“The National Institute on Aging finds that staying physically active and exercising regularly can help prevent or delay some diseases and disabilities as people grow older,” said Roxanne Davis, YMCA Community Liaison. “We encourage everyone to stay active, no matter their age. Physical activity improves strength, energy and flexibility. Growing older shouldn’t have to mean losing strength or the ability to perform everyday tasks and the other enjoyable activities. The Fun Never Retires at the YMCA!”
At the YMCA, not only do we focus on senior health fitness, we make sure our older adult members know they are an important part of our YMCA family. Meet new friends every time you visit the YMCA. The YMCA helps older adults remain active and vital contributors to our communities. The Y has fitness classes specifically designed for older adults. They give participants an opportunity to stay physically active, or in some cases, to overcome their fear of exercise and begin being physically active. Y ForeverWell programming accommodates a wide variety of interests and functional abilities of older adults as well as social opportunities, including:
- Water Exercise, ForeverWell Group Exercise Classes, ForeverWell Strength and Conditioning
- Balance and Fall Prevention, Seniors/Beginning Yoga, Line Dancing and Zumba
- Social gatherings including Lunch and Learns, lunch and dinner outings, field trips, concerts, plays and much more.
