Affordable recreation for seniors in Bonita Springs at the Y

See also

Affordable entertainment for seniors is always a challenge but may be as close as the local YMCA.

In Bonita Springs, Florida, the YMCA provides Silver Sneakers and Silver Fit exercise programs that are free to medicare recipients whose plans include membership in a health club or fitness program. This is typical of many advantage plans. The insurance plan takes care of the Y fees, and any Y service is available.

Silver Sneakers and Silver Fit are exercise programs for seniors using a chair as an extra tool for success. The exercise stresses muscular development and flexability.

If a membership is not part of the insurance plan, summer is a great time to buy a three-month only membership plan at reduced cost. Additionally, the Y's all have scholarship programs to help those with financial needs join.

Celebrating the beginning of summer, the Bonita Springs YMCA offers a free day at the Y on May 31 with door prizes such as a FitBit Flex to measure workout stats. The family day includes something for everyone with food, games, swimming and more.
