Active Lives for Older Adults
Older adults, individuals 55 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All adults benefit from engaging in Y activities as they enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being. Maintain your health and functional ability with programs designed especially for your needs. We begin to lose bone density, balance and coordination as we age. The good news is that there is something we can do about it! Strength training and creating a fitness regime can deter or prevent these issues from occurring. Our Active Older Adult and SilverSneakers classes will teach you how to build muscle strength, endurance and increase mobility. Everyday activities will become easier, posture will improve and you’ll look and feel great!
What is SilverSneakers?
SilverSneakers is a fitness program for active older adults that is included with many Medicare Advantage plans. SilverSneakers helps millions of people on Medicare defy the odds, shatter stereotypes and answer every challenge with, "I can do this!" SilverSneakers members can obtain a gym membership at a discounted rate!
