Seniors

Wheeling YMCA offers our active older adults an opportunity to increase their physical activity, enjoy social interaction, and learn healthy lifestyle skills. We provide a variety of programs while promoting the benefits of health and wellness.

Silver Sneakers

Combine fun with fitness to increase your cardiovascular and muscular endurance power with a standing circuit workout. Upper body strength work with hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles and a ball is alternated with non-impact aerobic choreography. A chair is offered for support, stretching and relaxation exercises.

Silver Splash

Certified instructors teach a variety of water-weight exercises in the pool. This class is designed to improve strength and cardiovascular fitness while minimizing impact to the tendons and joints.

Senior Bingo

Every month we will host a bingo event for seniors. Participants can enjoy light refreshments and play for a chance to win Y money. The event is free to members and non-members.

Silver Sneakers Heath Workshops

Once a month we will offer health workshops just for Silver Sneakers and Silver and Fit members. Topics will change each month but past workshops have included blood pressure screenings, nutritional guidelines from a registered dietician, recipes and suggested grocery lists, and more.
