SilverSneakers is an exercise program specifically designed for older adults with the goal of keeping you engaged and interested through fun and social activities. Enjoyable fitness activities may encourage older adults to stay healthier in the long run.

What does a SilverSneakers membership include?
A SilverSneakers fitness program includes access to all kinds of perks. General membership includes access to all participating locations and core services. In addition, the program offers:

  • Program Advisors who serve as informational guides to fitness facilities and benefits
  • HealthwaysFIT.com, an online resource for members to monitor fitness progression, track health-related current events, obtain nutritious recipes, watch exercise videos, and more
  • Seminars and special events related to health and fitness
  • SilverSneakers Steps for members who don’t live near a fitness facility

Note: Any services not included in a basic membership may require additional fees. Some of these can include personal training, tanning, or massage. If you mistakenly receive these services with a basic membership, you may still be charged. For more information, call the SilverSneakers Customer Service hotline at 1-888-423-4632, Monday through Friday, from 8AM to 8PM ET (TTY users call 711).
