The Berkshire Family YMCA offers these SilverSneakers fitness classes:
SilverSneakers Classic: Senior strength training class includes using the SRRI exertubes to build strength, balance and flexibility at a safe pace. This class will focus on improving posture while aiding the prevention of osteoporosis, arthritis and the loss of muscle mass.
SilverSneakers Circuit: This class involves a little more aerobic activity than the Senior Strength Training class. It also aims to build strength, balance and flexibility at a slightly more advanced pace. This class will help prevent osteoporosis, arthritis and the loss of muscle mass through its exercises.
