Active Older Adultsgroup of active older adults laughing and smiling

Exercise is especially important for older adults. A regular routine can help reduce common physical ailments such as stiff joints and aching backs, therefore making activities of daily living and recreational pursuits easier. The Thomasville YMCA defines an Active Older Adult as an individual 55 years or older. Professional YMCA staff will lead all programs and will motivate and encourage participants to reach their full potential.

SilverSneakers and Renew Active are health and fitness programs designed for adults 65+ that are included with many Medicare Plans. With your insurance reimbursement membership, you can enjoy membership access to the Thomasville YMCA at no extra cost.


SilverSneakers® is a preventative exercise program that enhances the quality of life for older adults across the country. Through the program, members gain access to customized SilverSneakers classes that improve strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance.

Renew Active

Renew Active from UnitedHealthcare is available with select Medicare Advantage plans. Designed around you and your goals, Renew Active offers access to YMCA facilities and group fitness classes, as well as online brain exercises to help keep both your body and mind active at no additional cost.
