ANNOUNCEMENT – July 3, 2023
After several challenging years, we are pleased to announce that we are ready to reopen Great Rock Wellness membership opportunities to our Southern Lancaster County neighbors on a limited basis. As the first step in the re-opening process, we will be reaching out to former Great Rock Wellness members and offering new memberships to friends and family members of current Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community residents.
If you are interested in membership or have questions, please contact Gabe at 717-786-5222 or [email protected]. We look forward to serving you.
Each new member is eligible for an orientation to the fitness equipment and initial exercise program at no additional cost.
The Wellness Team provides professional supervision in the Fitness Center & Aquatic Center at certain times for members who require assistance when they exercise.
The Wellness Team offers a wide variety of both land and aquatic fitness classes, including circuit training, balance, Pilates, Rusty Hinges, and other water aerobics programs. Beginner-friendly to high intensity classes are available to meet your individual fitness level.
Comprehensive personal fitness assessments are available by appointment to all members on a fee-for-service basis. Fitness assessments provide helpful information on a member’s current health condition and fitness level. The Wellness Team provides assessments for postural alignment, balance, cardiovascular fitness, muscular fitness, flexibility, body composition, functional performance, and core stability.
Private training sessions are available by appointment on a fee-for-service basis. A Wellness Professional will personally guide you through a workout session specifically tailored to your personal goals and health conditions. Personal Training is great for anyone from beginners with a wide-range of health concerns to athletes looking to push their performance to the next level. This service provides the maximum level of accountability and results.
Larry Wanaselja is our current resident in the Wellness Spotlight. Larry and his wife, Phyllis, moved to Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community in 2021 from Delaware. Larry enjoys art and reading but has become drawn more recently to active-oriented activities and exercising.
Larry and Phyllis did not waste any time as they quickly became members of the Wellness Center within a month of moving in. Larry really values the Wellness Center as an easy-to-access facility within walking distance. He enjoys various programs and activities including swimming, fitness classes, and working out using the fitness machines. He also participates in several resident-run athletic activities including water volleyball in the pool and pickleball on the sport court.
The benefits of exercising are clear to Larry. He states that a regular exercise program has helped him with certain health challenges. The positive effects of exercise have provided ongoing motivation to stay active and to continue to build strength. In addition, he enjoys exercising because it makes him feel good and provides a dimension of discipline which he appreciates.
Larry likes to participate in different special events organized by the Wellness Center. He participated in the Lancaster Senior Games last spring and more recently in our very own Turkey Trot.
When asked what advice he would give to someone who wants to start exercising, Larry provided some tips. He suggests having a partner to encourage and support you in your fitness journey and establish a routine early on.
Larry has a wonderful positive attitude and is very encouraging to others. It is a pleasure to feature him as Quarryville’s “Resident in the Wellness Spotlight.”
Due to concern for the health and safety of our residents and team members, membership opportunities for the public are currently unavailable. Thank you for your understanding. If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Wellness team at 717-786-5222.
