What We Offer
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.
Our Exercise Programs are Top Notch! We offer the Life Fitness Circuit Series for strength training, plus a hip abductor, and pec/delt fly, four NuSteps, four TechnoGym Excite Jog treadmills, two Technogym upright LED bikes, a TechnoGym Crossover 700, SCIFIT climber, SCIFIT elliptical, and two SCIFIT recumbent/arm bikes that are wheelchair accessible. Orientation classes to use the equipment are held prior to using the equipment. After an orientation session to the equipment, members are welcome to use the equipment during Senior Center hours. We encourage participants starting a new exercise routine to have a discussion with their physician prior to using the equipment. The Fergus Falls Senior Center is a Silver Sneakers®, OnePass/Renew Active® and Silver & Fit® participating fitness center! Silver Sneakers, OnePass/Renew Active and Silver & Fit are designed specifically to help older adults achieve better health through regular exercise and health education. Silver Sneaker, OnePass/Renew Active and Silver & Fit provide eligible members with no-cost fitness memberships through arrangements with certain health plans.
