Fitness Program

Ironwood Fitness is an integral facet of life at Ironwood. The morning begins with thirty minutes of exercise, six days per week. Residents follow a rotating schedule of running or hiking outside, calisthenics, strength training, and endurance exercises. In inclement weather, they practice indoors with exercise videos that introduce advanced strength-training techniques. Ironwood residents also participate in formal Yoga and Tai Chi classes taught by certified instructors. These exercises develop rhythm and coordination, balance, cardiovascular health, flexibility, strength, and endurance. Additional benefits are healthy weight maintenance and increased bone density. Fitness weaves into the fabric of the day as children walk between activities, care for animals, stack firewood, build stone walls, forts and other landscaping structures. In this way, they learn (or remember) that health is more than attending an occasional class or checking off isolated exercises on a list. We integrate physical, emotional and mental well-being through an active, responsible daily life and healthy relationships with the natural world and each other.
