New Health And Fitness Center, Health Education Programs Focus on Fitness, Injury Prevention and Disease Management
Aging Partners’ mission is to enhance daily living, expand personal choices and to educate the community in an effort to ensure the independence and full life of the people we serve. With our new Fitness Center in Lincoln at 9th and “J” streets, and through our many exercise and wellness classes conducted throughout Lincoln, Lancaster County and the other seven counties we serve, Aging Partners encourages seniors to take measures that decrease risk, promote optimum health and encourage independent living.
The Aging Partners’ Fitness Center, located at 555 S. 9th St., offers health education, exercise classes and new fitness equipment. A certified personal trainer is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., or by appointment to help seniors create an exercise routine with each individual's abilities and goals in mind. There is a $10 suggested monthly donation for age 60 and over and a $15 fee for under age 60. For most classes, there is a $4 per class suggested contribution for age 60 and over or a $5 per class fee for under age 60. Punch cards are available and pre-registration is required for all classes. View or download a flyer with descriptions, times, and locations of community health education and fitness classes here.
