CHANDLER, Ariz., March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SilverSneakers®, the nation's leading community fitness program designed for seniors, is adding digital resources to support its members as the spread of COVID-19 keeps people home and quarantined. On Thursday, March 19 at 8:30 a.m. MST, we will kick off a virtual workout series on Facebook Live. To protect the health, well-being and safety of members and to support them to stay active, SilverSneakers members can access an OnDemand video library offering a variety of workout formats and intensity levels for those members just starting out their fitness journey and those who have already established a regular routine of physical activity. We will continue to add new content to our digital library to provide additional resources and options as the COVID-19 situation develops.
Exercise plays an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing stress, and supporting a strong immune system. SilverSneakers members have a variety of options to choose from to stay fit and active, by staying engaged digitally through our SilverSneakers GOTM app or accessing our SilverSneakers OnDemand video library of workouts, nutrition, stress management, and educational materials.
