As you may know exercise is a key part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and can support a healthy immune system1. We encourage you to continue to use your SilverSneakers® benefit to stay active without leaving home.

Working out with your gym

Many SilverSneakers participating locations are providing their members with virtual options, including online classes and workouts, since we can’t go into gyms. Check with your location2 by visiting their website or Facebook page to see what virtual workouts are available to you.

SilverSneakers On-Demand

Included in your SilverSneakers membership is SilverSneakers On-DemandTM which gives you access to 200+ online workout videos. Log in to SilverSneakers.com (or create an account) to view on-demand workouts like SilverSneakers Classic, Yoga, etc.

Fitness mobile app

You can access workout programs that can be tailored to your level on our fitness app, SilverSneakers GOTM. You can modify the exercises to make them easier or harder with just one click. Download the app at the Apple or Google stores today.

Facebook Live classes

SilverSneakers is also offering Facebook Live classes. Please visit and follow the SilverSneakers Facebook page for more details about each class, or to find the replay of previous classes.
