past century, on loan from the 
Tournament of Roses.

Senior Fitness Center Gets 
a $70,000 Makeover

The Sy Graff Fitness Center 
at the Pasadena Senior 
Center, 85 E. Holly St., will 
soon undergo a $70,000 
renovation, including new 
equipment, funded by a 
grant from The Ahmanson 

 The community is invited 
to a ribbon cutting Monday, 
Aug. 28, at 11 a.m., when all-
new exercise machines and 
equipment will be unveiled, 
including treadmills, 
ellipticals, recumbent cycles 
and more.

 Guests will tour the 
fitness center, enjoy light 
refreshments and help cut 
the ribbon that will signal 
the official reopening.
The equipment, designed 
for cardio exercises and 
strength training with older 
adults in mind, will replace 
existing apparatus that was 
purchased more than a 
decade ago. 

 Studies have proven that 
older adults who exercise 
on a regular basis can 
improve their flexibility, 
strength, balance, mind/
body coordination, mood 
and more.

 “As we get older and our 

bodies change, the best 
investment we can make is 
to work out and stay active,” 
said Akila Gibbs, executive 
director of the Pasadena 
Senior Center. “There 
currently are 400 users of the 
fitness center, and we always 
are happy to welcome new 

The fitness center is open 
seven days a week, including 
holidays. Members can 
exercise on their own under 
general supervision of 
specially trained volunteers 
or sign up with a certified 
personal trainer to help 
them achieve their fitness 
goals in a safe, nurturing 
environment. Membership 
is only $90 per year. In 
addition, strength training 
classes are offered for only 
$4 per class.

 The Sy Graff Fitness Center 
is named for Sylvester “Sy” 
Graff (1921-1998) whose 
wife Dorothy donated the 
original equipment when 
the center was established in 
his memory in 1998.
