Active Older Adults

Programs for Active Older Adults at the YMCA of the Coastal Bend

Active older adults are one of our greatest resources.

We know that they are seeking a comfortable place to stay active, a sense of community and a desire to strengthen social ties. For good reason: socializing and volunteering have been shown to have positive effects on the health of older adults, and exercise has proven to promote mental agility, in addition to longevity and good health. Programs & activities for active older adults include:

SilverSneakers®:
SilverSneakers® is a preventative exercise program that enhances the quality of life for mature adults across the country. One of the largest senior-focused exercise programs in the United States, this partnership between HCD and HMOs allows Medicare-eligible members of these health plans to participate in YMCA programs at no additional cost.

Wellness programs:
We offer several fitness programs for older adults. Classes include MS-ROM, Cardio Circuit and water aerobics.

Water exercise:
This class has it all! Motivation, aerobic choreography, muscle conditioning, improved cardiovascular endurance and muscle tone by using the buoyancy and resistance of the water. Great workout with no impact or harmful effects on joints/muscles and stay cool. Ideal for all fitness levels, non-swimmers included.

Social Opportunities:
Make new friends at the YMCA as you join in wellness seminars, holiday luncheons and other organized activities.
