GREATER WICHITA YMCA 

Active Older Adults and Boomers

The Greater Wichita YMCA is committed to the good health, fitness, and wellness of everyone in our community - especially our aging neighbors. As the average life expectancy lengthens there are more years for us to look forward to. Engaging with good health, exercise, and fitness earlier in life is important but you're never "too old" to start exercising and pursuing a healthier lifestyle that can help prevent, manage, and treat diseases and ailments. 

We offer a variety of different programs and initiatives for active older adults, boomers, and seniors including:
