Older Adults Programme London - Central YMCA Club

Older Adults Programme

Fitness isn’t just a young person’s game — we’re passionate about everyone embracing physical activity no matter their age! Our Older Adults Programme features fitness classes tailored to those over 60 and also provides plenty of social opportunities for our members.

All our classes are specifically designed for people wanting activities of a low to moderate intensity and are an ideal way to help over 60s maintain independent living.

Social teas
A key part of the Older Adults programme is to encourage social interaction between our members. That’s why we hold three weekly social tea events at the Club.

Social tea events take place on:
Tuesdays 2pm – 2:30pm
Thursdays 4pm – 4:20pm

These allow a relaxing, informal space for members to catch up and broaden their friendship circles.

Social trips
We offer our members the opportunity to broaden their cultural and intellectual horizons by taking part in a variety of social day trips. This could be anything from a daytrip to Brighton to a group walk on the outskirts of London. These trips are often subsidised, and the activities and destinations are decided upon by the members themselves.
