Exercise looks different as we age. Our Active Older Adults (AOA) classes help those age 55+ improve and maintain fitness while connecting with others.

Classes designed specifically for older adults—including water exercise, gentle yoga, low-impact aerobics, Tai Chi and more—concentrate on improving the functional strength, stability and flexibility used in your day-to-day activities. Most classes are included as part of your membership and are open to SilverSneakers, Silver & Fit and YMCA members. New classes are offered on a regular basis, so check the schedules and give AOA classes a try!
