SilverSneakers Introduces SilverSneakers GO, Innovative Mobile Fitness App Designed Exclusively for Seniors


Source:

SilverSneakers®, the nation's leading community fitness program for older adults, launched SilverSneakers GOTM, a mobile fitness app that fits the goals, preferences, and lifestyles of active adults. With workout programs designed specifically for seniors, SilverSneakers GO unlocks access to a library of guided exercises and activities created by trained SilverSneakers instructors to motivate users and help them achieve fitness goals.

For seniors who may benefit from extra support at home or at their location of choice, the app provides animated GIFs and videos with step-by-step instructions on how to perform recommended exercises.

Unlike other mobile apps dedicated to seniors, SilverSneakers GO offers the option to modify exercise difficulty based on the ability to complete a suggested exercise. SilverSneakers members can also plan/schedule activities, log comments about their workouts, and keep track of progress and mood to help establish and maintain a regular exercise routine.

"Whether you're a long-time SilverSneakers member or stepping into a fitness center for the first time, the new SilverSneakers GO app is the mobile fitness companion you need to meet and exceed your fitness goals," said Arra Yerganian, Chief Brand Officer, Tivity Health. "We're providing a solution to help seniors take the guesswork out of working out with intuitive in-app features – for free. Rate your workout experience, log completed workouts and easily make changes if exercises are too easy or too hard. The app empowers seniors to stay fit and healthy throughout their fitness journey."

Highlighted program features of SilverSneakers GO include:

•Strength, flexibility and walking programs customized for beginners, intermediate and advanced users.
•Schedule workouts and activities, with helpful in-app reminders.
•Easy workout modifications; users can switch recommended exercises from easier to harder depending on preferences and ability.

The app is free for everyone, and current SilverSneakers members can experience unlimited usage to all features. Limited access to certain features is available to non-members and can be downloaded in the Apple or Google Play store.
