Silver Sneakers

Through group exercise classes and aquatic programs that concentrate on mobility and flexibility, dance classes, social events, and volunteer activities, the YMCA is bringing Seniors / Active Older Adults (AOA) together for camaraderie, fellowship and fun!

The Y participates in several Medicare Advantage programs including Silver SneakersSilver & Fit and Renew Active (available January 2021) which provides free memberships to the Y. Please bring your insurance card to the Y location of your choice or call in advance to check your plan’s eligibility.
