About our fitness instructors

Our Gentle Fitness classes are led by certified, passionate and caring instructors who have additional training in special conditions. Sessions are geared and adjusted to your level of ability.  

What are classes like?

Level 1 classes are mostly seated, with some standing balance work. The focus is on posture and fall prevention.

Level 2 classes offer a choice of seated or standing activities. The focus is on functional capacity and independence.

Level 3 classes are active and on-your-feet. You'll be moving the whole time while avoiding the high impact of general fitness classes. 

Come prepared

Please bring:

  • Clean, indoor athletic shoes that have not been worn outdoors
  • A water bottle to stay hydrated
  • A swimsuit for aqua fit classes
