At Countryside YMCA, we want to help people of all ages stay active. In today’s blog post, we’ll look at some YMCA fitness options.

Fitness program for seniors

Countryside YMCA takes the fitness and health of our community seriously. Countryside YMCA fitness is committed to helping the people in our community stay healthy through exercise and an active lifestyle. However, physical fitness doesn’t look the same for people of different ages. In fact, staying active looks far different for teenagers than it does for middle-aged adults. A healthy lifestyle for a young adult won’t be the same as that of a senior. In today’s blog post, Countryside YMCA fitness explains how you can stay active in every stage of life. 


Fewer things are more important for teenagers than an active lifestyle. Apart from the immediate health benefits of staying active, exercise also develops key habits and disciplines in a teenager’s life that can continue into adulthood. In many ways, exercise and an active lifestyle will never be easier than when you are a teenager. Countryside YMCA offers a variety of programs that can help teenagers stay active. We have sports leagues, and we provide a sports performance academy. Countryside YMCA also has the Motion Zone for teenagers who enjoy video games and want to stay active while also having fun.

Young and Middle-Aged Adults

Staying active might seem easy for teenagers because they typically have more time on their hands. With young adults and middle-aged adults, time might be harder to come by because of jobs and family obligations. So, how can they stay active? For young adults without kids, staying active is vital because the mid-20s represent your physical peak. That means that your mid-20s are the best time to get healthy and stay healthy. If you get out of shape as a young adult, getting back in shape becomes harder as you age. 

For young adults, being disciplined and getting exercise at a gym or by playing sports is key to physical fitness. Middle-aged adults may have a harder time staying fit, especially if they have children. Countryside YMCA fitness options are awesome because we have activities for children and child care.


Seniors need physical activity to stay healthy, and it also prevents falls and makes life more enjoyable. There are a variety of activities that help seniors stay healthy. For starters, eating healthy is a crucial first step. Drink plenty of water and eat fruits and vegetables to create balance in your diet. Exercise is also important. Look at a variety of Countryside YMCA fitness options, including group flexibility, water fitness, yoga, and pilates
