THE JCC VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE
Bringing Community To Your Home
JCC Group Fitness Online
Thank you for your continued patience as we work hard to get your favorite Group Fitness classes with our wonderful instructors online! We have started live streaming some of our classes using Zoom. We will continue to work on creating more opportunities for live streamed classes, so keep checking the JCC's Group Fitness Schedule for the latest additions!
Virtual Fitness Center
Miss your circuit training workout? Three times a week, the JCC's Fitness Director, Bill Marzolla, takes you through the ultimate muscle-building, fat-torching circuit routine, using items available in your own home! Presented on Facebook Live on MWF at 3:00pm, and available in a recorded version for you to watch later. More info: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Do you miss the cardio machines? You ARE a cardio machine. Go outside for a run, bike ride, or brisk walk! It's allowed under the shelter-in-place order, as long as you stay 6 feet from others.)
The JCC's certified personal trainers will work with you online via Zoom. Zoom is a web platform where you and your trainer can see, hear, and speak to each other on your computer, tablet, or mobile phone. We offer solo, buddy, and small group training at a discount off our usual rates. Contact Bill Marzolla, the JCC’s Fitness Director, for more information: email@example.com
Les Mills Workout Videos
Find the perfect workout anytime! Les Mills designs workouts for in-studio or online. During the coronavirus situation, they are offering 95 free workout options across 8 categories that are ready to play right now. The Les Mills platform is free to use and will not collect any data from users. The workouts will remain open and available as long as the coronavirus situation continues to cause disruption.
Videos from Our Instructors
The response from the JCC's fitness instructors during this challenging time has been AMAZING. They have pitched in to help the JCC in all kinds of ways, one of which is to record special workouts to share with JCC members. We are working on a web page with links to the videos they've sent us.
You can still enjoy Jewish Life programs online while we’re sheltering in place. Programs are being offered around the South Bay via Zoom, Facebook Live, and other platforms. For details on some of what's available, see our Jewish Life Online web page.
Starting in April you can cook along with the JCC's Maya Jacobson on Zoom! First session is Monday, April 6 at 7:00pm. Zoom link coming soon. We'll each cook our own dinners in our own kitchens, while keeping each other company and chatting on Zoom.More information: firstname.lastname@example.org
JCC Art Collective
Join an inspiring virtual art space where people can create art and show progress -- just sketch, paint, photograph, write, or sculpt your train of thought onto any media you like. Follow the weekly prompts (given out on Tuesdays), or venture out on your own. Create your artwork, then post and share on the JCC Art Collective Facebook page.
JBuddies for Older Adults
JCC staff and volunteers are regularly making phone calls to chat and check in with older adults who are JCC members or program participants. If you're an older adult who's sheltering in place and home and would like a JCC staff member or volunteer to call you once or twice a week to check in, please email email@example.com.
Camp Shalom Online
We've created a Camp Shalom Facebook Group for Camp Shalom families, where we are posting activities for the whole family to enjoy. Come "hang out" with your Camp Shalom friends! More info: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Young Children
Looking for ways to keep your kids entertained, educated, and engaged at home? Stay tuned for more content curated by the JCC's early childhood, youth, and aquatics staff.
