Center for Active Living

The Center for Active Living helps you create a lifestyle that includes physical activity. We begin with conversations about how you live and design a program that you can do long-term in your real world, everyday life.

Services Offered

  • Group exercise. The Center for Active Living provides personal training services and group exercise classes to adults.
  • Enhanced fitness. For those who already value the benefits of physical activity but have specific goals, the center offers specialized programs.
  • Chronic disease management. Regular exercise, in conjunction with other medical service providers, tailored to improve health.


“The staff at the Center for Active Living don't just tell me what I should do: they asks me what my goals are and what I like and don't like to do in terms of fitness. They are real people and seem to value me as a real person; together we are a team for my health and fitness. I like their enthusiasm, energy, positive yet sincere feedback, timeliness, and "extras" they provide, like videos of how to do my workouts.”
“Tina always impresses us with her enthusiasm, commitment and dedication. She is a strong motivator and has a deep concern to making a difference in helping people lead more active lives.”
“They engage me with enthusiasm and sparkle as well as knowledge and skill. I appreciate being guided toward health a step at a time, building from what I can do to what I want to be able to do!”
“I loved Michelle's approach with our group. She analyzed each individual's weakness and modified exercises for each of us. I learned some new techniques and exercises that will help me not only with golf but with daily activities in general. I look forward to working with her again.”
“I loved learning many new golf warm-up and conditioning exercises and stretches, and how to strengthen my core. Even with 5 of us in the class, we all received lots of individualized attention and instruction. Michelle was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks so much Michelle!”
