Group fitnessDid you know that medical professionals are now recommending 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise every week? Not to mention participating in muscular-strength training 2 days a week? If you need a little motivation or inspiration, the Group Exercise Department at the Mandell JCC will help get you on your way. 

Many of our members love to exercise in groups because it's fun, challenging, motivating, and it keeps you accountable for attaining your fitness goals. Our professional team of certified instructors are there to guide you through the exercises, while explaining the benefits and working you out beyond your perceived limits.
