We're Focused on Wellness

A holistic approach

Wellness isn't just about fitness. At Friendship Village, we take a holistic approach that addresses mind, body and spirit—through programs designed to enhance physical abilities, promote activities of daily living and improve quality of life.

Our Friendship Village lifestyle incorporates the six unique aspects of wellness that contribute to long–term health and happiness: Physical Health, Social Engagement, Life–Long Learning, Spiritual Enlightenment, Nutritional Well-Being, and Emotional Enrichment.

Winner of the silver Pinnacle Award®

Our wellness program is nationally recognized—winning the prestigious silver Pinnacle Award. The award affirms the top senior organizations in the U.S. that support healthy aging through whole-person wellness programming.

Fitness and Aquatic Center

One of the focal points of Friendship Village life is our state–of–the–art Fitness and Aquatic Center, which houses a pool and a fully outfitted fitness facility. It includes a multi-purpose room for stretching, Tai Chi and yoga classes; hydrotherapy spa and sauna.

Fitness programming for every age and need

Staffed by trained and certified exercise specialists, Friendship Village offers group classes and personal training that make it fun to stay active. In addition, our programs can help prevent the need for rehabilitation services and can improve recovery time if rehabilitation is ever needed. Many of our programs address age-related physical issues—such as arthritis, posture, and flexibility.

Some of our popular ‘out-of-the-box’ offerings include:

  • ForeverFit: A CrossFit–inspired, low–impact circuit class, which can be customized to any fitness level.

  • Balance I/II: Beginner and intermediate classes focus on core– and lower-body strength.
  • Joyful Joints Aqua: A full–body aquatic class for those with joint pain and arthritis.
  • Special events/Initiatives: A wide range of fun offerings throughout the year, including: Step challenges, National Cyber Cycle challenges, bocce ball, fishing derby, home run derby, Silver Games, scavenger hunts, Biggest Loser weight-loss competition, pie toss, snow tubing, indoor sky diving, archery, camping, horseback riding, go-karting, laser tag, water volleyball and more.

It’s all included!
