Virtual Programs for Seniors (55+)

We are excited to introduce... online programs! Due to COVID-19 and the closing of many Town facilities, including most of the amenities that allow us to conduct indoor and outdoor activities, the Town has cancelled many organized programs.  Therefore, to help fill in the gap while we transition back to running in-person activities, we are introducing several virtual programs for your enjoyment!

Registration is open for both Apex residents and non-residents. These classes will be available for online registration only at www.apexnc.org/peakconnect.  After registration, a link will be sent to your email to join the class. These programs will be run through Zoom. It is our hope that one of these programs will meet your needs while we’re waiting to re-open at full capacity.  

Senior 55+ programs are currently online available virtually. We do not have a senior program guide for September-December. With the uncertainty surrounding us right now, we felt there would be too much change to be worth printing a guide. Instead you can check this page regularly for updates on senior programming for the rest of 2020. Activity descriptions for the virtual programs offered are listed in the tabs below.

  • Advanced Yoga: 6 months to a year of experience required, unless approved by instructor. You must be able to easily get up and down off of the floor, perform poses on your knees and not have any medical conditions or precautions to performing poses above your head or inverted poses. Modifications will be made when needed with the use of props, which you are expected to bring to class.
  • Intermediate Yoga: 6 months of yoga experience required, unless approved by instructor. You must be able to easily get up and down off of the floor and perform poses on your knees.
  • Gentle Mindful Yoga for Meditation: This class will introduce mindfulness meditation techniques and allow time for  practice in class. Before meditation, we will warm-up the entire body through  easy movements and Yoga poses to prepare the body and mind to find stillness.  Chairs will be used for some of the warm-up as well as the meditation practice.  We may also be standing at times, walking and sitting or lying down on the  floor on mats. The choice to stay seated in the chair will be given at all  times. If you are interested in a low-key Yoga class and learning about  mindfulness meditation and all its health benefits, this class is for you! Open to all levels.
  • Zumba Gold: Zumba is a feel-happy workout that combines a motivating fusion of Latin and international music with unique moves and dynamic combinations that allow participants to dance away their worries.  It is based on the principle that a workout should be "Fun and Easy to Do" allowing participants to stick to the program and achieve long-term health benefits in both body and mind.   A mixture of body-sculpting movements with easy-to-follow dance steps, the routines utilize the principles of aerobic interval and resistance training.  A combination of fast and slow rhythms tone and sculpt the body, maximizing caloric output, fat burning and total body toning. 
  • Steel Strong: Take that next step to building strong muscles and staying fit. Forty five minutes of strength training two-to-three times per week can result in huge benefits such as fat loss, increased bone density, improvements in cholesterol and increased muscle tone. Learn the proper techniques of strength training using the abdominals, upper and lower body muscles. Must provide your own hand weights and small exercise ball.
  • Golden Fit Drummers: This is a full body interval cardio jam session, combining light resistance with drumming. Drum off pounds, aggression and stress! This is a one-of-a kind workout for ALL levels. Strengthen and  sculpt muscles, with a combination of cardio moves, strength training and drumming. This combo works the entire body, raises the heart rate to a fat-burning zone and forces each move to be as precise as a basic beat.
  • Line Dancing Beginner: Learn to line dance in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This class is designed for those new to line dancing. We will cover the terminology of basic steps. Sessions will begin with 1-wall (no turning) dances slowly progressing to simple 4-wall dances. This form of dance requires no partner and is a great way to exercise your mind and body!
  • Line Dancing Beginner 1: For those with some line dance experience or have successfully completed the Beginner Line Dance Class.  You should know basic line dance steps and terminology.
  • Line Dancing Beginner 2: Designed for the dancer who has prior experience and has successfully completed the Beginner 1 Line Dancing Class. You are expected to know line dance terminology and patterns.
