The Y (formerly known as YMCA) Gold Fit offers fitness classes for seniors in Mt Roskill. Based on functional movements designed to help seniors maintain their range of movement and physical capability, the programme couples tailored individual programmes with group activities. Taking a holistic approach to wellness the programme incorporates a focus on active movement with social activities, engagement and community.
Whether you’ve been active in the past and then commitments and life got in the way, or if you’ve never been a particularly sporty type, the our Gold Fit programme is a path to greater fitness and well being for people over 60 who want to stay active in a supportive, social environment.
During these holistic fitness classes for seniors at Lynfield Recreation Centre, we’ll discuss your goals, medical conditions and physical capabilities to ensure you get a programme that’s right for you. Classes consist of a group warm up, your own personalised exercise programme, and a group cool down. Making your golden years gold. Gold Fit.
An integral part of the programme is social engagement which is built into the fabric of the programme through morning tea's but also includes group outing which could be anything from high tea, to dinner or a BBQ at someone's house.
The programme incorporates the opportunity for seniors to relive childhood memories or try new activities they've always wanted to. In the past our programmes have involved bike riding lessons, drumming lessons, kayaking trips to Rangitoto and camping.
To support the programme The Y assigns a dedicated co-ordinator. This ensures not only consistency but the opportunity for our staff to build strong relationships with participants making it easier to understand your unique needs.
