J. L. Turner

Welcome to FiftyForward J. L. Turner Life Long Learning Center!

FiftyForward J. L. Turner Center is a partnership between FiftyForward and the YMCA of Middle Tennessee.  The Center provides enrichment for older adults through age appropriate health, wellness, social and educational opportunities.  As the Center is co-located at the Bellevue Family YMCA, FiftyForward is able to offer individual and group exercise classes in a wellness environment.  Our facility opened in 2006, and this unique partnership was the first of its kind in the country.  All Bellevue YMCA members who are 50+ are automatically enrolled members of J. L. Turner Center.  Please stop by or a call to learn about all of the wonderful activities that our members enjoy!

For more information on membership, please visit the Bellevue YMCA/FF website.
