Active Older Adults (AOA) at the Y experience a strong sense of belonging and a network of friends who provide supportive communities for sustained health and well-being. Older adults are a significant and growing segment of our communities. All AOA benefit from engaging in YMCA activities that enhance connections, decrease a sense of isolation, and improve overall well-being.
At the YMCA of Laurel Highlands, we consider the health and fitness of our AOAs a top priority. As a part of the AOA program, we offer a variety of exercise classes for men and women ages 50+. Our AOA Fitness classes are available to help members that are looking for a specialized workout to improve overall well-being at a friendly pace. Our AOA Group Exercise Classes concentrate on mobility and flexibility, improving strength, coordination, and balance in everyday activities.
Along with specialized group exercise classes we offer social activities such as monthly Lunch & Learns with informational speakers, Y Knot Knitters group, and bus trips to casinos, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, & Lancaster. We are also involved in projects that benefit the community and important causes such as Relay for Life, Newborns in Need, American Heart Association & more.
In addition to our YMCA senior members, we currently accept the SilverSneakers, Silver & Fit, and Renew Active programs that provide a Y membership to those 65+ (or medicare eligible) with specific insurance plans. You can verify eligibility through your insurance company or by calling us at 724-547-9622.
