Auburn YMCA to offer arthritis exercise program


The Auburn YMCA-WEIU will offer Enhance Fitness beginning Monday, Jan. 16.

The evidence-based group exercise program for older adults helps participants overcome the obstacles of living with arthritis and revitalize their well-being in a safe and supportive community. The program uses simple, easy-to-learn movements to motivate individuals to stay active, and it has also been recognized as an effective fall prevention program, the YMCA said in a news release.

The program will meet at 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for 16 weeks in an accessible group exercise room at the Auburn YMCA-WEIU, 17 William St., Auburn.

Preregistration is required. The program costs $90 for nonmembers and is free for members. To register, visit auburnymca.org or visit the member services desk.
