Beneficiaries who cannot get to a fitness location can participate in SilverSneakers Steps ®, a personalized fitness program that offers kits for general fitness, strength, walking or yoga. Kits are mailed to beneficiaries, and include DVDs and other exercise tools that can be used at home or on the go.

The SilverSneakers online community offers a secure environment that allows beneficiaries to create exercise and nutrition plans, track fitness progress, find health articles and recipes and gain additional support and encouragement.

The SilverSneakers Philosophy

Using proven methodologies based upon more than 16 years of science and outcomes, the SilverSneakers Fitness Program increases physical activity in older adults, resulting in higher well-being and lower health care costs. Physical activity can reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, may relieve symptoms of depression, helps to maintain independent living, and enhances overall quality of life. Strength training is recommended as part of a comprehensive physical activity program among older adults and may help to improve balance and decrease risk of falls. 1 SilverSneakers engages participants in active behavior change through access to a variety of physical activity venues and senior-specific programming that incorporates physical fitness and social experiences.

“Coventry Health Care is committed to offering solutions that help their beneficiaries enjoy optimal health. By significantly expanding access to the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, Coventry is confirming that this commitment includes enhancement of the health and well-being of their Medicare Advantage beneficiaries,” said Ben R. Leedle, Jr., Healthways president and chief executive officer. “Many more Coventry beneficiaries will now be able to enjoy this time-tested, proven program that provides a unique combination of exercise and social support."

The SilverSneakers Fitness Program was founded in 1993 and serves more than 9 million eligible members.
