Git Fit Gym participating in SilverSneakers program for seniors

Git Fit Gym in Cuba is now participating in the SilverSneakers program. The SilverSneakers program is open to people who are 65 or older and are part of a group retiree or Medicare health plan.

The SilverSneakers program is an innovative program offered through participating health plans, giving seniors the freedom to work out at their own leisure. The program is free to members who qualify. SilverSneakers is offered at more than 11,000 fitness centers nationwide and is the nation’s leading fitness program designed exclusively for older adults. Regular participation in the program has been proven to help older adults manage their health and increase strength, balance and endurance. 

Beau Edgar of Git Fit Gym said, “It’s helping people take advantage of what they are paying for. 2,000 people in a five-mile radius are eligible for the program and don’t know it, and that is what we want everyone to be aware of.”

Git Fit Gym is also looking to build its client base as they are getting ready to expand in the future.

“I recommend that anyone over the age of 65 call their insurance company to find out if they are eligible for this program,” Edgar added.

SilverSneakers members have access to a variety of benefits, including a basic fitness membership at any participating location around the country, a trained instructor at each fitness location to introduce you to SilverSneakers, show you around the location, and help you get started, health education seminars, and more.

For more information on the program or to see if you are eligible for it, you may call Beau Edgar or Dawn Green of Git Fit Gym at (573) 885-9050. Online information about SilverSneakers can be found at
