Silver&Fit is a wellness program offered to Medicare Advantage and Supplement beneficiaries. It works in conjunction with the Medicare Advantage plans to promote exercise and healthy living for seniors.
Silver&Fit Exercise and Healthy Aging Program is a service of American Specialty Health Fitness, a partner of Medicare. Members of Silver&Fit have the choice of joining a local partner gym or participating in the home fitness program. The home fitness program provides members with up to two kits per year from 15 choices, including Tai Chi, yoga, Pilates, water aerobics, strength exercise and walking.
Additional benefits include Active Options, which offer classes in non-traditional settings, such as local parks, as well as classes provided online or by DVD about healthy aging. Silver&Fit members receive newsletters full of healthy tips four times a year by mail. Members also receive access to the website, which offers motivational tips and challenges to help seniors stay active.
Silver&Fit Connected! allows users to track their workouts with fitness devices or apps. Workouts can be logged at participating facilities or while involved in the home fitness program. Website users can connect with other members to receive support and encouragement while working toward a fitness goal. Members can complete activities and challenges to earn rewards, such as hats and collector pins.
