“I have been attending Silver Sneakers exercise classes and swim for two weeks, and can already feel a positive outcome in my fitness. The programs are far better than I was doing by myself in the gym. So happy that I found this program. The socializing is also a positive for someone that lives alone. Thank you for putting on this program! Please continue!”
