Y Offers Silver Matinee Membership for Seniors
A YMCA Membership just got a whole lot simpler for local seniors. In January, 2017 the Y in Doylestown will unveil their Silver Matinee Membership. Anyone age 65 and over can join and have full access to Y facilities and programs between the hours of 11:30am-3:30pm for $30 per month.
The membership is in direct response to community need and member feedback with many seniors recommending the move to make membership more affordable and personalized to them.
“So many of our seniors tell us that they only use their membership for a limited number of hours during the day,” said Josh Tyler, Branch Director at the Doylestown Branch of Central Bucks Family YMCA. “Silver Matinee is in direct response to their need for an inexpensive option to stay active and be with friends.”
The membership provides access to the Y’s fitness center, gymnasium and aquatics center for four hours each day, 7 days a week. Programming that is free-to-members is also included as long as it falls between the 11:30am-3:30pm timeframe. Many classes popular with active older adults were strategically scheduled during the timeframe to enhance the membership including Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Beginner Taijiquan, Meditation, Zumba and aquatics-based programs including Arthritis therapy and aqua walk fit. The membership is only available in their Doylestown branch.
