SilverSneakers® members will have access to the Shaw JCC’s fitness center, including cardio and weight equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, group exercise classes including water fitness, racquetball and tennis courts and full gymnasium.

“The program not only offers physical activity but also health education and social events,” says Michael Neumann, Shaw JCC executive director. “What sets the Shaw JCC apart from other fitness centers is that we are truly a community center, and we offer many extras that you won’t find elsewhere.”
