When it comes to older adults, muscular strength is directly connected to functional ability, balance control and independent management of everyday activity.
The right type of muscle training helps maintain functional ability. The Fitness Center at Episcopal Homes features HUR Equipment with Smart Card Technology to support you in your your fitness goals.
HUR’s Health and fitness strength equipment was designed in cooperation with different universities and leading physiology and biomechanics experts. This pneumatic air-resistance technology allows older adults to safely build their “Functional Fitness” by increasing and maintaining their ROM, re-educate and strengthen muscles, increase static and dynamic endurance and increase bone density.
A CPT (Certified Personal Trainer) is available daily to help you as you need.
