Active Older Adults

Age is Just a Number, Young is an Attitude

Our Active Older Adults programs help seniors maintain a healthy lifestyle and engaged community. Our programs include healthy eating seminars, group fitness classes and events designed to promote mental agility, good health and independence. Programs are open to all ages. We offer a variety of classes such as Chair Yoga, Functional Fitness, Bible Study, Tai Chi and more. 

Absolutely thrilled to be a member at the Y—where the staff are friendly, talented, inspiring and supportive! The programs continue to be varied and geared to meet the needs of the members from young to old (me!). I feel part of a warm and wonderful community, thank you for all you do!
