Shaw JCC to host SilverSneakers® Open House for older adults on May 12

Individuals (65+) who are Medicare-eligible are invited to attend a SilverSneakers® Open House, Friday, May 12 starting at noon, at the Shaw JCC located at 750 White Pond Drive in Akron.  

“If your Medicare health plan, Medicare Supplement carrier or group retiree plan includes SilverSneakers® as part of your benefits package, you get a JCC senior adult membership at no additional cost,” says Michael Neumann, Shaw JCC executive director.

SilverSneakers® helps older adults take greater control of their health through a variety of fitness offerings that engages participants in more frequent strength training, aerobic, and flexibility exercise by providing access to the Shaw JCC and programming designed specifically for older adults.

Members have access to Shaw JCC’s fitness center, including cardio and weight equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, group exercise classes including water fitness, racquetball and tennis courts and full gymnasium.

The community is invited to learn more during an Open House, Friday, May 12, noon-1 p.m. Visitors may tour the Shaw JCC facilities and join the SilverSneakers® program.

“There is no better time to join the JCC. The outdoor pool opens Saturday, May 27 which adds a whole other level of value to your membership,” says Neumann.
