About ProMotion Fitness Center
Shepherd Center's ProMotion Fitness Center attempts to improve its members' fitness and quality of life through land-based and aquatic classes, personalized programs, private lessons and personal training.
The facility is completely accessible to allow people with physical disabilities to participate in all programs, as appropriate. Professionally trained and certified staff members are available to ensure that all members receive the highest quality assistance.
ProMotion staff will provide an initial consultation for new members and their caregivers (when applicable) to assess their level of fitness and prescribe an appropriate wellness program. During this time, an orientation will be given to instruct the member and caregiver on how to properly use appropriate equipment.
The ProMotion weight room is equipped with free weights, strength machines, treadmills, Stairmasters, recumbent bikes, upright bikes, elliptical training machines, spin bikes, NuStep Recumbent Steppers, upper-body ergometers, standing frames and various fitness accessories. Most equipment is accessible to people with physical disabilities.
The full-court gymnasium is available for use dependent upon therapy sessions, sports teams’ practices and events, and exercise classes.
ProMotion facilities include an indoor track overlooking the gymnasium. Nineteen laps equal one mile.
The 25-yard pool includes a ramp into the water, one water-powered lift, two Hoyer lifts and a transfer wall to ensure accessibility for all. Through the use of an automated sanitation system, the pool stays clean and clear year around.
ProMotion offers a variety of land and aquatic exercise classes from the beginner to the advanced level, taught by certified instructors. Classes specific for people with physical disabilities are offered. A class schedule is available below.
