Senior Wellness

Starting Monday July 20th we're offering Senior Hour three days per week Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:30 - 2:30 where only our senior members will be using our facility. Senior members are welcome to use the facility at other times too. These hours are for those senior members who would feel more comfortable with having just seniors at the Y during their workout time. We will also have Silver Sneakers classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:30 - 2:15 PM. Please call ahead to reserve your spot in class, or use of the fitness center or pool.
