Daily Fitness Opportunities
Goddard House offers a wide array of daily group fitness classes and operates two fitness studios for individual training in our Traditional Assisted Living and Olmsted Place Memory Support neighborhoods. We are deeply committed to offering daily fitness opportunities. A variety of classes are led by both certified personal trainers and specially trained staff members. Our Fitness Studio and larger activity spaces are used for fitness classes, while our grounds and surrounding neighborhood allow us to offer seasonal walking groups.

We are extremely fortunate to have Chris Parchmann, MS, CSCS, NSCA-CPT, oversee fitness at Goddard House. Chris is the owner of Forever Fit, a company that specializes in senior fitness programs. Forever Fit offers a high level expertise, customized for older adults, that isn’t always available in senior fitness programs.
