Our Active Older Adults are a staple at the Y. Stop anyone of them and you will get a heartfelt story of how the Y has and continues to impact their life. We are delighted to offer a selection of class geared towards our active older population.
Active Older Adults (A.O.A.) Training:
This class utilized both our selectorizer strength training and free weights to create a circuit class one day and a large group exercise program another day in the gym.
This class is great for fitness beginners and those wanting to maintain their current fitness level. Every class includes a warm up, cool down and emphasizes areas in cardio, strength, flexibility and balance training mixed with social interaction.
This class is a little less intense and targeted towards our senior population. Class size is limited to first 12 participants.
Silver Sneakers Classic:
A basic exercise class designed for seniors who would like to stay active. This chair based class will give you a challenging yet fun workout. We have two class times available, twice a week. Class size is limited for safety of participants and to provide a quality class for all.
Silver Sneakers Yoga:
This class will move your whole body through a complete series of poses in either a seated or standing position. Chair support is offered to safely perform a variety of poses designed to increase flexibility, balance and range of motion. Restorative breathing exercises and a final relaxation will promote stress reduction and mental clarity.
Social & Coffee Fellowship:
Perhaps not our “healthiest” offering, but this half hour coffee and social session takes place after our A.O.A. classes and promotes health of the mind with social interaction and fellowship.
