Get Active and Stay Healthy

The YMCA offers all kinds of wellness opportunities for active older adults—from baby boomers to seniors—including physical fitness, social activities and more.

There are several fitness classes for Active Older Adults. Drop in to a Group Exercise class like Active Older Adult Group Cycle or SilverSneakers® Circuit. You can also train with a small group by signing up for Group Personal Training classes like Building Better Balance or Strength Training for Seniors.

If you’re not sure how to get started, ask Member Services about group orientation at your local Y. During orientation, you’ll get an in-depth look at all programs and classes for active older adults, and how-to information for making the most of your Y experience.

No matter which YMCA you visit, there’s always something going on for active older adults—from exercise classes to learning opportunities to social clubs and more! Find out what’s happening in location-specific newsletters and schedules.

Wellness Consultations

Members can take advantage of a complimentary Wellness Consultation—an opportunity to become comfortable in your YMCA by meeting with a fitness professional. We’ll assess your goals and needs, and support your path to a healthy lifestyle. As part of a Wellness Consultation, you can request a fall risk assessment or senior fitness assessment. Ask for the Group Exercise/Active Older Adults Program Manager at your local Y to get more info and schedule your consultation.

Upcoming events

The Y organizes field trips for active older adults throughout the year and also holds special events. Don’t miss the variety of fun social activities available through your local Y.
