A program designed just for you.
Healthy living is a choice for life. The Silver&Fit program is for Medicare beneficiaries who want to improve their quality of life by being more active and learning how to make better health choices. There are no copays, co-insurance, or deductibles when you are a part of Silver&Fit.
Depending on the option you chose when you signed up, your no-cost Silver&Fit membership offers the following:
- Silver&Fit Fitness Facility Option - You can use all of the standard services that are a part of your fitness facility* or exercise center membership. You can go to Full and Basic coed facilities, gender-specific fitness facilities, and exercise centers.
Full Co-ed Fitness Facility: These offer at least one class per week designed just for older adults. These classes focus on aerobics, flexibility, and strength training. Classes may be Silver&Fit yoga, Zumba Gold®, aqua, fall prevention, tai chi, strength/cardio training, or the Silver&Fit Signature Series Classes®.
*Some services/classes may require an added fee that are not part of the Silver&Fit Program. Additional fees may vary between facilities. Basic Co-ed Fitness Facility: You can use the aerobic and strength training equipment. Some facilities may also have classes, saunas, steam rooms, and whirlpools*. Gender-Specific Fitness Facility: These offer you the chance to work out with others of the same gender. These facilities may also offer classes appropriate for older adults. Exercise Center: These kinds of centers may include dance studios, swimming pools and recreation centers, parks, and yoga and Pilates studios. Services may differ by facility. You have already chosen a fitness facility that has the services you need. Your ID card is attached to the welcome letter in this packet. At the facility, you may be asked to show your Silver&Fit ID card and your fitness facility ID card each time you work out.
