Fitness from Home
Gyms have reopened and while that is good news for some, not everyone is comfortable in heading back just yet. If you're still wary of going to the gym due to the pandemic, but are still looking to have some healthy safe workouts, check out the options below for exercise programs and exercises you can do safely at home!

Also keep an eye out for the next round of fitness programming through the Township that will be starting in March!
Silver Sneakers Program

Silver Sneakers is a great fitness program that is extremely helpful at keeping seniors in shape! By partnering with many local gyms across the country and combining that with memberships for those that qualify, they make it easy to work-out. Beyond that, they've established a number of online classes that are easily accessible from home!
Silver & Fit

Very similar to the Silver Sneakers program, Silver&Fit make it even easier to access their home workout programs. Check out their site below or one of their workout videos on their Youtube channel. You can find an example to the left!
YMCA

The YMCA has been a mainstay in the fitness industry for closing in on 200 years, so they certainly know what they are doing! They have a lot of knowledge and resources available, even going beyond simply fitness resources. Try out these introductory at home exercises: Rise and Shine, Weights, and Resistance Tube. They have a lot more to offer, but require a membership to access more. Follow the link below to see what other resources they have to offer!
