Active Older Adult Land and Water Aerobic Programs

Group exercise is one of many ways the Y supports members in achieving their health and wellness goals. The YMCA Group Exercise Programs improve health, encourage social interaction and with motivating music, are one of the most enjoyable ways to move and feel great. Highly trained staff members lead the programs and offer modifications to movements to assist those at different levels or those with injuries. There are class formats that deliver a fun and effective exercise experience in a supportive group setting. Each has been professionally designed and tested through a comprehensive program development process, and all are continually refreshed so the programs evolve with the latest trends in group exercise and to keep you motivated and moving.

 

Group Exercise Classes are FREE and included with a YMCA Membership. No registration is necessary.
