SilverSneakers is Changing the Aging Stereotype

As a senior, you know the benefits of going to the gym, but who wants to go to a gym filled with young athletic fitness magazine models? Talk about feeling out of place and uncomfortable as a senior…

Luckily, the SilverSneakers SilverSneakers program is changing this along with shifting the stereotype regarding seniors and aging. 

In today’s society, we’re constantly shown a negative image of what it means to age, yet we see the opposite of this everyday at our FPG Seniors Clubs. Our members are healthy, active, social and loving life.

“Just because we are seniors, doesn’t mean we don’t want to live a healthy and active lifestyle,” says a member. SilverSneakers focuses specifically on fitness and wellness programs for seniors 60 years of age and older. It is becoming more and more common for seniors to work out instead of sitting on the couch, and this is changing society’s perception of the elderly.  

Nearly all Medicare Advantage Plans accepted by Family Physicians Group offer free SilverSneakers memberships. Check out the silver sneakers health plan locator to see if your plan offers the program free of charge.

Don’t worry, if your plan doesn’t cover the SilverSneakers program, you can still join by paying a small fee per class at a rate cheaper than your favorite latte.

Keep fit at our Seniors Clubs

We invite you to try the SilverSneakers program for yourself. For more information call 1.866.999.3741 or send us a message, today. We encourage your feedback please comment below, or you can chat with us on Facebook and Twitter.
