Senior Fitness

The following programs provide eligible seniors with a no-cost membership to the fitness center in addition to specialized classes, events and education. The programs are often available to Medicare eligible individuals and enrollees in private health plans. To learn more, please click on the links to visit the partner websites.

SilverSneakers partners with health plans to provide free gym membership for seniors at fitness centers across the country.
Silver&Fit partners with health plans to offer flexible program designed to fit any budget.

A regular senior membership is an annual investment of $570 in fitness and YWCA St. Paul’s mission and programs. For SilverSneakers and Silver&Fit memberships, insurance companies pay YWCA St. Paul a small fraction of the true cost of membership, which causes a significant financial gap in the agency’s revenue.

Because of this gap, many SilverSneakers and Silver & Fit members choose to make one-time or regular donations to show their support. We’re so grateful to these special members! To become a donor, click here.
