DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Youfit Health Clubs is Where You Fit In.™ For the month of May, the focus is on fitness at any age and celebrating Older Americans Month. With programs like SilverSneakers® and personal trainers who specialize in fitness over 55, Youfit Health Clubs offers all the tools needed to feel better at any age.
"Age is just a number and at Youfit we are committed to helping members at every age look better, feel better, live better," said J.J. Creegan, Chief Operating Officer, Youfit Health Clubs. "It's never too late to build healthier habits and for adults 50 plus, there's no better way to get heart healthy than to participate in SilverSneakers.®"
SilverSneakers® is accepted at all Youfit Health Clubs locations, providing access to tons of equipment as well as specialized group classes to all who qualify. For active older adults, physical activity can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke to a similar level as active younger people, slowing the decline in body function. Seniors in the best physical condition tend to also have the best mental abilities.
As part of its YouGX group exercise program, Youfit offers SilverSneakers® classes, geared to encourage an active lifestyle through adulthood. The SilverSneakers® classes use hand-held weights, elastic tubing with handles and a ball for resistance training for a fun and social workout.
"Our SilverSneakers class has greatly improved my life. It is a real motivation to get moving every day and find new friends," said Barbara S., SilverSneakers® member.
Active Adults who qualify for the Silver Sneakers® benefit, can work out for free at any Youfit location. All new Youfit members also receive a free personal training assessment with a YouCoach.
