Wellness | Westerwood

Wellness as a way of life.

Nearly 80% of Westerwood residents actively engage in fitness programming.

Where did the retired athletics director from Otterbein University choose to live? At Westerwood, of course! While we don’t know if it was our well-equipped gym or the dozens of exercise classes that caught his attention, we do know he’s in excellent company when it comes to wellness. The majority of residents regularly attend fitness classes in a testament to their commitment to health and to our fitness programs.

Living well

Move here. Get stronger. Being part of an active community is self-motivating. Beyond the social fabric of encouraging peers, living on campus makes it easy to get to class in just a matter of minutes. Our commitment is to support your goals to become stronger, more flexible and better balanced so you can continue to do what you love most.

Expert instruction and equipment. Our full-time, certified Fitness Coordinator has a B.S. in Exercise Science. She is well-trained in maturing bodies’ biomechanics, and she loves working with new residents to teach them proper form and process. Whether you’re a novice or a retired athletics director, we adapt our classes and fitness instruction to meet your level of experience and conditioning.

Like walking? With nearly a full mile of meandering pathways, much of it through beautiful, wooded areas in our nature refuge, you can reach your 10,000 steps goal daily on your own or with friends from campus.

More to come. On the drawing board are new recreational amenities to boost the fun factor, including a proposed pickleball court, putting green, bocce ball and a variety of other outdoor features. As a resident you can weigh in on what you’d love to see added to the lineup!
