YMCA of Gloucester County

 

Silver Sneaker Program 

The YMCA is proud to participate in the Silver Sneakers® Fitness Program, the nation’s leading exercise program for older adults. More than just a gym membership, Silver Sneakers participants are offered specialized exercise classes, health education and social programs that have been shown to help older adults maintain good health, reduce health care costs and lead an active, independent lifestyle.

Silver Sneakers Classic

(Muscular Strength & Range of Movement)

Have fun and move to the music through a variety of exercises designed to increase muscular strength, range of movement, and activity for daily living skills. Hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles, and a ball are offered for resistance, and a chair is used for seated and/or standing support.

Silver Sneakers Yoga

Silver Sneakers Yoga will move your whole body through a complete series of seated and standing yoga poses. Chair support is offered to safely perform a variety of seated and standing postures designed to increase flexibility, balance and range of movement. Restorative breathing exercises and final relaxation will promote stress reduction and mental clarity.

Silver Splash

Silver Splash offers lots of fun with shallow water moves to improve agility, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. No swimming ability is required, and a special Silver Sneakers kick board is used to develop strength.

Silver & Fit

The Silver & Fit program is an exercise and healthy aging program providing unique, evidence-based fitness and health education activities for Medicare beneficiaries and group retirees. Silver & Fit members have access to (at no cost to them) memberships at participating contracted fitness club or exercise center.
