Fitness

Buy the Fitness Pass and come to any class you want, whenever you want!

The pass covers you for any 20 sessions of exercise classes.  Use the same pass for any class and purchase a new pass when yours is filled up.  With the Fitness Pass, you don’t have to worry about missing classes due to illness, doctor appointments, vacation, etc.  We hope it encourages you to try something new!

Try a class for free!

At MSHL, we want you to find the class that best suites you and your needs.  To help you find what exercise class will work best for you, MSHL encourages you to try one session of each of our classes on us! 

That’s right, try it free of charge, even if you already have a Fitness Pass.  The first time you try a new class, it is free to you.

Fitness Classes

Enhance Fitness is an evidence-based exercise program designed, studied, and proven effective at improving overall functional fitness and well-beling. It is geared toward older adults (although all are welcome) and can be done standing up or sitting down. MSHL has four certified fitness instructors focusing on cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, flexibility and balance training. All of the movements are designed to accommodate mobility limitations while providing an excellent “whole body” work-out.

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Instructors: Jennifer Michalak

Mondays and Wednesdays at 1:45 – 2:45 p.m.

Instructors: Beverly Robinson

Martial Arts at its core is about building self-defense skills. It improves your ability to concentrate & focus, motor skills, and self-confidence.  This is not a combat class but to learn to move & stretch effectively.

Mondays at 12:45-1:30 pm

Instructor: Richard Sheff

Sit Fit is MSHL’s new half hour seated fitness class.  Stretch and tone your muscles in this seated class to your favorite classic tunes.

Tuesdays at 1:00-1:30pm

Instructor: Beverly Robinson

As we get older, muscles tend to stiffen, our joints lose their range of motion and we become more susceptible to chronic problems such as osteoporosis, arthritis and heart disease. Yoga can help slow down the effects of the ageing process by maintaining muscle softness and flexibility, keeping the mind alert and awake, encouraging relaxation and strengthening muscles and joints. Its multi-pronged approach can encourage the body, mind and spirit to remain healthy and strong while reducing the effects of many age-related issues.

This class will adapt to the needs of its students, starting most participants in a chair and targeting what you need most.  This is not a “sweat it out” kind of class, but you will feel the stretches push you and see the benefits as you progress.

Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Instructor: Janea LeBar

Enhance Fitness – do it sitting down or standing up!
