Active Older Adults (AOA) in the Y experience a strong sense of belonging and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through on-going, fun, safe, and engaging programs, activities, and events AOA members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of each older adult within their AOA community.

Older adults, individuals 55 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All AOA benefit from engaging in Y activities that enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being.

Maintain your health and functional ability with programs designed especially for the needs of Active Older Adults. 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 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!
