Active Aging

Our active aging program at Silver Lake is designed to improve the quality of life for all our participants. Whether you’re new to exercise, an avid athlete, or someone that enjoys getting together with others, there is something for you in our program.

One of our goals is to make exercise fun, and by offering a variety of health and fitness programs here at our club, you are bound to find an activity that suits you.

Our classes have been developed to improve strength, agility, stamina and flexibility, which we need to accomplish daily tasks. Land and pool- based classes are offered at convenient times throughout the week. We have social events including potlucks, luncheons, coffee breaks, and educational seminars. If you enjoy racquet sports, we play recreational badminton and pickle ball. For Tennis Members, we offer a USTA Senior (55+) and Super Senior Fall League.

Come Join Us!

Due to the current Coronovirus state regulations we are operating on a modified schedule. Please see the schedule below for offered classes.

These classes are complimentary for our Members and require no registration.

Aqua Motion

This class consists of range of motion, muscle strengthening, and endurance building activities as well as flexibility exercises. It incorporates walking or rebounding in various directions and strides utilizing specific upper body movements. This class will improve agility and range of movement, improve lateral movement, increase core strength, increase balance and body awareness. It is great for those with arthritis, fibromyalgia, joint replacements, post surgery rehab, pre and post natal or for cross training.

Full Body Fitness

Join personal trainer Chrissy Capponi for class in the Group Exercise studio. Class begins with a walking/moving warm up, and  progresses to light strength training, balance and flexibility work. Using balloons and other soft/mobile balls, we play volleyball, soccer and have relays. Come and enjoy the fun!

Water Cross

This class incorporates a cardiovascular workout with movements of running, jumping and bouncing. This class uses the techniques of circuit training and speed intervals and integrates exercises to improve muscular strength, endurance, range of motion, balance, and mobility. Pilates based exercises are included to develop “core strength and length.” The class ends with yoga-style stretching to enhance posture and body awareness. Discover the differences between movement in water and on land. Water workouts are wonderful for the active aging. This class is fun, innovative, and effective.

Yoga Stretch

Design of class procedures and pose demonstrations allows for the use of chairs, stability balls, walls, straps, and blocks. Classes are taught with various modifications and variations. It improves posture and breathing, restoring health to all the systems in the body. Yoga builds strength, range of motion, endurance, balance and stamina. Psychologically, yoga improves concentration, calms the mind and body, expands awareness and teaches patience

Yin Yoga

Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work the muscular “yang” tissues. Yin yoga is a complimentary discipline to a yang practice, working the deeper “yin” tissues of our ligaments, joints and deep fascial networks. Ultimately, increasing our range of motion.

A Yin practice is slow, steady and often stationary. We use pranayama (breathing) techniques to relax the body and mind. Using props, postures are held for several minutes allowing the body to soften gradually while nourishing dense fascia and joints.

Take a break from your daily grind; join us for this quiet, balanced, rejuvenating practice!
