YMCA of Barry County

Active Older Adults

Improving The Nations Health and Well-Being

Because the Y knows that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing mind, body and spirit, well-being and fitness at the Y is so much more than just working out. Beyond fitness facilities, we provide educational programs to promote healthier decisions, and offer a variety of programs that support physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.

Through the YMCA of Barry County, we offer a sense of community, fellowship, and support that enriches people’s lives.

Senior Group Exercise

Our Aim is to Help You Feel Better.

Each class session includes cardiovascular, strength training, balance and flexibility exercises and the fostering of strong social relationships between participants. This is a moderate-impact class with high-impact results. Participants can use chairs for support, if necessary, and increase the weight they use for strength training at their own pace.

Become more active, energized, and empowered.
