IMPORTANT INFORMATION – JUNE 2021 UPDATE
We understand you have been waiting for an update on our Great Rock Wellness Program and we greatly appreciate both your continued interest in this program and your patience. Though there are currently many encouraging signs, including decreased positivity rates, increased vaccination rates, and reduced restrictions on social gatherings, there is still a great deal of uncertainty about the Covid-19 virus and the effect that the recent changes in restrictions will have on our campus and in the greater community. With that in mind, out of an abundance of concern for our residents and your experience as members, we have decided to keep Great Rock Wellness closed to our Southern Lancaster County neighbors through December 31, 2021.
This decision is as disappointing to us as it may be to you, and we want you to know that it is our intent to provide current members with the opportunity to resume membership. When we do reopen, we want to be reasonably sure that we will be able to remain open and not face the frustrations associated with changing guidelines and a cycle of repeated openings and closures.
Quarryville understands that your life may have changed significantly over the course of the past year and a half and that you may have chosen to seek membership opportunities elsewhere. If you are no longer interested in continuing your membership with us or do not wish to receive further updates on our Great Rock Wellness Program, please let us know so we can remove your name from our mailing list.
If you have questions about the Wellness Program and your membership, please contact our Wellness Manager, Krystal Campbell, at 717-786-5222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Each new member is eligible for an orientation to the fitness equipment and initial exercise program at no additional cost.
The Wellness Team provides professional supervision in the Fitness Center & Aquatic Center at certain times for members who require assistance when they exercise.
The Wellness Team offers a wide variety of both land and aquatic fitness classes, including circuit training, balance, Pilates, Rusty Hinges, other water aerobics programs, and Zumba Gold. Beginner-friendly to high intensity classes are available to meet your individual fitness level.
Comprehensive personal fitness assessments are available by appointment to all members on a fee-for-service basis.

The Wellness Team provides assessments for postural alignment, balance, cardiovascular fitness, muscular fitness, flexibility, body composition, functional performance, and core stability.
Private training sessions are available by appointment on a fee-for-service basis. A Wellness Professional will personally guide you through a workout session specifically tailored to your personal goals and health conditions. Personal Training is great for anyone from beginners with a wide-range of health concerns to athletes looking to push their performance to the next level. This service provides the maximum level of accountability and results.
The wellness team is shining the spotlight on McElwain resident Martin Wienand for his consistent participation and dedication to a routine fitness program. Martin joined the wellness program right after moving to QPRC about two and a half years ago. Prior to moving to here, Martin lived locally with his wife and enjoyed working around the house, gardening, woodworking, and bowling.
Martin gets up early to walk nearly every day and uses the exercise machines in the Commons Fitness Center at least three times per week to build strength. Martin had never formally exercised with equipment before moving here, but after an introductory training with the wellness staff, he quickly gained confidence and adopted a formal routine. His current goal is to focus on exercises that improve his balance.
Martin’s motivation to keep exercising comes from the stress relief it provides. He stated, “It clears the mind. You concentrate on the exercise and nothing else.” Martin also mentioned that he enjoys both the physical and mental challenge of learning how to use different exercise machines and that changing your routine keeps you interested.
Martin maintained his commitment to exercise even when the COVID-19 pandemic limited his options. He was the first person to contact the wellness department to register for an exercise time slot when we re-opened the program for resident use. Martin’s advice to individuals who are sedentary and looking to get started is, “You don’t have to do a lot. Try a little and ask for help.”
To enjoy all the amenities of the Great Rock Wellness Center, you’ll need to become a member. To apply for a membership, contact us and request an appointment for a Wellness Program Orientation.
