Elements is a place you can have fun while getting fit.
Members can experience a lot of different options at Elements when it comes to forms of exercise. Some highlights include an innovative fitness facility with cardio equipment, strengthening machines that focus on all areas of the body, and free weights. Elements also offers water classes that vary in intensity- some focusing on those with arthritis and others that are more intense that get your heart pumping. Of course, there are classes out of water that range from low to high intensity. Elements even offers one on one specialized training to help people that need a little extra guidance or encouragement, or for those that have more specific needs. From chair yoga and balance classes to more intense classes like Stretch & Flex and Circuit classes, there is something that benefits every BODY!
Attending fitness classes, water aerobics, or simply utilizing workout equipment is important to overall health, but can also assist in staying fit and mobile as one ages. At Elements Wellness centers, find your center of balance. According to a Harvard Health article, older adults over the age of 65 who regularly exercise can decrease their likelihood of falling by 23% (Health.Harvard.edu, 2019). In the aging population, exercise has also been shown to prevent disease, improve mental health and well-being, strengthen social ties, and improve cognitive function.
