Importance of Regular Exercise

importance-of-exercising-regularly

Are you exercising enough? It’s easy to let physical activity sit on the backburner, but making fitness a priority can yield positive changes to all aspects of your life! No matter where your fitness levels are now, increasing your activity a little bit can produce results.

Benefits of staying active

Staying active by exercising regularly can help you to avoid injury and hospital visits. The CDC reports that adults over 65 should be doing some form of physical activity for at least 30 minutes five days per week. Even if you aren’t hitting that goal, it’s important to remember that some activity is better than none! Individuals who exercise find that they have a better quality of life.

Benefits of routine exercise include:

  • Physical wellness: Exercising isn’t only for managing weight! Physical activity aids in improving mobility, cardiovascular health, and strengthening muscles.
  • Mental wellness: Regular exercise is great at relieving stress, improving sleep and boosting your mood.
  • Community: Working out with a group or at a fitness center is a great way to meet new people with similar interests!
  • Independence: Those who work out on a regular basis are at a lower risk of falls, stroke, and osteoporosis. Many people also find that they can do more things on their own for longer.

Medicare and Fitness

Original Medicare doesn’t cover gym membership or access to fitness programs. Many Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Supplement plans offer fitness benefits like a SilverSneakers membership. What is it? SilverSneakers is a no-cost fitness program designed for adults over 65.

SilverSneakers programs let you exercise when you want and how you want.

  • At a gym or fitness center: More than 15,000 locations offer fitness classes, as well as access to equipment and a pool at some locations
  • Outdoors: SilverSneakers FLEX offers outdoor workout classes such as yoga and walking
  • At home: SilverSneakers has an app full of exercise classes and videos you can do anywhere!

If you are currently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement plan, look at your plan’s Summary of Benefits to see if SilverSneakers is an included benefit.

If you have questions about SilverSneakers and plans that offer fitness benefits in your area, or you want to discuss your Medicare plan options, we are here to help! Call us today at 1-800-991-4407 / TTY 711 (Mon - Thurs 8am - 11pm EST and Friday 8am - 9pm EST) to have your consultation with a licensed insurance agent.
