Active Older Adults (AOA) at the YMCA experience a strong sense of belonging and create a network of friends who provide support for sustained health and well-being.

Through on-going, fun, safe, and engaging programs, AOA members build relationships and increase self-confidence while celebrating the successes of each member of their community.

At the YMCA, we’ve made the health and fitness of our seniors a top priority by providing programs for the spirit, mind, and body. 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 together for camaraderie, fellowship and fun. Most seniors programs are free for Y members.


Come join your YMCA friends for social gatherings and informative health presentations including coffee and light snacks. If you are interested in forming a special interest group, see the Health & Wellness Coordinator at your branch.
