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.

Group Exercise Classes

Each location offers a variety of group exercise classes that are friendly to or designed for older adults. Make sure to check the Community Connect app for the room location and the most up to date information.

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 a group exercise class that meets three times a week for one hour, it becomes a community. Registration is required. 

Next Sessions start January 8th!
