Active Older Adults


S.A.I.L. (Staying Active and Independent for Life)

Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) is a strength, balance and fitness program for adults 65 and older. Performing exercises that improve strength, balance and fitness is the single most important activity adults can do to stay active and reduce their chances of falling. The entire curriculum of activities in the Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) program can help improve strength and balance, if done regularly. The class consists of 24 one-hour long sessions. Participants must commit to at least 16 of the 24 sessions to register. Free for YMCA members AND Non-Members.

Class options include virtual AND in person at the YMCA. Contact Blake at 218.739.4489 ext 205 for more information.

Living Well with Chronic Conditions

80% of older adults have a chronic condition such as hypertension, arthritis, lung disease, diabetes, depression or anxiety. Managing your chronic condition can improve your health and quality of life. Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences and help each other solve problems as they carry out their plans. Topics include nutrition, exercise, medication use, pain management, emotions and communicating with medical providers.
