The Pittsfield Family YMCA announces free SilverSneakers classes for eligible seniors from now until September 30, 2016.

Funded by a grant from the Elder Services of Berkshire County, Inc. and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, the Y’s SilverSneakers classes strive to increase heart-healthy endurance, muscle strength, balance and coordination to reduce injuries and falls.

SilverSneakers Classic meets Mondays-Wednesdays, 9:30-10:45 a.m. and Thursdays, 1:30-2:45 p.m.  Have fun and move to the music through a variety of exercises designed to increase muscular strength, range of movement and activities for daily living. Hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles and a SilverSneakers ball are offered for resistance. A chair is available if needed for seated or standing support

SilverSneakers Circuit meets Fridays, 9:30-10:30 a.m. Get moving with an aerobics class that’s safe, heart-healthy and gentle on the joints. The workout includes easy-to-follow low-impact movement, and upper-body strength, abdominal conditioning, stretching and relaxation exercises designed to energize your active lifestyle.

Eligible seniors must be at least 60 years old. Preference will be given to low-income seniors. To participate, visit the Y at 292 North Street to receive 2 free passes to SilverSneakers classes with the possibility of continued free guest access until September 30, 2016.
