All of the classes are conducted by certified instructors and, so far, more than 70 types of classes are included in SilverSneakers FLEX. They range from tai chi to boot camp and Latin dance to yoga. Class locations and types are always expanding and we love getting your ideas for new ones. The possibilities are nearly endless. Getting fit and having fun in your neighborhood: What's not to like?
