Work on our new, state-of-the-art Fitness Pavilion is coming along well. After having the concrete foundation poured for the underground parking garage, steel beams are being placed, giving shape to this exciting undertaking!
The new Fitness Pavilion will include a larger aerobics floor, a push sled and turf strip, state-of-the-art cardio equipment, extensive weightlifting options, suspension trainers, slide board, a bounce wall and flooring for slam exercise. OceanView’s Fitness and Development departments are working closely with Matrix Fitness – one of the foremost providers of fitness equipment and technology in the world.
OceanView’s Fitness Manager, Kate Foley, MS NSCA-CPT, says that “While the equipment has been carefully selected to grow with the strength, power, balance and flexibility gains of the OceanView population, this new fitness facility will look and feel more like one you’d expect for collegiate athletics, rather than a ‘fitness center for seniors.’”
Kate and her team of trainers collectively hold master’s and bachelor’s degrees in exercise sciences, as well as 15 certifications in personal training and exercise programs. OceanView’s residents are able to continue their active lifestyles through retirement, benefitting from the Fitness Department’s science-based programming design. Kate says, “OceanView has always been a leader in retirement living, and will soon be on the cutting-edge of what fitness means for those 55 and better.”
