These two ellipticals are top-of-the-line, commercial-grade treadmills which feature unique technology, which increase the comfort and safety of walking and running. The impact control system ensures optimum shock absorption throughout the entire running area.
The eight treadmill machines provide a moving platform with a wide conveyor belt for easier walking. The belt moves to the rear allowing a person to walk or run an equal, and necessarily opposite velocity. The rate at which the belt moves is the rate of walking or running. Thus, the speed of running may be controlled and measured.
A recumbent bicycle is a bicycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons: the rider’s weight is distributed comfortably over several square feet of the back and buttocks. On a traditional upright bicycle, weight rests on a few square inches of the sit bones, the feet, and the hands. There are two recumbent bicycles in the fitness center.
The Heritage Senior Center offers one rowing machine for total body workouts.
