HOW DO MEMBERS GET STARTED?
As a Member of Ventana, you’ll have access to a variety of tools to help you improve your health and wellness. You’ll meet with our Lifestyle, Wellness and Culinary teams to learn how best to utilize these resources for your health and well-being.
Once you become acclimated to community life, we encourage you to visit the fitness center and meet with a Cooper Aerobics Personal Trainer who is available Monday through Friday. To start, we’ll ask you to complete a health care questionnaire. This will help us understand your goals, preferences, concerns and anything else you feel inclined to share in regard to your overall wellness.
Next, you’ll meet with a Cooper Aerobics Teammate to participate in a Cooper Quest fitness assessment. You’ll complete a functional movement assessment and we’ll collect information including body composition and blood work. Once the assessment is complete, we’ll compare the results to your goals and find the best exercise regimen for you.
Cooper works hand-in-hand with Ventana’s physical therapists to ensure Members are improving and maintaining their health. Our personalized, hands-on approach to fitness helps Members customize their journey to physical wellness and find a program that suits their needs.

WHY OUR MEMBERS LOVE VENTANAFIT:
“VentanaFIT is an essential and most enjoyable part of my new life here at Ventana. A Cooper evaluation followed by an exercise program tailored to your personal needs, state-of-the-art equipment, walking group, group classes… [it] doesn’t get any better.”
– Carmen, Ventana Member
“During COVID we feel the Fitness Center is the safest place to be outside our apartment. The staff is very conscientious in sanitizing all the equipment. They are also very knowledgeable and helpful. They recognize physical limitations & customize exercises to help you achieve your fitness goals. They work with us individually and in group/class settings, creating exercises that are challenging, unique and not repetitious. VentanaFit helps us stay in the best physical condition possible and we look forward to every session.”
– Bonnie & Curtis, Ventana Members
“Unconsciously, I was seeking to revitalize my zest for living, to get out of the ruts. VentanaFIT has provided an exciting—and new for me—physical dimension to that, giving energy and vigor for all the social and interpersonal activities that occur daily in this community. From challenging, directed exercise to free time with all types of equipment, I can work at it in all kinds of weather, by myself or with new friends. And it is as close as an elevator ride.”
– Earl, Ventana Member
