Are you retired and want a healthy way to schedule your day?
Do you find yourself unable to stretch, lift or balance like you used to?
Want to connect with other fun-loving, health-conscious seniors in your neighborhood?
RHF senior classes could be ideal for you!
Our SilverSneakers® fitness programs are offered at Rainier Health & Fitness six days a week (Monday-Saturday). On Thursdays, seniors can breath deeply, relax and stretch with SilverSneakers® Yoga Stretch. If your insurance plan offers fitness benefits then you are more than likely eligible for the basic membership at RHF! Check out our “enhanced membership” option for access to more advanced circuit style classes with extra addition to proper form, advanced modifications & increased intensity.
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8:00 AM & 9:00 AM &Tuesday: 11:00 AM
Have fun and move to the music through a variety of exercises designed to increase balance, muscular strength, range of movement and activity for daily living skills. Use small, hand-held weights, a band with handles and a ball for resistance. SilverSneakers® I is lower impact than SilverSneakers® II, incorporating a chair for seated and/or standing support. Our most popular class for older adults!
This class is similar to the format of SilverSneakers® I but slightly more advanced. You won't find chairs in this class and it features a more challenging routine with cardio.
Thursday: 9:00 AM
Move your whole body through a complete series of seated and standing poses with SilverSneakers® yoga. You will safely perform a variety of postures using chair support designed to increase flexibility, balance and range of movement. You may also utilize other props such as blocks and straps as you move with your breath in a Vinyasa-style flow. The class will also help reduce stress and enhance mental clarity through restorative breathing exercises and final relaxation. Note: in this shoe-friendly environment, you may keep footwear on if you would like. All fitness levels are welcome!

Come and enjoy sweating through a total body circuit with your friends on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays!
