Because we know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y includes more than just working out. In addition to our physical fitness classes and facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

At the YMCA you are not just a part of the facility, you become part of our community!  We have many options and activities for our active older adults and Silver Sneakers members!

Get active and involved with other lively members at the Y!
