Senior Citizens at the gym

Has anyone else noticed a big influx of Sr. Citizens at their gym? My gym started a Silver Sneakers and Yoga programs for Sr.s and it is really amazing how many are coming in. I have to say that I'm really enjoying it because all of them greet you with a smile and a warm "how are you" or something like that and it's great to see such kindness and enthusiasm come into the gym. I'm betting there are more sr.s now at my gym than 20-somethings!

Before my old gym closed, we had quite a few seniors and it was great. They didn't have "senior" classes but a lot of them would come to my tough sports conditioning class and it was awesome.

This made me wonder what "seniors" mean, at the gym, especially as I get older.
