Fitness Fun at The Linden at Murrieta Senior Living
The Linden at Murrieta is a senior living community offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care in Murrieta, CA. Our continuum of care allows seniors to stay in our community even as needs change over time. In an effort to keep residents as independent as possible for as long as possible, we prioritize functional fitness and holistic wellness. Engaging in a regular exercise program offered by our PrimeFit program can improve the quality of life for any person, especially for seniors who may be nervous about falling and losing independence.
“Exercise has given me strength, endurance, and balance. It makes me more confident!” – Merriam S., resident at The Linden at Murrieta
Our residents have the opportunity to receive a health assessment from our PrimeFit instructor. The assessment will help residents understand their current health status and set attainable goals and provide a fitness map for seniors to reach those goals.
While each resident will have different needs and an individual plan for success, our PrimeFit program incorporates strength, cardio, and a healthy dose of Five-Star Fun!
In keeping with our promise of delivering Five-Star Fun every day, our fitness games combine laughter, friendship, and fitness. Two of our most popular games are chair beach volleyball and Wii bowling. Residents enjoy the friendly competition and social interaction while also building dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and reaction times.
“I haven’t laughed that much in years!” – Sharon S., resident at The Linden at Murrieta
As simple as it may seem, walking is one of the best exercises for people of all ages. It’s free, takes as much time as desired, and engages the legs, hips, heart, and lungs. Walking is a full-body workout that can increase the efficiency of the heart and lungs while strengthening the legs and core. In addition to physical benefits, walking can reduce feelings of anxiety and depression.
At The Linden at Murrieta, we prioritize leg strength to help seniors maintain their balance. The good news is that you can add strength to your exercise routine at any age! Just 2-3 leg exercises per week can dramatically improve leg strength and balance.
“We appreciate the PrimeFit program for making our residents stronger and making our jobs a little easier!” – Sonia, Med Tech at The Linden at Murrieta
Stretching is often overlooked, but it is so essential to maintaining mobility and flexibility. Regular stretching increases mobility and allows residents to continue doing the tasks they love doing. Proper stretching can reduce pain and tension throughout the muscles and improve circulation.
