Vista Residents Stay Fit and Vibrant with New Wellness Classes

In addition to beautiful apartment homes, on-site dining, and breathtaking views, The Vista, our premier continuing care retirement community, boasts a versatile and extensive schedule of fitness programs and wellness classes to keep residents active, healthy, and vibrant.

“Exercise classes give residents a reason to get up, get out, and get exercise,” said Ellen DeBel, Wellness Coordinator at The Vista. “It also offers an opportunity for socialization. Every time they come to a class, it’s about more than getting physically fit – it’s about seeing and interacting with their neighbors.”

New Classes with Valley Lifestyles

The Vista is excited to announce our new partnership with Valley Health Lifestyles, Valley Health Systems’ state-of-the-art fitness center. We are adding three new classes to the roster at The Vista – Senior Fitness, Zumba Gold, and Yoga – led by Valley Lifestyles’ expert instructors.

“This is a great benefit for Vista residents because these instructors have so much expertise,” said Ellen. “We’re bringing in people that are specifically trained to teach exercise and wellness classes.”

Senior Fitness: This fun and energetic class features low-impact cardio combined with exercises to increase strength, flexibility, balance, and stamina. Easy-to-follow movements improve coordination, the use of light weights builds strength, and a thorough stretch increases flexibility.

Zumba Gold: This low-intensity Zumba workout uses dance moves to improve balance, range of motion, and coordination.

Yoga: A moderately paced yoga workout, this class features strengthening poses and focused breathing to help you improve your balance, boost flexibility and stability, and increase strength, as well as relax and find your center.
