WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- You may know Burke as the place to go for inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation, but the White Plains landmark has many programs available to the entire community. One to try? The Burke Fitness Center. Designed exclusively for adults 40 and older, this modern, well-equipped gym provides a comfortable and safe environment for exercise.
Once enrolled, Burke's certified personal trainers will design a specific exercise program for you, based on your health history and goals. (Each member requires a physician's approval to exercise and has to provide an in-depth health history.)
The Center’s unique computer system, FitLinxx, enables the trainers to set up a members' program at each exercise machine, which includes state-of-the-art treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines and more. This allows for additional instruction at each visit and helps to reduce the amount of injuries caused by improper use of gym equipment. The system also tracks all your activity, so you can easily see the results of your exercise program.
In addition to the gym, the Burke Fitness Center provides a variety of programs including massage and group classes for Tai Chi, yoga, and pilates. There are also numerous traditional exercise classes such as strength and conditions, body sculpt and Silver Sneakers. So whether you have just completed rehabilitation, have an on-going medical condition, or are simply interested in getting into shape, the Burke Fitness Center is for you.
The facility is easily accessible to White Plains and the surrounding communities and offers ample free parking. For more information, contact (914) 597-2805.
