The Vitality! programs are conducted on the second floor of the Institute for Human Performance. The facilities include:
- 25-meter, three-lane pool, temperature controlled at 86 degrees, with a floor that can be adjusted between zero (dry) and seven feet in depth. The pool also has a ramp designed for wheelchairs and people with mobility limitations. Together with a wide array of water equipment, the IHP pool is the foundation of Vitality's! excellent water program that can be modified for most any ability level.
- State-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength-training equipment includes Keiser pneumatic-resistance systems which are designed for people with movement limitations and disabilities. The track, which is 14 laps to the mile, is coated with a special surface that reduces stress to the feet and lower body.
The senior fitness program is offered in conjunction with the OASIS program which is sponsored by University Hospital.
