The Attleboro Y has a thriving community of active older adults who make the Y and physical activity an important part of their healthy lifestyle. In fact, because we appreciate their commitment to healthy living, we offer senior members reaching their 76th birthday a membership price freeze for life!
Update about Classes & Programs:
Due to the current community health concerns and the mandated closing non-essential businesses, we will not offer any indoor classes or programs until we’re allowed to reopen. Get all of the details you need here. However, we are able to offer Outdoor Fitness and Outdoor Personal Training in addition to our Live Online Classes at this time.
Senior Strength Training
Senior Strength is a free 4-week course for our senior members who want to learn how to use the various types of strength equipment offered at our Y. Led by a certified trainer, each class will build on the next, introducing participants to proper technique and safety while learning how to create a routine to follow for improved strength, posture, and balance. Registration is required. Space is limited.
Join us for Enhance Fitness, a proven senior fitness and arthritis management program that improves your endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility. It reduces your arthritis symptoms with safe, low impact exercises led by certified instructors in a relaxed atmosphere that promotes fun, laughter, friendship, and smiles.
All ages are welcome.
If you’ve never picked up a pickleball paddle, you don’t know what you’re missing! This cross between tennis, ping-pong, and badminton is easy to learn, but quickly brings out the competitor in all of us. This game has become very popular in retirement communities, because it allows players to maintain the thrill of competition, without some of the physical stress and injuries that other sports can cause. For more information, contact Joanne O’Brien at email@example.com.
We’re excited to welcome back our Pickleball community to the Y with outdoor pickleball playing times at our Norton Outdoor Center! In keeping with current social distance regulations, each hour-long session of play is limited to 10 people. We strongly encourage players to reserve their places in advance.
