What is Silver Sneakers?
Silver Sneakers is a program that is fun and energizing for Senior Adults. It allows them to take control of their physical health through physical and social activities. This program is sponsored by Healthways in cooperation with Humana, AARP, Aetna, Anthem and United Healthcare. If you are on a Medicare Supplement plan or know someone who is, then you may qualify for a No Cost membership.
At the Owensboro Y, the Silver Sneakers Program includes:
Senior Fitness and Silver Sneaker Fitness Classes
These classes are for both men and women of all fitness levels. They are high energy classes that utilize elastic tubing, hand weights, and stability balls to increase musclar strength and balance. Both of which are needed for continued high quality of life.
Chair Yoga offers a variety of safe and effective options to increase flexibility and balance. Chair Yoga is taught from a seated and/or standing position to enhance the flow and energy created in combination with restorative breathing exercises.
Senior Activites and Socal Gatherings
Board Games, Cards and Potlucks
The Silver Sneaker Program grants you full access to both YMCA Facilities and allows you to do anything you wish at the YMCA. As a Silver Sneaker Member you are not obligated to participate in any of the above programs but they are there for you to take advantage of.
