Active Older Adults

Health and Fitness

We’ve made the health and fitness of our seniors a top priority by providing programs for the spirit, mind, and body. Through group exercise classes and aquatic programs that concentrate on mobility and flexibility, dance classes, social events, and volunteer activities, the YMCA is bringing active older adult members together for camaraderie, fellowship, and fun. Most programs are free for Y members.

We are excited to offer a variety of programs for the active older adults in our community!


SilverSneakers

SilverSneakers group exercise classes are appropriate for active older adults who are fit and active as well as those who are sedentary, intimidated, unfamiliar with exercise, entering post-rehabilitation programs and all those who enjoy a positive, upbeat social environment! SilverSneakers are included with your Y membership.
