Healthy Living Program

Cornell Wellness offers opportunities for physical fitness and social experiences that are appropriate for every size, shape, age, and ability. These offerings are great for individuals who are first starting a fitness program, have gone through joint replacement, suffer from arthritis, experience lingering joint pain from injury, have physical limitations or disabilities, those who want to improve their balance, fitness, overall well being and more.

Our group fitness classes and social programs embody our vision of inclusion, offer participants individualized attention to be successful, and promote an environment of camaraderie and personal success. Any current Wellness Recreation Member may participate. The group fitness classes have start and end dates; but you can join at any time.

Healthy Living Fitness Consultations
The initial Fitness Consultation is a great way to get started with the Healthy Living Program! It typically lasts about 1 hour. During that time, you and a certified personal trainer will discuss your fitness goals and options. Based on your goals, a personalized exercise plan will be developed. This plan will include the details of how and when you will exercise. The initial Fitness Consultation also often includes a tour of the facility and an explanation of how to access the various perks associated with your Wellness Recreation Membership. To schedule a fitness consultation, either check off the appropriate box on the Wellness Recreation Membership application or contact Keri Johnson by email kaj84@cornell.edu.

Healthy Living Fitness Testing
One of the great benefits Cornell Wellness offers our Wellness Recreation Members is physical fitness testing in a group setting for older adults. This group test follows the Fullerton Functional Fitness Test protocols as well as the NASM Squat Assessment, Trunk Rotation, and Reach Test. The tests are well-researched, recognized internationally, and provide a picture of the overall strength, stamina, flexibility, coordination, balance, and posture of adults aged 60 years old and up. Cornell Wellness believes in the social benefits of exercise and provides the testing in a group atmosphere that is non-competitive and fun. You must have a current Wellness Recreational Membership to participate.
