The Fitness Facility with a Medical Focus
The Glens Falls Hospital Wellness Center provides our community with a unique exercise experience.
The Wellness Center is integrated with the Rehabilitation Center which has physical, occupational and speech therapy services onsite. This provides easy transition for patients receiving therapy services to continue with their exercise program during and after their therapy ends. The facility is equipped with aerobic exercise equipment for members of differing activity levels as well as several resistance training options. It is also one of the few facilities in the area that has several NuStep machines which are popular with clients who have joint pain or weakness.
Members receive a health assessment and individualized exercise instruction with continued supervision and guidance throughout the membership. Personalized goal setting is offered with our staff monitoring their progress and working with them to reach their goals. One-on-one training, special testing (balance, body composition, falls risk), assistance on/off the equipment and monitoring of blood pressure, oxygen and heart rate are all included in the membership at no extra cost.
Medical clearance is required to activate membership and must be updated annually. Patients completing a cardiac rehab, physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy at a Glens Falls Hospital outpatient facility have the initial health assessment fee waived and the first month free if starting while receiving services or within one month of completing therapy.
Flexible options are offered for membership fees include individual and couple options; 1, 6 and 12 month options; and discounts for seniors and Glens Falls Hospital employees. We participate in several discount programs that will cover the cost of membership or provide discounted rates.

- Aquatic Classes (WaterWorx)
