After enduring a difficult recovery following hip replacement surgery, Jack decided it was time to turn things around. He joined the SilverSneakers® Fitness Program, for adults 65 and older, to increase his flexibility and strength. Within a matter of weeks, Jack noticed great improvements. “SilverSneakers has been terrific for me. It’s improved my balance and coordination tremendously,” he said.

Eight months after joining SilverSneakers, Jack had replacement surgery on his other hip. This time, recovery was speedy and less strenuous on his body. “There’s no question my recovery after my second surgery was much smoother than the first because of SilverSneakers. Today, I feel better than I did four years ago,” he said.

SilverSneakers® is a registered mark of Healthways, Inc. This national program came to YWCA St. Paul in the fall of 2009. Today, more than 150 Health & Fitness Center members ages 65 and older participate.
