Today, older adults are more health conscious than ever before. We offers seniors the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle and healthy relationships, through exercise programs, both in and out of the water, social and learning events and volunteer opportunities. Our active adult exercise classes promote fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and camaraderie. Our volunteer opportunities and social events help build lasting relationships and community ties, and our cultural and educational events help to keep our seniors up-to-date and informed in an ever-changing world.
Every Friday at the Y is Free Senior Friday! Any senior age 62+ can access the West Cook YMCA facility and any Complimentary (free) classes. Seniors must pay a drop-in fee for Specialty (pay) classes. Access to the facility includes the Spas/Locker Rooms, Wellness Center (including cardio and weight equipment), gyms, Community Learning Center, and the pool - including Senior Swim. Come by and see how the Y can serve you!
Senior Swim is held every Friday late morning to accommodate all seniors on Free Senior Friday. Please check the current pool schedule on our website or at the Member Engagement Desk to see the most current time slot!
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00am, seniors gather at the Y to play bingo! Donated prizes are always welcome. Play runs for about an hour and a half. Come for fun and laughter!
Once a month our seniors take field trips to area attractions, museums, casinos, restaurants, and many other exciting places! Transportation is provided.
