What is RUI FIT?

Staying Active
and Healthy

Retirement Unlimited, Inc. values our residents and understands the positive impact movement has on health. Through RUI FIT, we offer an exclusive fitness and health program with a variety of classes that empower residents to have fun while staying active. By following the four pillars – Nutrition, Well-Being, Exercise, and Strength – our residents can participate in daily physical fitness classes, work with a certified personal trainer, and receive nutritional guidance to maximize their health and wellness.

Benefits of a Fitness Routine:

As with all exercise programs, we encourage a visit with your doctor prior to meeting with our personal trainer.

Services Offered Through RUI FIT

Cardio Drumming

Cardio drumming combines cardio exercise and drumming to the rhythm of the music in an easy but effective workout. It’s a fun, fast-paced way to get your heart rate up, improve your rhythm, & burn calories. You don’t need to be a drummer to do it, and even more amazingly, you don’t even need drums!

Strength Training

Strength training is a physical activity designed to improve muscular strength and fitness by exercising a specific muscle or muscle group against external resistance. Increasing strength can also help improve balance, mobility, and bone density. All of these help mitigate falls resulting in a more active and independent lifestyle.

Balance and Stretch Classes

Balance, mobility, and flexibility can be lost or compromised at any age. Working on balance, mobility, and flexibility can help improve activities of daily living and keep us functioning at our very best.


Yoga is an excellent way to work on flexibility, mobility, and mindfulness. Yoga increases awareness in your mind, body, and breath and can help you be more in tune with what your body and mind need.

Team Sports and Competition

There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition no matter your age! Our residents love to get involved in golf, sitting volleyball, and cornhole. Team sports encourage friendships and camaraderie, making fitness fun!

Chair One

Chair One Fitness is a super fun chair-based dance fitness program with activities of daily living incorporated into all our cool dance moves. We love keeping people moving and smiling!

Walking Club

Walking is one of the best exercises you can do. It is even considered a strengthening exercise! The walking club helps our residents stay active, strong, and fit. It also provides social time for our residents, allowing them to connect with like-minded friends and neighbors. When the weather is nice, being outdoors improves your mental health as well.
