The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades of Tenafly and Englewood Health have started a new session of the Wellness and Longevity Heart Health Program, aimed at people with heart disease or who have risk factors for heart disease, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and a family history. It is also for people who are overweight or have completed a formal cardiac rehab program. The structured five-week program, led by medical and fitness experts, aims to lead participants into a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. Physician clearance is required.
The first group fitness class at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades will be on Monday, June 3, at 6 p.m., and doctor clearance forms must be submitted. Classes will be led by certified trainers at the JCC’s fitness center on Mondays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. The class will be tailored to the participants’ individual needs.
The time commitment is 60 minutes twice a week for five weeks, for 10 sessions in total. Participants will have access to the JCC gym at no additional charge. Fitness staff will be available to help with personal workouts at the JCC, and participants will receive a free JCC membership for one month.
A final wrap-up session will be held on Thursday, July 11, from 6 to 7 p.m., at the Graf Center for Integrative Medicine at Englewood Health. Baselines will be taken if requested.
