Active at Every Age

Our Ys are committed to providing health and wellness opportunities to everyone, at every stage of life. Our YMCA offers aqua exercise, yoga, stretching, toning classes, Pickleball, connection and community, and more. Our programs are designed for older adults and promote fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and connection. Our volunteer opportunities also help build lasting relationships, community ties and provide an environment for giving back and making an impact.

Personal Training & Wellness Programs

We all need the advice of an expert sometimes, as well as the personal attention that comes with a trainer or coach. Our Ys offer personal training and coaching to help you set and meet your specific goals in order to live healthier. Living healthy is about spirit, mind, and body at every age and stage. We offer classes and programs for those dealing with chronic disease, cancer, joint and injury rehabilitation, and more.

If you’ve never picked up a pickleball paddle, you don’t know what you’re missing! This cross between tennis, ping-pong, and badminton is fun, easy to learn, and quickly brings out the competitor in all of us; plus anyone can play. Now YMCA of the North Shore members will have unlimited access to our drop-in playtimes while community members are able to purchase a monthly Pickleball Punch Pass.
