SAN DIEGO, November 2, 2023 – Medicare beneficiaries looking to enhance their well-being now have access to even more tools and resources to support their health and fitness goals, thanks to the Silver&Fit ® Healthy Aging and Exercise program, a popular fitness benefit provided by American Specialty Health (ASH) through many Medicare Advantage plans.
“As we look to the future, we're excited to expand our offerings, providing access to thousands of fitness centers, on-demand exercise videos, and personalized coaching," said George DeVries, chairman, CEO, president, and co-founder of ASH. "For over 15 years, we have focused on improving the well-being of Medicare beneficiaries, with over 4.8 million members nationwide. And we take great pride in our 98 percent participant satisfaction rating. We hope to continue improving that score through our ongoing commitment to empower individuals to live healthier.”
Silver&Fit provides members with access to 15,000+ standard and 5,000+ premium fitness centers. The offerings include national name brand chains, YMCAs, and boutique fitness studios. For those seeking at-home fitness options, there are more than 8,800+ on-demand exercise videos, including cycling, dance, Pilates, cardio, strength, yoga, HIIT, and meditation. Members can also work toward their fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle goals during scheduled phone, video, or chat sessions with a well-being coach, in addition to having access to customized workout plans based on the member’s fitness level and goals.
In 2023, the Silver&Fit program expanded on these robust healthy aging tools by launching its Well-Being Club, providing members with exclusive opportunities to learn new skills, join live virtual classes and events, connect with others focused on their well-being, and access special articles and videos.
“With 2024 on the horizon, we will be expanding offerings to further support members on their well-being journey,” DeVries said. “Starting in 2024, Silver&Fit program members will also get access to FitnessCoach ® , a virtual personal fitness training program, where members can challenge themselves with up to 8 live virtual sessions per benefit year, led by certified personal fitness trainers.”
