The Berkshire Family YMCA is proud to support SilverSneakers.
What is SilverSneakers?
SilverSneakers is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity. Health plans around the country offer the SilverSneakers program to people who are eligible for Medicare or to group retirees. SilverSneakers provides a fitness center membership to any participating location across the country.
Do I have SilverSneakers?
The SilverSneakers Fitness Program is a benefit offered to members of many Medicare health plans and Medicare Supplement carriers. If you are part of a Medicare health plan or if you are a group retiree, you may already have the SilverSneakers benefit.
The Berkshire Family YMCA offers these SilverSneakers fitness classes:
- SilverSneakers Classic: Senior strength training can improve the quality of life at any age. This class includes using the SRRI exertubes to build strength, balance and flexibility at a safe pace. This class will focus on improving posture while aiding the prevention of osteoporosis, arthritis and the loss of muscle mass.
- SilverSneakers Circuit: This class involves a little more aerobic activity than the Senior Strength Training class. It also aims to build strength, balance and flexibility at a slightly more advanced pace. This class will help prevent osteoporosis, arthritis and the loss of muscle mass through its exercises.
