Active Older Adults
It's never too late to get in shape! Let the YMCA teach you practices that will keep you going strong for the next 50 years or more! We have fitness programs suited especially to the older adult. Most fitness programs run all year long and are held in the group exercise or wellness areas at each of our branches.
Many Medicare supplement plans include a free membership to the Y. Check with your insurance provider to find out if your insurance plan provides you with a free membership. The YMCA is currently accepting Medicare supplement plans which include the Silver Sneakers® program, United Health Care’s Renew Active program, and the Silver and Fit program. If you are part of a Medicare health supplement plan you may already be eligible for a free membership. Provide the YMCA with the insurance confirmation code that is available through your Medicare supplement plan to get started.
Our active older adults programs are fun and energizing and helps older adults take control of their health through physical activity and social events. Our Silver sneakers® classes are designed to increase range of motion, coordination and balance for older adults. Our water fitness classes are designed to give seniors an excellent workout to improve strength, flexibility, balance and endurance without the impact that may occur in a class outside of the water.
