Work your Way toward Wellness

The latest addition to the Chelsea Area Wellness Foundation, Dexter Wellness Center, found its home in Dexter with a mission to “improve the health and wellness of the communities it serves.”

Visitors will be one step closer to a healthier body when they enter the 48,000 square foot facility, equipped with cardio and strength machines, an indoor track, free weights, swimming pools and a full-court gymnasium. But that’s just the beginning of the services they provide.

“From the minute the member walks into our facility, they’ll notice that we have a different look and feel,” said Angela Sargeant, center director.

Taking a medically integrated approach is their mantra and when members join, the DWC team offers a detailed fitness assessment and equipment orientation to make sure that they’re comfortable. They help people determine key metrics, such as their body composition, cardiovascular strength, flexibility, and resting heart rate, and then get them going on a program to ensure success. 

“There are a lot of people that have never set foot in any type of exercise facility, so we really want to make sure that they have the right support and tools to be successful with their fitness goals,” Angela explained.

Adults aren’t the only ones who can take advantage of all the gym has to offer. There is plenty of programming for kids and January’s schedule is packed with opportunities for kids to grow, learn and work out. Also, a daycare center filled with games and gadgets for children, “Kids in Motion,” is available for members’ children while the parents work out. 

“For a lot of people, making a commitment to get into a facility is the most important step,” Angela said. “There’s a lot of variety from swimming to exercise classes to cardio and weight machines. Having options for your workout helps keep motivation going. Our goal is to be a part of this community and to provide an opportunity for people to stay healthy and well. We want to get people moving.”
