The Presence St. Mary's Fitness Center is a Certified SilverSneakers® facility with two certified instructors. Healthways SilverSneakers Fitness Program is a comprehensive older-adult physical activity program that addresses the needs of the Medicare (usually 65+) population. SilverSneakers eligible members of a sponsoring health plan receive a basic membership that includes the opportunity to participate in SilverSneakers group exercise classes as well as have full access to our facility at no charge to them.
In an effort to make exercise programs more accessible to older adults and offset health care costs, health insurance companies are offering to pay for SilverSneakers' fitness memberships. Humana Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement Plans, AARP Medicare Supplement by United Healthcare and SecureHorizons (AARP Medicare Complete) have adopted this idea that taking care of their insurance patrons and giving them the opportunity to exercise and socialize will make them healthier individuals.
The Presence St. Mary's Fitness Center offers SilverSneakers Muscular Strength and Range of Movement exercise class every Monday and Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. This class is designed to increase strength, range of movement, agility, balance, and coordination and to improve participants' functional capacities, physical fitness level, and sense of well-being. All others wishing to participate in the exercise class may do so by purchasing a basic membership to the Wellness Center.
If you belong to a Medicare health plan that offers SilverSneakers, you can bring your health plan membership ID card and enroll in our facility for FREE.
