The Red Oak Center

At Christian Community Homes & Services,

we are all bonded by the desire to improve our lives

physically, socially, and emotionally.


We are proud to announce that the Red Oak Center

is now open to the community for those age 55+,

for a low monthly fee, no contract and no initiation fee!

The Red Oak Center

The Red Oak Center opened in the fall of 2007, with the exciting new concept to purposefully
blur the lines between preventative exercises and clinical therapies. The   Red    Oak    Center

is a highly motivating environment with a unique approach to fitness, healthy lifestyles, and clinical recovery workouts when they are needed.

To help achieve a better you, the Red Oak Center has state of the art equipment by Keiser. The Keiser equipment is all run on air pressure, which makes it much smoother and easier to use than comparable machines with iron weight stacks. Another great feature of the equipment is that they are adjustable by 1 pound increments with the simple press of a button.

The Red Oak CenterThe Red Oak Center is filled with many different kinds of equipment to meet everyone's skill level. The Keiser equipment consists of 3 upper body machines, 3 lower body machines and
1 functional trainer.

The center also has 2 treadmills, an arm bike, a recumbent bike, and 2 recumbent steppers. There are also a variety of free weights, exercise balls, and thera-bands.

The greatest part of the Red Oak Center is that every resident of the CCHS campus is eligible to use the Red Oak Center ABSOLUTELY FREE!

The Red Oak Center

The first step to joining the Red Oak Center is to go through an initial evaluation which is conducted by Travis Sanders, the Red Oak Center Director. This evaluation begins with a brief meeting to discuss the resident's health history, exercise history, personal goals, and to fill out a few other forms.

The second step to joining the wellness center is to go through a short and quick seven part fitness assessment. This assessment is not meant to serve as any sort of competition among residents, but rather a way for each person to measure their own progress and also a tool for the Red Oak Center to identify which areas might need to be focused on.

The seven parts of the fitness assessment includes:

  • Flexibility tests
  • Muscle strength tests of both upper and lower body
  • Muscle stamina
  • Balance
  • Walking
  • Short questionnaire aimed at how a resident is currently feeling.

After going through those two steps it is time to enjoy the benefits of participating in a regular exercise program. Here are a few examples of the benefits:

  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Lowers heart rate
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Improved pain management
  • Helps with weight management
  • Helps control chronic diseases (like diabetes)
  • Improves self-esteem
  • Improves breathing
  • Increases muscular strength and endurance
  • Enhances flexibility

These benefits are all real possibilities and many of them have been seen right here in the Red Oak Center!

Our on-staff therapist assists us in the proper equipment and monitors our progress. I, among many others, am a 'regular' to take advantage of the benefits this fitness center offers"
