The Fitness Center at Providence RECenter is "the place to be" in Falls Church. We have created an atmosphere that encourages people of all fitness levels to continuously improve in all areas of fitness and wellness.
The Fitness Center is fully equipped with:
- Free weights
- Resistance Cybex equipment
- A variety of cardiovascular machines - treadmills, stair steppers, recumbent bikes, upright bikes
- Elliptical machines are also available
- In addition to the equipment, a full time fitness instructor with a staff of personal trainers and volunteers is there to assist you with enthusiasm and dedication to help you get the most out of your workout time and to develop a program that meets your specific goals.
- The Fairfax County Park Authority opened its first Pilates Studio in January 2003 at Providence RECenter. Pilates is a method of body conditioning, a system of stretching and strengthening exercises developed over 90 years ago by German-born Joseph H. Pilates. These popular classes focus on reformer or equipment-based sessions with just five people per class, one-on-one personal training and time rental for personal unsupervised practice sessions.
In our mission to bring recreation and wellness to the community of Falls Church, we offer a variety of programs including body alignment, core strength, fitness assessment, weight control, incentive programs, programs for teens and seniors, and many more fun and active programs all year long.
It is also our commitment to reach the youth in our community. We offer a Weight Training for Teens class that teaches patrons from 12 to 15 years of age how to use equipment properly and safely. This class focuses on weight room etiquette as well as proper weight training techniques. Upon completion of the class and passing a weight training test, teens will have the opportunity to workout without the direct supervision of an adult.
Providence RECenter also offers Weight Training for Seniors classes every session in an effort to educate the senior population on how to use the weight-plated resistance and cardiovascular equipment. With a low instructor to participant ratio, seniors are able to gain useful information about the importance of weight-bearing exercises and how to properly execute each exercise, without feeling overwhelmed.
Our fitness center is open, Monday - Friday, 5 a.m. - 9 p.m., Saturday 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. Teens, 12-15 years old, may use the fitness center and equipment when accompanied by an adult. After completion of a teen weight training class, no supervision is required.
