Aug. 21, 2017 – August 21st marks National Senior Citizens Day: a day to celebrate aging! Youfit Health Clubs has the resources to keep your mind and body in a healthy state at any age. By offering programs specifically for ages 65 and over, like SilverSneakers®, Youfit aims to prove that age is just a number and it’s never too late to start living and feeling better.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, SilverSneakers is the nation’s leading community fitness program designed specifically for older Americans. SilverSneakers helps older adults take greater control of their health by engaging participants in more frequent exercise, strength training, aerobics and flexibility training through a variety of venues and programming.
“I wish more people knew exactly what SilverSneakers is all about,” says Donna Culley, Youfit SilverSneakers instructor. “Either people don’t know they have access to it, or they don’t realize how approachable the workout is – each class is truly adjustable to all fitness levels.”
Culley, a 2017 finalist for SilverSneakers Instructor of the Year, also notes that SilverSneakers is one of the best classes she’s ever participated in. “It’s so fun! Many students come for the workout, but they keep coming back for the social aspect.”
SilverSneakers classes are available wherever YouGX group exercise classes are available, but SilverSneakers memberships are available at all Youfit Health Clubs locations – providing access to quality equipment and specialized group classes to those qualified.
Active adults can check if they are eligible for the SilverSneakers benefit by visiting silversneakers.com, getting them one step closer to keeping active at any Youfit location. All new Youfit members also receive a free personal training assessment with a YouCoach.
