At the YMCA we’ve made the health and fitness of our active older adults a top priority by providing programs for the spirit, mind and body. Through group exercise classes and aquatic programs that concentrate on mobility and flexibility, dance classes, social events and volunteer activities, the YMCA is bringing seniors together for camaraderie, fellowship and fun.
All Y members have access to a complimentary fitness orientation. Take a tour of our facilities, learn how to use each of our machines, and get started on a custom path to success through a fitness orientation.
When you’re ready to take your fitness regimen to the next level, check out our specialty fitness classes. Designed to help athletes hone their skills, specialty fitness classes focus on triathlon training, circuit training, sprints, and masters swim.
Feel confident in a training program just for women. Gain familiarity with strength and cardio equipment and learn the ways these machines can benefit your overall health. This class is a safe space to ask questions and deepen your knowledge of physical fitness.
Teens can use the weight room and cardio equipment after they have completed a teen fitness orientation and exam. This orientation helps teens to understand important safety information as well as how to stay within the limits of their physical abilities.
Prepare for a unique training tool that allows you to use your own body weight and gravity as resistance. While simple in design, the TRX Suspension Trainer tool allows you to combine and recreate entire body movements and motions that functionally engage your core and other major muscle groups involved in specific movements.
Try our Bootcamps for a fun, non-traditional way to get in shape and challenge yourself. Open to all fitness levels from beginner through advanced. Participants can reach their personal best through instruction by expert staff and innovative techniques.
Our nationally certified personal trainers are here to help you reach your goals, large and small. Your body deserves a unique fitness plan, tailored just for you. Meet one-on-one with a certified personal trainer for a free consultation. During this consultation, you will learn more about the personal training program options available to you, based on your goals and needs.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Do you want to participate in a 5K or 10K walk or run, but you’re not sure how to take that first step? The Y is here for you! Finishing a 5K or 10K for the first time or after a long hiatus can seem like a daunting task. That is where our YMCA of Austin’s Zero-to-10K Training Program can help. This program helps you prepare for race day in a knowledgeable and encouraging environment with others who are at a similar level of fitness as you.
Get your heart pumping and your feet jumping in adult dance classes at the Y. You can meet new friends who share your interests while engaging in activities that challenge your mind-body coordination. Healthy and fun, combined!
“My workout plan was tailored just for me and my needs. My coach gave me dedicated guidance on hydration, technique and form, as well as helping me overcome mental barriers. I’m so glad I took the class!”
