Senior Programs

A vital part of the Woonsocket YMCA’s extensive programming is its offerings for senior citizens. One of those is Seniors in Motion, a program that combines floor and pool exercises to improve cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone and flexibility. Light weights and other hand-held equipment are used throughout the course, which costs $15 for YMCA members and $50 for nonmembers.

 

Silver Sneakers®, is a preventative exercise program that enhances the quality of life for mature adults across the country. Health Care Dimensions (HCD) developed the Silver Sneakers® Fitness Program over a decade ago, and it has since grown into the largest senior-focused exercise program in the United States. The partnerships between HCD and HMOs allow Medicare-eligible members of these health plans to participate in YMCA programs at no additional cost.

In addition, senior citizens can participate in aerobics, spinning and yoga classes; move and groove to Zumba; use a variety of cardiovascular and weight resistance equipment; or reserve a time for a relaxing and therapeutic massage.
