A new YMCA Signature Wellness program, Enhance Fitness was launched at the Cheshire Community YMCA in May 2015.  Our Y is one of only 65 YMCAs in the US offering the program.  Enhance Fitness has been nationally recognized by the Centers for Disease Control, the U S Department of Health and Human Services, the U S Administration on Aging and the National Council on Aging.  With a generous grant from the Connecticut Community Foundation, we were able to purchase equipment and train staff to deliver this senior fitness/arthritis management program. 

Participants meet three times per week for an hour of exercise focusing on reducing arthritis symptoms while improving endurance, stamina, muscle strength, flexibility and balance.  After the first sixteen week session, participants were reassessed and all showed improvement in one or more areas tested.  For more information on Enhance Fitness, contact Donna Paxton@dpaxton@sccymca.org.
