The YMCA of Metro Atlanta offers a host of programs for Active Older Adults!
Both land and water-based group exercise classes are a great way to stay active. We offer land-based classes that can be done standing or from a chair, so something for every level. Our Active Older Adult groups are some of the most active groups at the Y and many branches have active older adult luncheons, field trips and other social activities!
Social activities and exercise are both important components for active older adults because they help with loneliness and prevent feelings of isolation. Organized social classes and groups also provide a sense of purpose and give older adults something to look forward to regularly.
Check with your local Y to find out more about activities for seniors and active older adults.
