“For 30 years, SilverSneakers has proven itself to be the premiere place for fitness and socializing for seniors, and we are constantly evolving to support healthier lifestyles for those 65 and older,” said. Richard Ashworth, president and CEO of Tivity Health. “As we look ahead to the next 30 years, we will continue to find new ways to serve members and achieve our vision of happier, healthier and more connected lives. Our colleagues follow suit with a relentless passion and I appreciate their dedication to the mission, as well as our customers, instructors and partners who support SilverSneakers.”
asset August 31, SilverSneakers invited members, colleagues, customers, partners and friends to celebrate the brand’s longevity and evolution by attempting a Guinness World Record for “most viewers of a dance fitness lesson live stream on Facebook.” To break the record, at least 1,500 viewers were needed to simultaneously participate in the 30-minute class. A testament to the incredible dedication of SilverSneakers members, Tivity Health set the new world record within minutes of the class starting and the final tally for the record was 3,075 concurrent viewers.
Earlier this year, the program asked its members to share their favorite SilverSneakers memories, stories and experiences as “Love letters about SilverSneakers.” Nearly 400 people wrote letters sharing how the program changed their lives. Many of their stories, along with additional information about the history of SilverSneakers and its 30th anniversary, you can find it at SilverSneakers30.com.
