silversneakers Looking for a new kind of workout geared for your age group? SilverSneakers is a fitness program for older adults and seniors and we offer SilverSneakers at our HealthQuest Wellness Center.

As we age, it becomes increasingly important to continue a daily regimen of exercise.  Physical activity keeps the body fit and the mind sharp.

SilverSneakers was founded in 1992 and is a program designed to help older adults take control of their health and fitness in an accepting and supportive environment.

SilverSneakers has locations nationwide and is equipped with conditioning rooms, exercise equipment, a pool and sauna. Workout classes are also available. Unlike an ordinary gym, SIlverSneakers focuses solely on exercise for older adults, tailoring classes for beneficial exercises.

Classes also focus on healthy living education. Learning how to eat healthy and reduce stress is just as important as being physically active.

SilverSneakers is available as part of many health plans. If you’re interested in learning more about the program or finding a location near you, check out the SilverSneakers website.
