Active Lives for Older Adults
Older adults, individuals 55 and above, are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All seniors benefit from engaging in Y activities that enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being. Maintain your health and functional ability with programs designed especially for the needs of seniors. We begin to lose bone density, balance and coordination as we age. The good news is that there is something we can do about it! Strength training and creating a fitness regime can deter or prevent these issues from occurring. Everyday activities will become easier, posture will improve and you’ll look and feel great!
Our exercise classes and organized physical activities promote fitness and good health while fostering friendships and camaraderie. The Landing Program Director Becky Zelent leads outdoor adventures, day and overnight trips and teaches Step Express and Zumba Gold classes.
