Sewall Healthy Living Center ...

The entrance of the Sewall Healthy Living Center at Sharp Coronado Hospital.

In these past few months, we have all had to adjust to a new normal, most of which now happens in the home. Staying in shape, even pre-quarantine, was challenging for most people. The Sharp Coronado Hospital Healthy Living Center (HLC) recognizes that and is doing everything it can to keep its community members physically and mentally well.

For those who are able to leave the house, the HLC is providing outdoor personal trainer appointments. Employees are masked and socially distancing under a covered area. Located on the Soledad side of the hospital, outside, clients aren’t required to wear masks outdoors as long as social distancing is maintained.

Another option is to attend fitness classes from your very own home, powered by Zoom. There is a fully packed schedule with a variety of class types that cater to all ability levels. You can attend Yoga (in the chair or more advanced), Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Pilates, Cardio Circuit, Strength and Balance and a variety of meditation sessions. Most of the classes are 50 minutes and have music. All of the classes are taught by highly qualified instructors, Jenny Driessen, Cynthia Mendolia, George Montes and Noel Tarver whose passion is to motivate, educate and grow. Participants can pay per class or register for a monthly membership of unlimited virtual classes.

The at-home classes are not only a great way to stay in shape, but are also a way to connect to the outside world. The instructors offer real time feedback about form and ongoing encouragement to commit to your health. In the past few months, the HLC has accumulated a large number of dedicated followers and now friends. Register now to join the fun!
