SILVER SNEAKERS

Silver Sneakers is a program that allows our older adults to take charge of their health by participating in physical activities. Classes offer our seniors low impact and joint friendly sessions involving cardio, flexibility, strength training, and coordination exercises. Light weights, elastic tubing, and stability balls are incorporated with an opportunity for modification based on ability. Schedules vary by branch.  Classes are FREE for members

Some insurance providers will cover a Senior's monthly membership fees as a preventative health benefit. Consult your provider to find out if you qualify.
