Ray Abele of Naples lifts a ball as YMCA instructor Rebecca Gill, left in black, demonstrates the exercise to others during a Silver Sneakers class at the YMCA in Naples on Monday. The class is hosted by the YMCA and open to Y members, guests, and Silver Sneakers members, but is part of a nationwide program through some insurance carriers created for people around 65 and up (though any age group can attend) to help them with strengthening, balance, and flexibility so they can continue to function with everyday activities from lifting and bending to pouring a jug of milk. The class is Mondays and Wednesdays in Naples and Tuesdays and Thursdays in Bonita Springs, with more classes to be added in October.
