SilverSneakers fitness programs are the nation’s leading fitness program designed exclusively for Active Older Adults.

One out of five people 65 or older is eligible for a SilverSneakers membership.  If you’re a group retiree, or part of a Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement Health plan, you may already have a SilverSneakers membership.  Be active in this adult wellness program.  To find out if your health plan offers SilverSneakers, simply call 252-438-2144 or stop by the Henderson Family YMCA.  If you’re eligible, just sign up.  No fees.  It’s that easy.  Spouses and families must join separately.
