Active Lives for Older Adults
Today’s seniors are more health conscious than ever before. At the Y we’ve made the health and fitness of our senior adults a top priority by providing programs for the spirit, mind, and body. Through group exercise classes and aquatic programs that focus on flexibility and mobility, guest speakers, social events, and field trips, our Y is bringing Active Older Adults together for fellowship and fun!
SilverSneakers® is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity and offering social events. As one of the largest senior-focused exercise programs in the United States, this partnership allows eligible members of some health plans to obtain YMCA memberships at no cost. To qualify for a free membership, you must be a Medicaire-eligible member of a health plan that offers the SilverSneakers Program.
