Active Older Adults
The Sumter Family YMCA offers many classes to keep you fit, healthy and young at heart. Whether you enjoy yoga, want to improve your balance and agility, or try a class in the water, you are sure to find lots of fun and variety. Check them out!
Once you have joined the YMCA it is time for you take the first steps toward a healthier lifestyle. Our one-on-one consultation is a great way for you to learn all the programs and services the Y has to offer that can support you as you plan your path to better health. Contact our Wellness Director, Cathy Mason, for more details on this FREE member service.
Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. Enhance®Fitness is geared toward older adults. Those with a chronic condition, such as arthritis, need not worry; they will never have to do anything that hurts. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and use wrist and ankle weights for strength training.
