No more searching for your favorite SilverSneakers routine. We’ve gathered them into one place for you to replay and enjoy to your heart’s content. 

How We Ranked Our Workouts

We came up with this list by sifting through our exercise library to find actual workouts — not just popular fitness articles. We then crunched the data to see which workouts you played over and over (a sure sign of popularity). Next, we revisited all the many positive comments you shared for each. 

Finally, we arranged the list in a way that’s safe for you to do one workout every day. We lead off with the most popular routine from our blog, but the rest of the list is varied.   


Here are your favorite follow-along SilverSneakers blog workouts. 

Remember: safety is key. The exercises here may be different or more advanced than your regular SilverSneakers class. If you have a chronic condition, an injury, or balance issues, talk to your doctor about how you can exercise safely.
