The Fergus Falls Senior Citizens Program is a great place to socialize with
friends and watch your social network grow. We offer a variety of programs to fit
the needs of all senior citizens from 55 years of age and older. Some activities offered are: quilting, pinochle, bridge, whist, hand & foot, Red Hat group,
special events, exercise classes, bingo, greeting card recycling, Kitchen Band, bunco, discussion groups, knit & crochet class,
Dakim Brain Fitness, memory screenings, library with magnifying reading machine,
pool and snooker, paint classes, informational seminars, and volunteer opportunities.
Our Exercise Programs are Top Notch! We have added the Life Fitness
Circuit Series for strength
training and two NuStep TRS 4000s, two TechnoGym Excite Jog treadmills, and a
TechnoGym Crossover 700 for cardiovascular fitness.
Schwinn Airdyne bikes are also available. Orientation classes to use the
equipment are held with a certified exercise instructor prior to using the
equipment. After an
orientation session to the equipment, members are welcome to use the equipment
anytime during Senior Center hours. Participants must fill out a liability form
which is available from the instructor or the office. We encourage participants
starting a new exercise routine to have a discussion with their physician prior
to using the equipment, and provide a Physicians Release listing the equipment
available. This form may be kept by the participants.
