Opportunities for Adults Age 55 and Better


The YMCA of Greater Houston offers a variety of opportunities for adults ages 55 and better to stay active, engaged and connected with others. From physical activity to social events and new adventures, ForeverWell provides opportunities for ALL to make this chapter in life the BEST one yet!

Physical Benefits

Adults 55 and older are at a higher risk for falls. Regular physical activity is proven to improve strength and flexibility which leads to improved balance and coordination.

Mental Health Benefits

Participating in regular physical activity can also lead to improved mental health and cognitive function.

Social Benefits

Maintaining strong social connections is important for older adults. Our group exercise classes and social and learning opportunities provide a great opportunity to meet new friends and to build connections.
