Wellness

The Wellness Team at Good Shepherd Village offers a variety of ways to help you achieve an optimal level of health and fitness. Research has shown that starting, or continuing, a regular exercise program can delay and reduce the effects of aging, and in some cases, even reverse some of the declines already brought on by previous lack of exercise.

The Enhanced Wellness Program at Good Shepherd Village focuses on three areas of functional physical fitness; cardiovascular health, strength training and flexibility.

No matter your age or current physical condition, you can benefit from participating in our wellness program. Our Fitness Trainers look forward to working with each and every resident at Good Shepherd Village and their unique blend of personalities will make your path to optimal physical health enjoyable and fun.
