SilverSneakers Adds Digital Resources to Keep Members Socially and Physically Engaged at Home During COVID-19 (coronavirus)
Chandler, AZ—SilverSneakers®, the nation’s leading community fitness program designed for seniors, is adding digital resources to support its members as the spread of COVID-19 keeps people home and quarantined. On Thursday, March 19 at 8:30 a.m. MST, we will kick off a virtual workout series on Facebook Live. To protect the health, well-being and safety of members and to support them to stay active, SilverSneakers members can access an OnDemand video library offering a variety of workout formats and intensity levels for those members just starting out their fitness journey and those who have already established a regular routine of physical activity. Tivity will continue to add new content to its digital library to provide additional resources and options as the COVID-19 situation develops.
Exercise plays an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing stress, and supporting a strong immune system. SilverSneakers members have a variety of options to choose from to stay fit and active, by staying engaged digitally through our SilverSneakers GO™ app or accessing our SilverSneakers OnDemand video library of workouts, nutrition, stress management, and educational materials. SilverSneakers national trainers and FLEX instructors will also be hosting virtual exercise classes available to SilverSneakers members.
“As COVID-19 continues to affect American communities, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention),” said Steve Janicak, Healthcare Business Unit President. “SilverSneakers has a long history of improving health and keeping SilverSneakers members socially engaged and connected — and in these challenging times, we will work hard to ensure that our members can stay connected in a safe and healthy way — because we all need to be connected — now more than ever as we work through this national crisis together.”
SilverSneakers GO, a mobile fitness app that fits the goals, preferences, and lifestyles of active adults. With workout programs designed specifically for seniors, SilverSneakers GO unlocks access to a library of exercises, audio-guided meditations, stress management, walks and activities created by trained SilverSneakers instructors to motivate users and help them achieve fitness goals.
