Spotlight On: The Burke Adult Fitness Center

Published September 8, 2017

We’ve seen many familiar faces recently in The Burke Adult Fitness Center. Current and former patients have been utilizing the specialized exercise program services, which are designed by a certified personal trainer based on the individual’s health history and goals. Whether you have just completed rehabilitative therapy, have an on-going medical condition or are simply interested in getting into shape, this facility is for you.

The Burke Adult Fitness Center is designed for adults 40 and older (or those with a qualifying disability) to provide a comfortable, supportive and safe environment for exercise. Each member of the fitness center requires a physician's approval to exercise and has to provide an in-depth health history.

Once an individually specialized exercise program has been created, the trainer will go through the program with the individual three times. This will help ensure that the trainer and member are both comfortable with the member's ability to exercise independently and safely.

The fitness center features ActiveLinxx, a specially-designed computer system that enables personal trainers to set up a members' program at each exercise machine through an individual computer. This allows for more instruction on each visit to reduce the amount of injuries caused by improper use of fitness equipment. The ActiveLinxx system also tracks everything the member does so that they can easily see the results of their exercise program.

The fitness center also offers 8-session group classes, including Adaptive Yoga, Yoga, Pilates, Slow Flow Yoga, Chair Zumba and Zumba. 

The facility is easily accessible to White Plains and the surrounding communities and offers ample free parking. For more information, please contact (914) 597-2805.
