CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES
FITNESS ACTIVITY PLANNING
Group Fitness Activities at The Oaks are divided between Cardio Classes (to increase cardiovascular capacity, condition the lungs, and burn fat), Tone & Strength Classes (to build lean muscle mass and shape the physique), and Stretch & Flexibility Classes (to promote muscular flexibility, range of motion of joints, balance, coordination, and stress relief). We suggest a foundation of one class of each type per day, adding according to your energy level and interest! If you are deconditioned, or have special physical needs, we suggest that you set up an appointment with one of our Personal Trainers to tailor your time at The Oaks safely.
Our schedule of activities changes regularly. Pick up this week's schedule of classes and times at the Front Desk. All activities subject to change. THE MOST RECENT SCHEDULE
