Sit and Be Fit Exercise Classes
The YMCA desires to provide classes for a variety of fitness levels, ages, and strengths. The design of our Sit and Be Fit program is to work on upping muscle strength, flexibility, and core strength. This helps your balance all while using your own body resistance, light weights, and exercise bands! Using a chair, the class works with resistance bands & light weights to give you a workout without being on your feet. Therefore, this lessens the impact of exercise on your joints. We recommend this class especially for those with arthritis, as this class has less pressure on joints.
This low-impact exercise is perfect for older adults to build strength and stay active. This exercise program provides you the opportunity to strengthen your muscles without the impact of running or intense movements. Come try the best-seated workout you’ve ever experienced!
Sit & Be Fit is available at our East Shore, West Shore, and Northern Dauphin County YMCA branches for our Active Older Adults. Advanced classes are available at select branches, as well. The class is free for facility members but is open to program members for a small fee.
