Active Lives for Older Adults

Older adults, individuals 62 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All seniors benefit from engaging in Y activities that enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being.

Maintain your health and functional ability with programs designed especially for the needs of Seniors. We begin to lose bone density, balance and coordination as we age. The good news is that there is something we can do about it! Strength training and creating a fitness regime can deter or prevent these issues from occurring. Our Active Older Adult and Silver Sneaker classes will teach you how to build muscle strength, endurance and increase mobility.

Everyday activities will become easier, posture will improve and you’ll look and feel great!

Please check with your insurance to see if you qualify for a FREE Silver Sneakers Membership.

 

Our Active Older Adults group also has regular gatherings, including lunch with board games, going bowling, bus trips and more.
Please check the Y's Facebook, bulletin boards and online events calendar for updates.
