Akila Gibbs, executive director of the Pasadena Senior Center, and Raúl Martinez, operations manager, celebrated on Aug. 28 as they cut the ribbon at the entrance of the renovated Sy Graff Fitness Center at the Pasadena Senior Center.
All-new exercise machines and equipment were unveiled, including treadmills, ellipticals, recumbent cycles, a stepper, free weights and more, all designed for cardio exercises and strength training with older adults in mind. Studies have proven that older adults who exercise on a regular basis can improve their ﬂexibility, balance, mind/body coordination and mood.
The ﬁtness center is open seven days a week, including holidays. For more information visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Sy Graff Fitness Center.
