3 Ways to Workout at Roland Park Place
At Roland Park Place, we support our residents’ wellness physically, intellectually, spiritually socially, emotionally, and nutritionally. How we use our bodies in our day-to-day lives are differ from resident to resident. Many residents keep their bodies moving with hobbies such as gardening and biking. Our gym and fitness program offers three different ways to work out so all have an enjoyable way to support their body.
Working out can support bone density and muscle mass so residents can enjoy their hobbies and lifestyle for longer. We partner with NIFS to provide fitness specialists to manage the Fitness Center and teach group classes. The fitness features resistance and cardio machines that our fitness specialist will guide you through. They will also provide you with a complimentary workout plan to meet your wellness goals.
If spending time in the water is more ideal than working out in the gym, our indoor, heated pool is open year-round for our swimmers. Every weekday morning, there is a water fitness class for those to jump-start their day with low-impact aerobics. The water provides support for joints while you get a cardiovascular workout. During the day a lifeguard is present for those who swim laps or for those who want to relax in the water.
On dry land, there is a wide range of group exercise classes from yoga to line dancing! Group exercises are not only great for getting your blood flowing, it is also an opportunity to grow your community. Group exercise classes are accessible to everyone and include modifications for different mobility needs. Residents in memory care have the opportunity to attend specialized group fitness classes as well.
Physical health is just one aspect of our holistic approach to wellness. In the next series of blog posts, each aspect of our wellness approach will be explored.
