and If you’re over 65 and looking for a way to stay young, the answer may be right around the corner, and it’s free! It's well known that exercise has a long list of benefits for the body. In the population of older adults, these benefits are even greater - and even hold the key to staying young, both mentally and physically.
The Healthways SilverSneakers Fitness program, offered by Suzanne Vining at Halo Studios in New Canaan is a program specifically designed for the population of adults over 65, and if your insurance plan participates, the program is free to you.
“The SilverSneakers program is designed to enable members to take control of their own health,” says Suzanne Vining, who heads up the SilverSneakers program at Halo Studios. “The program I teach at Halo helps members stay young, fit and healthy with lots of options for varying abilities, fitness levels and exercise styles. It is not only a way to stay fit, but also a way to get together with your peers. It’s a fun, friendly way to socialize that is also providing a great benefit.”
