Fallon Community Health Plan Wants To Put You in Silver Sneakers

The SilverSneakers Fitness Program offers exercises specially developed for those of us who are over 50. It includes full use of the entire gym including pool, treadmills, and any other facilities available and offered to paying gym members.

Fitness classes designed especially for our age group are offered at participating gyms and are taught by certified instructors. Attending these classes is a fun, healthy way to stay in shape, improve overall fitness level, and meet other active adults who share an interest in maintaining their health.

The only health care plan in Massachusetts that currently offers the SilverSneakers Program is Fallon Community Health Plan. If you are a current member of Fallon and meet the minimum age requirement of the participating gym, signing up is easy. Simply call or go to the participating gym to find out when you can come in to register for the SilverSneakers Program.

The first time you go to the gym, bring your current Fallon Community Health Plan card to prove eligibility. You will be asked to fill out a SilverSneakers form and then you’ll meet with someone at the gym who will give you a guided tour of the facilities. Dress comfortably and wear sneakers in case you want to try anything out!
