Happy New Year neighbors and friends! I am excited to be beginning a new year with all of the residents here at The Spinney. January is a time when we all look towards “resolutions” that we begin in earnest and gradually end up back in the same old rut. We here at the Spinney are going to try our best to help you achieve your goals and are focusing on Wellness from January through December! With the opening of our Clubhouse, you now have unlimited access to fitness equipment here on site. We have entered into an exciting new partnership with Revive Wellness (by Upstate Physicians Services) here in Delmar to provide ongoing wellness training for our residents. It is important that we receive feedback from you on what you liked, what you are looking for and ways that we can improve our Events in general. Now, January’s events (so far – I may be adding some new ones):
Wednesday, Jan. 3 @ 10am: Fitness Center Education Program (1hr) Introduction to the proper way to utilize the equipment, Blood Pressure, Body Fat %, and BMI check.
