, let’s be honest, it’s more fun that way, too.
Exercising with friends and family, and having fun doing it, is a recipe for an active, healthy, and happy retirement.
A Space to Build Health in Community
Working out together, though, is about more than losing weight or getting in shape. It’s also about the relationships you have with the loved ones you walk, run, and swim with. Exercising with friends and family is one of the best ways to stay connected while staying on top of your fitness goals.
There are so many ways for seniors to get active that finding an activity that works for you and your workout partner is easy. Some of the safest and most enjoyable activities for seniors looking to stay active are:
- Low Impact Fitness Classes
At Pleasant View Communities, we created our on-campus fitness center, PVFiT, to welcome residents, their families, and the entire Manheim community to join us.
Starting the Year Off Strong, Together
PVFiT is an extension of our larger mission to help build a healthy, vibrant community. And that community extends well beyond the walls of our main campus. In fact, what we’re most excited about is seeing residents and their families getting together for an early morning swim in our saltwater pool or joining one of our fitness classes together in the evening.
Just a few of the health and fitness amenities you and your family can enjoy at PVFiT include:
- Fitness center with cardio and strength training equipment
- Fitness studio offering group classes
- Saltwater pool with aquatic classes, lap swimming, and open pool swim
- Hot tub
- Personal trainers
Focused on Your Health
We’re helping residents and the community live full and active lives. It’s about more than just fitness, we’re building social connections, improving mental and emotional wellbeing, and having fun.
We welcome you and your loved ones to visit and take a tour of PVFiT Club. You can try a solo workout, meet our personal trainers, and see all the ways you can exercise together with friends and family right here on campus. Contact us to learn more and schedule a tour.
