SilverSneakers® is an Older Adult and Senior exercise program that is provided free to members of select health care companies. The intent of the SilverSneakers® programs is to provide opportunities for older adults and seniors to attend regular exercise classes to improve health and prevent simple injuries. Denver Parks and Recreation allows cardholders to drop-in on other activities in addition to exercise classes. Our goal is to introduce older participants to a culture of exercise and activity, which can extend to drop-in games, drop-in to our weight rooms and aquatic facilities at participating SilverSneakers® Centers.

Some of the Classes are:

SilverSneakers Classic, Circuit, Cardio, Yoga, and Splash

These group meetings provide individuals with an opportunity to engage in activities of interest or experience. Club settings are a great place for social interaction while developing one's skill with a particular hobby! All of our clubs run year round so you can join anytime!
