At the Oneonta Family YMCA we embrace a holistic view of aging. We incorporate both the physical and social aspect of health and well-being. We know that healthy lifestyles are achieved through nurturing spirit, mind and body, well-being and fitness at the Y includes more than just working out. We provide opportunities for our aging community to socialize and engage in meaningful relationships. Thus supporting physical, intellectual and spiritual strength.  

We participate with Silver SneakersSilver and Fit, and offer many Senior Friendly (SF) Wellness classes. You can choose from a variety of group fitness classes to accommodate your schedule and fitness level. Our energetic and inspiring instructors are ready to motivate you to be your best. Take a class today, and you’re sure to sweat, strengthen, relieve stress and have a great time! Take a look at our Wellness Class Schedule above for details. 


How Frequently Should I Exercise?

ACSM lists the following recommendations for exercising:  

Cardiorespiratory: 30-60 minutes of moderate intensity 5x’s weekly or 20-60 minutes at vigorous intensity 3x’s weekly.

Resistance: 3x’s weekly with 48 hours between sessions.

Flexibility: 2-3 days a week minimum but can be done daily.


Registration vs. Flex Passes

Registration opens the last week of each month for the following month. By registering for a class you are reserving your spot in the class for the month and is good for that month only.  Some classes have limits on participant number or limited equipment.  These classes are often very popular and fill up quickly.  So if you love that class you may want to register by clicking the blue link!

Flex Passes allow you to drop into a class rather than registering and paying for 4 weeks of a class. Flex Passes take into consideration busy lives and you can attend as your schedule allows. Though if it is a popular class those who register will be given priority over a drop in Flex Pass participant. You may purchase one pass at a time to use in any class or multiple passes. Click the blue link to purchase on-line today! You will be provided with a key tag at the Front Desk to swipe each time you come to class. Your class will be deducted from the number of passes you have purchased.
