Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging is feeling good enough to set new goals and
mobilized enough to implement them.

No matter what your fitness level or age, The YMCA at ACRC can be a
compass to navigate your own road to wellness. Did you know that
just 30 minutes of physical activity a day can help prevent illness and
control disease? That strength training can encourage bone formation?
That Tai Chi and yoga can help to prevent falls?

The YMCA at ACRC’s Healthy Aging classes & programs are focused on
developing & maintaining your functional ability to enhance your
overall wellbeing.
