North Adams: Free fitness classes for eligible seniors


Eligible seniors can now attend free SilverSneakers classes at the Berkshire Family YMCA's Northern Berkshire branch until Sept. 30. Classes meet from 6 to 7 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and 7 to 8 a.m. Fridays.

Funded by a grant from the Elder Services of Berkshire County Inc. and the Mass. Executive Office of Elder Affairs, the classes strive to increase heart-healthy endurance, muscle strength, balance and coordination to reduce injuries and falls.

Eligible seniors must be at least 60 years old. Preference will be given to low-income seniors.

To participate, non-members should visit the Y at 22 Brickyard Court to receive two free passes to SilverSneakers classes with the possibility of continued free guest access until Sept. 30.

Members can take the classes as well at no additional cost.

For more information, call 413-499-7650, ext. 137.
