Active Older Adults

Programs for Active Older Adults

As we age, it is increasingly important to stay active and exercise regularly. At the Y, older adults can take advantage of exercise programs designed especially for them and benefit from social events.

The YMCA is proud to find ways to provide opportunities for our senior adult members. More than just a gym membership, we are finding ways to specialize senior classes, health education, and social programs that have been shown to help older adults maintain good health, reduce health care costs, and lead an active, independent lifestyle.

 

Socials

Older adults can socialize at the Y during our monthly pot lucks. The Y Jammer band plays while members and their friends get to enjoy delicious food. Come show off your culinary skills or just have fun with friends.

Fall Prevention Classes

EnhanceFitness: Need to improve balance? Want to get stronger? Then EnhanceFitness is for you. This program helps improve balance and strength to help older adults live more actively and functionally. It’s perfect for groups living with arthritis or at risk for falling. The participants stay together for the entire 16 weeks, so while it is group exercise class that meets three times a week for one hour, it becomes a community. Preregistration is required. 

Next Sessions start January 9th!
