ACTIVE AND ENGAGED

The Y has fitness classes specifically designed for active 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.

Healthy Aging fitness programs accommodate a wide variety of interests and functional abilities of active older adults. Healthy Aging programs include water exercise, yoga, strength, and stretching classes. Our volunteer opportunities and social events help build lasting relationships and community ties that last a lifetime.
