Take advantage of our full-size heated indoor lap pool featuring floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for plenty of natural light, which creates a calm and inviting atmosphere. The Fitness Center is equipped with aerobic machines such as ellipticals, spin bikes, treadmills, and ergometers. The fitness center also includes a weight-lifting area featuring free weights and stationary equipment. The aerobics room features daily workout classes and professional coaching from certified trainers. At New Horizons at Marlborough, we believe that fitness should be available to everyone, which is why all activities in the fitness and aerobics center are available without any additional charge.
Popular Exercises for Seniors at New Horizons at Marlborough
Many residents who take advantage of our fitness programs include a mix of cardio and weights in order to strengthen all components of the body. Popular exercises include non-impact aerobic activity such as swimming, cycling, rowing, and yoga. We have also seen an increased interest in free weight exercise programs. In the warmer weather, we have group exercise programs outdoors, “under the tent.”
For seniors, it’s especially important to maintain muscle mass and flexibility in order to avoid issues such as osteoporosis, fractures, and even slip-and-fall accidents down the road. Not only does a routine exercise program help improve your health but it also improves your mood and immune system. As always, New Horizons at Marlborough puts your safety first. If you have any questions about our exercise programs or fitness center hours of operation, please contact us at 508-460-5200.
