Active Older Adults

As we age, it is even more important to stay active. Here at the Y we offer adults a chance to get active with people just like you! Active Older Adults are welcome to participate in any of our fitness and aquatics classes.

We offer several classes specifically for adults 50 and older.

Please check our schedule for current class times and locations.

Yoga

Strengthen and lengthen core muscles through controlled movement and breath. Improve balance, flexibility and body awareness.

Zumba® Gold

Zumba® Gold was designed for the active older adult, the true beginner, and/or people who are not used to exercising, or people who may be limited physically. Zumba Gold is done at a much lower intensity. The same great Latin styles of music and dance are used and just as fun as the regular Zumba classes. Zumba® Gold classes strives to improve our balance, strength, flexibility and most importantly, the heart.
