• New Business About To Open: Geri-Fit

I was passing by the shopping center that has Rite Aid (corner of Clinton Keith and Palomar) and noticed a bit of activity going on. 

I stopped in and met Janice Lee, the soon to be proprietor of Geri-Fit. She was busy turning the old dance studio into a place for seniors to come and take workout classes. 

(Due to the construction, there weren't any good pictures to take of the inside at this time.)



Though it sounds like a great idea, I'd never heard of Geri-Fit before so I asked her a bunch of questions.

Geri-Fit offers strength training, flexibility, range of motion, balance and other exercises for older people... even those with loss of mobility, wheelchair bound, people that haven't exercised before or those just getting back into it. 

If a person has a caregiver they are welcome too. That includes just waiting until the session is over, or even being a participant (for a an additional fee).

The fees for the classes are $48, and the classes are 8 sessions at 45 minutes each (four weeks). 

They are work at your own pace classes. The exercises are tailored to the needs of those attending. 

I asked her how she became interested in this field of work and how she got to Wildomar.
My husband and I moved to Wildomar about three years ago from Escondido. I've been interested in senior fitness for quite some time. 

I got sidetracked with my education career; I was a teacher for twelve years (middle school). Prior to that I was a civilian in law enforcement. 

I finally got some time to get back to my passion, which is fitness — senior fitness in particular. Now I have my certification as a fitness trainer, specialist in fitness nutrition and specialist in senior fitness.

She told me that they're working on a Facebook page at the moment. 

I also heard that joining the Wildomar Chamber of Commerce is on her to-do list too.

Wildomar Rap reminds you that age is just a number, and though it's shorter than your cell phone number, it's still a lot easier to remember —despite its yearly change.
