By the Editors of SilverSneakers |

Watch real SilverSneakers members having real conversations about the things that matter to them.

Xiomara Olazagasti, or Sam as she prefers to be called, is a SilverSneakers Ambassador. Sam got together with her friends, Sandra and Pat, in Orlando, FL, to enjoy coffee and discuss important topics related to aging and exercising.

If you’ve ever attended a SilverSneakers class, you know the best part is talking with friends after class. Hear from these SilverSneakers friends as they talk about what inspires them, how they support each other and how they stay connected while staying active.

“I found that coming here, starting with SilverSneakers classes, and the evolution we’ve gone through, has been fantastic for me.”

Pat

“Aging really isn’t an issue, it’s just like a stage of life, another season that we’re going into.”

“If I didn’t have SilverSneakers, I would be shopping because that was my exercise.”

“It’s important to me, it’s part of my life and want it to continue to be a part of my life. It touches every important area to me.”

Sandra

“It gives you a reason to get up every morning, gives you a reason to look forward to every day.”

“I said to myself when I retire, I’m going to do something, I’m not going to be a couch potato all day long.”

“I started learning yoga and Zumba and, actually, I love it now!”

“I’ve also found so many new friends here.”

“If you move today one step, tomorrow you move two, and then you keep on increasing … that helps you to exercise your body, your mind and that’s a big accomplishment for anybody.”
