Fitness at Goddard House

Daily Fitness Opportunities

At Goddard House, we believe it is of great importance to provide our residents options to stay physically and mentally fit. We have two fitness studios and terrific instructors. Many of our residents are fitness forward and routinely enjoy weekly trainer one-on-ones, daily morning exercises with their favorite instructors and dancersizing to hit songs. We offer fitness options in two designated studios for both our Traditional Assisted Living Residents and our Olmsted Place Memory Support Neighborhoods. We also create regimented weekly fitness calendars, which allow for consistency to support memory care while offering different fitness classes everyday to give residents options.
