Our fitness staff will assist you in creating a program that meets your individual fitness needs. So come join us in our journey to be, EverFit!

At Cascade, we’re dedicated to making sure that our residents lead as healthy and active of a lifestyle as possible. For this reason, we have designed a special fitness program – The EverFit Club – that was specifically created with our residents in mind. The EverFit Club views good physical health as a lifelong commitment to everlasting fitness. And that’s exactly how it got its name.

For some individuals, fitness has always been a part of their lives, while it simply becomes an important part of other’s lives as they deal with the stress of their aging body. The goal of The EverFit Club is to help seniors embrace an active lifestyle and, in doing so, improve and strengthen their hearts, bodies and balance.

Fitness can involve a wide array of activities, from exercising in a gym or walking a mile each morning to simply working in the garden a few days a week. What matters most is that you are keeping your body active on a regular basis. The EverFit Club has been designed with a variety of different fitness programs that meet the wide range of needs for retirement living, assisted living and our memory care residents.

The EverFit Club has multiple opportunities to make it easy for our residents to maintain an active lifestyle, no matter what their fitness preference.

EverFit offers:

  • Strength & Balance Classes
  • Aquatic Fitness· Walking Programs
  • Tai Chi
  • Low Impact Aerobics
  • President’s Challenge
  • Chair Aerobics
  • Dance Classes (Ballroom & Line Dancing)
  • Boot Camps
  • Cardio Conditioning
  • Recreational Sports (Golf, Skiing, Swimming, Bocce Ball & Volleyball)

And, of course, no fitness program is complete without a state-of-the-art fitness center, offering the latest equipment to meet all residents’ rehabilitation and fitness needs. Our fitness staff will take the time to work with our residents one-on-one to train them on how to appropriately and safely use every piece of equipment. Personal trainers are also available to help residents develop a workout regimen that is specific to their needs and abilities.

Regardless of a resident’s current fitness level, The EverFit Club will help him or her to both establish and meet fitness goals, and hopefully lead a happier and healthier lifestyle!
