SilverSneakers is a fun, energizing program that helps older adults take greater control of their health by encouraging physical activity and offering social events. SilverSneakers members at the Tallmadge Recreation Center receive the same benefits at Gold level members, including classes developed specifically for seniors. SilverSneakers members can also take part in educational seminars and special events. Being physically active can reduce the likelihood of developing heart disease, diabetes, depression and other health problems that seniors commonly face.
