Did you know that SilverSneakers has so many programs and options?
You can get a regular gym membership, find a Flex Class, exercise at home program, use other participating gyms (as you travel), and have a choice of gyms and programs to participate in. You could stay busy all week, AND make new friends as you go.
The SilverSneakers gym membership program is offered as an added benefit with some Medicare Advantage plans. In 2019, the membership is included at no extra cost. Other Medicare Advantage plans may offer other vendors for their gym program, like Silver and Fit or Optum Fitness Advantage.
So, what are these Flex Classes?
Well …. these classes
may not be in a gym (for those who aren’t interested in walking into a gym). The classes are offered at churches, at a beach, at a school, etc. Flex Classes offered could be a Latin dance class, strength and balance classes, yoga, walking, water classes. (Some classes could be offered in a gym, though).
SilverSneakers members boast that the classes give them social interaction, shared meals, holiday celebrations, possible friends to cruise with, etc. The classes have helped many stay connected especially when there has been a deceased spouse.
