When the gym I'd worked out in for 7 years recently closed, I decided to investigate the Silver Sneakers program which is offered as part of my pension health care benefit at no cost to me. I wish I'd joined earlier because I've enjoyed every minute of my membership. I...Read more
In my community there are no Silver Sneakers participating gyms because they cannot stand dealing with Silver Sneakers administration. And when a new gym in town tried to sign up with Silver Sneakers to serve seniors, Silver Sneakers said it could take a year - A YEAR...Read more

SilverSneakers Fitness Program Review

Do you have something to say about Silver Sneakers? What happened? What can we help you with?
