Active Seniors

At WellWorks, we cater to a diverse set of populations. Through our Active Seniors program, we've developed a series of classes and a community of support aimed at maintaining and improving strength, balance and flexibility. The Active Senior classes are open to anyone with a WellWorks membership, regardless of age or membership type. 

SilverSneakers(R)

Our WellWorks Facility Memberships are part of the SilverSneakers(R) program.  The Healthways SilverSneakers Fitness program is an insurance benefit included in more than 65 Medicare health  plans. You can determine if you’re eligible for SilverSneakers by visiting their website or contacting customer service (888-423-4632). If you’re eligible, you’ll be given a 16-digit Healthways/Prime member number. Bring that number into WellWorks and we can set-up a SilverSneakers membership for you. Eligibility begins at age 65.  

Please Note: At this time, our Virtual Memberships do not qualify for the SilverSneakers(R) program. However, all Facility Memberships include free, unlimited access to our virtual content.

Group Fitness 

Our Active Senior classes have been carefully created to help improve balance, strength, agility and flexibility. All classes are taught by Josh Christen, Exercise Physiologist, who offers modifications to meet the needs of a wide variety of participants. WellWorks members enjoy the benefit of unlimited group fitness classes. All of our Active Senior classes are available to ALL members. You do not need to be a SilverSneakers(R) participant to attend these classes. Since they are in-person classes, though, an active Facility Membership is required to attend the live Active Senior Classes.
