5 Reasons Why Adaptive Fitness Could Be Right for You

January 11th, 2022

Have you been thinking about going to a gym but don’t know if it’s right for you? Maybe you are physically inactive, have a disability, feel uneasy about your fitness journey, need adaptive equipment, or just don’t know where to start. Turnstone offers a unique fitness experience that meets our clients where they are at and provides equipment, resources, and staff to reach your goals. We believe physical health is important for everyone, which is why we provide an inclusive fitness and aquatic center. There are many benefits to becoming a Turnstone Fitness member:

  1. Community & Support

When you become a member at Turnstone, you become a part of a community. Our clients and staff are supportive of each other. We have 558 current members and five full-time Fitness staff members. Our Fitness Specialists are here to support and guide you as needed in the gym. Fitness Specialists can create customized programs to fit the client’s individual needs and goals. Once that custom plan is made, each new client can have three one-on-one appointments with them to ensure they are comfortable with their new exercise routine. Besides providing physical support, our staff is also here to encourage all members. (You may find a gym buddy who cheers you on as well.)

  1. Socialization

Working out in our fitness and aquatic center is a great way to meet new, like-minded people who may share experiences similar to yours. Our members bring a sense of camaraderie to our facility that makes it motivating to return.

  1. Accomplish Goals & Improve Quality of Life

Members have a variety of goals they come to Turnstone to work on. Improved mobility, increased range of motion, lowered risk for chronic disease, improved general physical fitness, weight management, and improved mental health are just a few examples of some goals our members set for themselves. Turnstone is here to empower members towards achieving a fulfilling, healthy life.

  1. Move!

Movement and regular exercise can have so many benefits—physically and mentally. With our variety of equipment and amenities, there are many options for members to get moving! We offer equipment such as accessible strength training equipment, free weights, recumbent bikes, steppers, ellipticals, treadmills (wheelchair and standard), upper body arm bikes, an accessible rope trainer, and a MotoMed bike for passive and active range of motion training. Members also have access to our warm water therapy pool and 230-meter indoor track.  With all of the variety, there’s something for everyone here!

  1. Boost Mental Health and Self Esteem

Improved confidence, independence, and self-esteem can be great benefits to joining our fitness program.
