Fitness and wellness are inextricably connected here at Roland Park Place.
Fitness, Aquatics & Dance
Every Resident can enhance the quality of his or her life at Roland Park Place through regular land-based or water exercise. Health benefits include prevention of diseases, decreasing the risk of falls and strokes, improved sleep, decreased blood pressure, increased flexibility, and range of motion, soothing painful joints, strengthening and relaxing muscles, and improving mood and general well-being. We believe you can’t put a price tag on physical fitness, which is why these wellness initiatives are all included in the monthly service fee. That means Residents have unlimited access to all wellness programming at no additional charge.
Maintaining autonomy and independence at the highest functional level for all Residents is a key component of the wellness initiative at Roland Park Place. We know that active aging can extend healthy life expectancy and quality of life.
Roland Park Place is an active partner to Residents seeking well-being, and the Fitness Center is where the journey to balanced wellness begins by offering expansive opportunities for Residents to remain physically strong, independent, and mobile. Fitness classes are offered six days a week and address senior specific challenges such as balance, strength, arthritis, and osteoporosis. A Resident walking club offers new and exciting opportunities to get moving while taking in the sights of Charm City. Additionally, our certified senior fitness specialists take care of educating Residents on the latest, most effective, and most enjoyable methods for exercising in a fun and responsible way.
With all of the Roland Park Place fitness amenities included in the monthly service fee, there is no reason not to take full advantage of all of the wonderful health benefits of physical activity.
The Aquatics Program at Roland Park Place includes group fitness classes in the pool five mornings a week. The large heated therapy pool is used not only for recreational swimming but for the soothing, relaxing, and therapeutic benefits of water exercise such as water walking and water aerobics.
Included in the monthly service fee, water-based exercise is known to relieve pain and stiffness, increase functional mobility and circulation, as well as improve balance and coordination.
The Aquatics Center is also available for free swim and family time in the afternoons and Saturday mornings. The Aquatics team welcomes Residents’ families to engage in water exercise together, even if just recreationally.
A perfect blend of social interaction, leisure time, and exercise, Roland Park Place’s dance studio offers dance class options for all levels of experience. Discovering the pleasures and virtues of regular exercise while moving to music, Roland Park Place’s dance studio offers a variety of dance classes designed with Residents in mind to connect mental well-being to physical activity.
