Seniors who work out on a daily basis are rejoicing as the popular fitness room at the Senior Center is opened after a two and a half month refurbishment project was completed.
The project included the removing and replacing of the old floor and subfloor, painting and patching the walls and replacing ceiling tiles. In addition, new fitness equipment was purchased, replacing equipment that was in use when the Senior Center first opened nearly three decades ago.
With an average annual attendance of more than 15,000 patrons, City officials sought out funding to replace the aging equipment and give the workout room a new look. With 18 new work out machines in place, Seniors now have a state-of-the-art work out facility to attain their fitness goals or just to remain healthy.
Orientations for the Fitness Room take place throughout the day at the Center during regular business hours. For information on the Senior Center Fitness Room, call the Center at 562.948.4844.
