Active older adults can gain strength and energy while enjoying a variety of social events at the YMCA. Activities range from group exercise classes designed especially for seniors to pot-luck lunches or special trips. Becoming an active older adult at the YMCA means staying connected to your community and offers the opportunity to volunteer through YMCA programs or in committee positions.weights-senior-woman
