At the YMCA of Western Ontario, we are committed to growth in spirit, in mind, and in body. We strive to ensure we have something for everyone at the Y, regardless of background, experience or age. 

The YMCA offers a wide variety of wellness opportunities and classes for active older adults – from baby boomers to seniors. Whether you’re into swimming or Aqua fit, Tai Chi or meditation, pickle ball or aerobic classes, yoga or dance, we promise we can find something you love and enjoy doing!

We’ve made the health and fitness of those 55+ a major priority by offering a variety of classes and programs. Classes that concentrate on flexibility and mobility, volunteer opportunities, and free Thursdays. We’re bringing older adults together – for fitness, fun and friendship!

The Y is the place to be. The place where you find community…where you truly feel that you belong. 

Meet new friends and stay healthy, all while having fun.

We can’t wait to see you. 

Come and try the Y for free!
