The Watkins Wellness Center is equipped with exercise space, the most modern equipment, and — perhaps best of all — a heated saline pool. It is open for residents to use on an individual basis and for the numerous land-based and water-based exercise classes the Wellness Program conducts. Residents may enjoy group classes ranging from Building Balance to Aqua Bootcamp. Personal training is also available.
