Silver Sneakers is a group exercise class that is FREE to qualifying seniors through their Medicare supplemental health insurance. (BCBS of NC offers Silver & Fit for $50 annually.) These classes however are open to everyone. If your supplemental insurance does not offer the program it is $10 for a single class or $70 for 10 classes that do not expire.
Silver Sneakers is a great exercise class set to music that utilizes small hand weights, a ball, tubing and a chair for balance (and occasional sitting). The instructor will begin class with you on your feet and moving to elevate your heart rate. You will work on your balance, coordination, muscular strength and range of motion during the 45 minute class. Added benefits are the friendships that develop between classmates and the fun you have.
