The Trousdale Wellness Center: Specializing in Healthy Aging

Did you know that physical activity helps seniors maintain the ability to live independently and reduces the risk of falling and fracturing bones? And that it reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression and fosters improvements in mood and feelings of well-being?

These are just a few of the reasons we’re excited to announce that the new Trousdale Wellness Center, a fitness and wellness program located in Burlingame, is now open and accepting new members. While the Center is accessible to anyone 18 or older, it has a specific focus on older adults, the only program of its kind in San Mateo County.

Owned by the Peninsula Health Care District, and operated by Eskaton, a nationally recognized community-based not-for-profit with a strong history of delivering high-quality care for older adults, the Center offers fitness equipment, personal training, and specialty fitness programs tailored to meet the unique needs of older adults. As part of our commitment to identifying and addressing gaps in needed health services, PHCD worked with gym participants and other community members to transition the programs from a hospital-related service to a community service open to all.

In addition to the fully equipped fitness center, the Center also offers Seniors in Motion, a group fitness class. This unique 60-minute class emphasizes gentle aerobic activity and strengthening exercises for upper and lower body muscle groups, and is quite popular given the number of class participants every week!

If you’re interested in joining the fitness center, please call 650-443-3777 or drop by for membership packets at 1875 Trousdale Drive in Burlingame. The Center is open Monday-Friday, 6 am – 8 pm, and Saturday 8 am to noon. We look forward to seeing you at the Center!
