Active Older Adults (AOA) in the Y experience a strong sense of camaraderie and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Through fun, safe, and engaging activities and events, AOA members increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement while building relationships and celebrating the success and milestones of each other within their AOA community.
Older adults, individuals 55 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our community. All AOA's 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 specifically 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, delay or prevent these issues from occurring. Our Active Older Adult classes will teach you how to build muscle strength, endurance and increase mobility.
