LifeStyleRx—ValleyCare Health System’s award-winning, 70,000-square-foot wellness center builds healthy bodies with workout machines, a multitude of group exercise classes, and medically based services from exercise physiologists, registered dietitians, and certified personal trainers. The tidy fitness center welcomes visitors with an NCAA-size gym, antigravity treadmills, and strength-training equipment that makes muscles burn like an insult uttered by a sarcastic fire swallower. As kids frolic and tumble in a childcare center and Youth FitZone, adults amble around an indoor walking track, bask in a sauna and whirlpool, or catch up with friends in the cafe and lounge.
The center’s certified instructors lead 115 weekly fitness classes designed to build strength, endurance, and the ability to move furniture with one’s mind. Designed for new exercisers, seniors, and participants with chronic conditions such as diabetes and arthritis, one-hour FitnessRx classes build strength and flexibility with free-weight exercises with easy-to-follow calisthenics. Zumba sessions teem with Latin-inspired dance moves and rhythmic music from around the world. All-level yoga classes promote relaxation and mental clarity with deep stretches and focusing exercises, and Aqua Flow takes yoga to the depths of a warm indoor pool that challenges muscles with waves of gentle resistance.
Though LifeStyleRx sometimes offers online discounts, today’s Groupon is still the best deal available.
