Engaging sport, exercise and recreational amenities

At Applewood Village, you’ll find a resort-style array of fantastic outdoor amenities, including a 1,000-square-foot putting green and driving range net, shuffleboard, bocce and croquet courts. You’ll find the sporting equipment on-hand, so you don’t have to store anything at home.

Enjoy a spirited or leisurely bike ride? Just check out a beach cruiser or 3-wheeler from the Applewood Bike Share, which works like the Citi Bike program in NYC — minus the rental fee!

Or if you prefer to keep it simple, you’ll find lighted walking and biking trails and sidewalks throughout the community where you can enjoy a car-free stroll, day or night.

On-site group fitness designed for people (not just older people)

Regardless of your current health or fitness status, Applewood Village offers a variety of small group fitness and wellness experiences. Residents are encouraged to step outside their comfort zone and try new fitness endeavors, not just activities traditionally relegated for older adults.

While group fitness opportunities are continuously refreshed, these core programs are especially popular:

  • Aqua Fitness is a 45-minute cardio and strength program that works all the muscles in the body while working against the water to improve overall fitness and balance.
  • Get Hip, Don’t Slip is a balance program for all levels of fitness, whether you want to strengthen or maintain your balance.
  • Basic Strength improves upper body strength using lightly weighted dumbbells.
  • Stretch and Core Exercise focuses on the importance of stretching muscles to allow better mobility and strength while working on specific core exercises to decrease pain and tightness in common areas.
  • Exercise for Arthritis is a program designed not only for those who have arthritis but for everyone looking to improve joint mobility and overall muscle strength in affected areas.
  • Meditation, Tai Chi and Qi Gong sessions are led by a Tai Chi/Qi Gong Master.

Applewood’s Fitness Center also includes SmartBalance, the latest balance assessment and improvement technology designed specifically to help residents measure their fall risk and practice exercises that help minimize falls and avoid injury. These one-on-one assessments are pre-scheduled and overseen by Applewood’s staff Fitness& Wellness coordinator.
