Slide 1
All FiftyForward centers have resumed in-person activities (following CDC protocols).

After closing our centers to in-person activities last March, we are happy to announce in-person programming has resumed at all Fifty Forward centers. RSVPs are required for class participation at every center. Contact your preferred location here.
FiftyForward is eager to find ways for our members to connect. As we continue to listen to officials regarding best practices we are also committed to offering older adults safe connections and socialization which are critical to good mental and physical health.
Check out our fun and engaging virtual/online and outdoor programming, too! There’s something for everyone.
Our team is committed to providing essential services and resources (especially food) to older adults in our community. If you know of an older adult in need of assistance, please call our resource line at 615-743-3416. We are here to help.

In addition to a very busy class schedule including low impact aerobics, yoga, and Tai Chi, we offer an extensive list of health and fitness classes including Zumba and strength training as well as two fitness rooms with cardio and resistance machines.

Call the center for more information, to arrange for a tour or request a copy of the newsletter. Information about classes and events for FiftyForward Donelson is also printed in Forward Focus, available at the center and at area public libraries.
