Senior Fitness, Silver Sneakers – Gold’s Gym Douglasville

Silver Sneakers Program Big Hit With Senior Community

Exercise and physical activity are some of the best things older adults can do to stay healthy.  Moderate exercise can improve health and mental flexibility. Some seniors are concerned that physical activity or exercise may be too strenuous or may do more harm than good.  In fact, it’s an inactive lifestyle that proves to do more harm than exercise does.

The SilverSneakers Fitness Program is the nation’s leading exercise program designed exclusively for older adults. Silver Sneakers membership is a full facility membership that provides unlimited access to all that Gold’s Gym offers. Muscular strength and range of motion, cardio conditioning, are just a few of our exercise options. Silver Sneakers is so much more than just another discount. This is a lifestyle intervention that is truly the best health insurance you can have! 

The program is typically offered to Medicare-eligible members of a sponsoring organization or health plan however anyone of any age is welcome to participate. Medicare-eligible members are adult’s age 65 or older, or, in some cases, those of any age deemed disabled and receiving Medicare.
