Registration is now open for new Fall 2016 community programs available at the Dexter Wellness Center! Our community programs are open to all, even folks who aren’t currently members. Check out all the exciting opportunities on this season’s program flyer. (The flyer also lists many classes you can explore at the Chelsea Wellness Center, just 8.5 miles from Dexter!)
Here’s a sneak-peek at just a few of the fantastic opportunities available:
Gentle, low-impact exercise for folks with joint or mobility challenges: Increase flexibility and range of motion in our Aquacize with Arthritis class, held in our warm therapy pool starting September 13. If you’re 60+, you can get even more pool time during FREE senior swim, every 2nd and 4th Friday, 4-7pm, year round! Not a water fan? Try the chair-based Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program starting September 16.
Fun and fitness for kids and teens: We have great opportunities to burn some energy with friends after you put in a long day at school! Participants use body-weight exercises and age-appropriate equipment to increase strength, stamina, and agility. There’s a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class for teens, as well as a separate HIIT class for elementary-age kids, both starting Monday, September 12.
Lunchtime pickup basketball: Drop in for some hoops on your lunch hour! Pickup games offer a fun, efficient workout, leaving you recharged for the rest of the afternoon. Players meet at noon in the DWC gymnasium Tuesday and Thursday for an hour and a half, starting September 6. DWC members can attend for free, but if you’re not a member you can buy a special lunchtime basketball pass.
Supportive special-needs fitness class: This fun & unique class provides supportive fitness activities for special-needs kids and adults through gentle, caring instruction. The class features energetic rhythm and movement, jumping, skipping, lifting, running, stretching, ball play, mat activities, and more! New session starts Saturday, September 17.

These programs and many more are waiting for you! Space is limited, so be sure to call the center at 734-580-2500 to register.
