Get ready to experience a positive transformation in your overall health! Welcome to EnhanceFitness®, a new program of St. Francis Healthcare System. 

Creating Healthy Communities…Starting with You! St. Francis Healthcare System’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the community — for those of all ages. It’s never too early or too late to start to experience results. That’s why we’re excited to introduce EnhanceFitness® for the residents of Franciscan Vistas Ewa. This physical activity program changes lives and is another great free benefit for Franciscan Vistas Ewa residents! 

Improving Your Health Studies show regular physical activity improves overall health, memory, mood, balance, bone density, endurance, flexibility, and coordination. The sessions are designed to improve your physical conditioning and to decrease your risk of falling. We think you will be pleasantly surprised by how much better you will feel by participating in this program. 

Personalized Coaching As your instructor, I will help you get the most out of this simple yet effective program. If you are currently inactive, you may experience a little muscle soreness at first. To counteract this common response when starting a new form of exercise, we encourage you to attend class on a regular basis, start gently, and increase your intensity gradually. 

Recommended Attire Wear comfortable clothing and supportive, closed toe shoes to class. A couple of class guidelines are: 

 Go at your own pace 

 Never do anything that hurts 

 If your doctor says don’t do it, please don’t do it 

Exercise Schedule This hour-long class is held three days a week. We’ll meet in Franciscan Vistas Ewa’s Community Center every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. I will be available a few minutes both before and after each class, so please do not hesitate to ask questions. I look forward to exercising with you and getting to know you.

In an effort to address absences in the EnhanceFitness program at each site and address the waitlists (seniors waiting to get into the program), the following guidelines will be in place: 

The Program Coordinator will contact those who are absent to follow-up on the reasons for absences. If you are unable to return to class and a waitlist exists for that class, you will be given the opportunity to be put on the waitlist. Follow-up will be done by mail if we are unable to make telephone contact with you. 

1) Chronic absences 

Minimum attendance to remain in the program is 8 classes a month. Excused absences will be granted at the instructor’s discretion. If you do not meet the minimum attendance requirement, you will be removed from the active roster and will be given the opportunity to be waitlisted. 

2) Vacations 

If you are absent for more than a month, you may be removed from the active roster and given the opportunity to go on the waitlist. 

3) Hospitalization/long term illness 

We believe that returning to EnhanceFitness after a hospitalization/illness/surgery will help with your recovery. Your space will be held for 6 weeks. If you are not able to return within the 6 weeks, you will go to the top of the waitlist and will be notified by the Program Coordinator when an opening is available. You will need to have a doctor’s clearance to assure that you are healthy enough to return to the program. 

If an opening occurs and you are not yet able to return, you will remain at the top of the list and the next person will be contacted. 

It is your responsibility to keep the instructor or Program Coordinator informed of vacations or long absences.
