Silver Sneakers and Silver and Fit
For some time Silver Sneakers has been honored at IronOaks Fitness Center and starting in 2014 Silver and Fit for Blue Cross Blue Shield and Aetna members will be honored and members will be able to take advantage of all the classes and benefits offered. Pam and her staff are available to counsel with members and provide proper form and technique counsel and demonstration. These services help to avoid injuries and maximize the workout to the age and health of each individual. This is a free service not found in many other workout centers.
Free Weights & Cardio
The center has had free weights for about a year but Pam has added heavier dumb bells, kettle bells and a TRX suspension trainer designed for stretching and range of motion exercises. And arriving shortly is her newest dual tower cross cable machine! Pam’s vision to expand the center for all populations is appealing to many of the younger demographic moving into Sun Lakes. You will find a wide range of cardio machines and weights for any level of exercise you choose. Workshops are taught by Pam and are free of charge to members. Or you can do the outdoor circuit where Pam leads a group through the neighborhood walking paths where you can enjoy the outdoors, fresh air and sunshine with a group of friends and neighbors. And if that isn’t enough sign up for one of the group fitness classes where you will find everything from yoga (for all levels), cardio strength, Tai Chi, line dancing, cardio kickbox and more. For only $5.00 per class sign up for Zumba or NIA (non-impact aerobics). All other classes are included with your membership.
