Silver Sneakers Fitness Program is making strides in the East

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – We’re in the heat of summer and the heat gives us just one more excuse not to exercise on a daily basis.

The American Heart Association recommends thirty minutes of exercise per day, five days per week. No matter your age.

Luckily, there’s a program offered nationwide, and certainly here in the east, that makes working out for the elderly even easier.

According to, the current insurance plans that provide free Silver Sneaker coverage are: AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan, Aetna, Medicare, Coventry Health Care, Humana, and UnitedHealthCare.
