AMENITIES

The 36,000 sq ft. VINE Adult Community Center (VACC) facility, repurposed from a former college classroom building, features a cushioned walking track, a fully-equipped fitness center with HUR machines, NuSteps, a treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, free weights, and balance training equipment and a 19 x 50 ft. warm-water exercise pool. Wellness and education classes are offered at no charge to members and at a nominal fee for community members. We have a strong focus on supporting family caregivers and regularly offer programs to enhance their skills and teach appropriate self-care. The VACC’s members enjoy opportunities to socialize over free coffee, play cards, and board games, engage in art activities and be involved in music, dance, and theater groups which perform around the area.

Adult Literacy Center - closed until further notice

Under supervision of a certified ELL instructor at VINE, retired educators volunteer at the Adult Literacy Center and help refugee elders and other literacy-challenged adults improve reading and writing skills. Increased English literacy enables participants to become more fully engaged and successful in their community. Aging refugees with limited English proficiency benefit from the opportunity to socialize with other elders and VINE volunteers. Classes are held Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at the VINE Adult Community Center. Transportation can be arranged.

Fitness Center

OPEN:
Monday – Friday: 8 am – 5 pm

Our full-service fitness center is non-intimidating and features state-of-the-art strength training equipment. Our exercise equipment is easy to use and reduces stress on your joints. The smart-card technology personalizes your training, while keeping track of your progress. Professional staff and trained volunteers are always available to help.

Walking Track

OPEN:
Monday – Friday: 8 am – 5 pm

No matter the weather outside, our cushioned walking track is always the perfect 70 degrees inside, with 360-degree views of the Minnesota River Valley. Research shows that a flat, firm, but not too hard surface is the best for older knees and joints.

Warm Water Exercise Pool

VINE’s 89-degree heated pool is used for exercise classes and is available for lane swimming, water walking, and open swimming. An accessibility lift allows adults of varying degrees of ability to enjoy warm water exercise.
