Fitness and Aquatic Centers

State-of-the-art facilities

Fitness Center

The Elizabeth J. Rasmussen Fitness Center houses a variety of exercise equipment including bicycles, treadmills, Nu-Step machines and Kaiser weight equipment specially designed for older adults. Personalized fitness programs and group fitness classes are available.

Aerobic Studio

The Aerobic Studio offers opportunities for strength and balance training and specialized arthritis classes. The special shock-absorbent flooring cushions joints during low impact aerobics. The ballet bar around three sides of the room provides support during balancing exercises. Mirrored walls encourage proper posture and positioning.

Aquatic Center


The Aquatic Center includes two pools:

  • The John J. and Ethel D. Keller Pool is ideal for lap swimming and aerobic conditioning requiring more vigorous exercise.
  • The Prescott Family Pool features warmer water for more gentle exercise and therapy. This pool also has an underwater bench with circulating jets that serve as muscle stimulants or relaxers.

A redwood arbor with a chairlift can be used to assist persons unable to enter the pools by the ramps or stairs. Individual unisex changing rooms offer the privacy of a complete bath with no-step showers and ample space for assistance. 

The pools are open to residents' children, grandchildren and other family members during open swim times every Saturday from 8 to 11 a.m. except holidays.

See the Fall Schedule of swim classes and open swims for residents, families, staff, volunteers, and members of the Seniors Center and Learning in Retirement.
