Aging Partners Director Randy Jones announced today that the Aging Partners Health and Fitness Center will move to the 9th and "J" Street Building, 555 S. 9th St. The tentative date for the move is November 1. The Center is currently at 233 S. 10th Street.
"We will continue offering the same exercise and cardio options our clients currently enjoy, and the same welcoming staff to greet them and work with them," Jones said. "The move will also allow us to make more efficient use of the space we have available."
On-street parking will be available to fitness center clients along "J" and 8th streets. There is also a sheltered bus stop just north of the fitness center on 9th Street.
The fitness center and Aging Partners Health and Fitness programming will continue operating at the current location until the move. Other agency program staff for Handyman and Lifeline emergency response system services, currently housed in the Health and Fitness Center, will also be relocated to 9th and "J" streets.
The Aging Partners Health and Fitness Center is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. weekdays and provides a variety of exercise and cardio equipment. Fitness, wellness and fall prevention classes are offered throughout the community in addition to those held at the fitness center. Aging Partners Health and Fitness also provides Senior Health Clinics at the Downtown Senior Center and the Vermeer Education Center at St. Marks's Church.
