Whether you’re a veteran gym member or a newcomer, Riverside Athletic Club welcomes everyone to come enjoy the benefits of working out in a group setting as well as individually.
“We recognize that our older adult population are more health conscious than ever before, and we want to support them in keeping healthy” says Paul Kienitz, owner of Riverside Athletic Club. “That is why we offer water classes in our warm water pool, pilates, and Silver Sneakers Classes. Our senior programs are designed for men and women in their 50s and older and promotes fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and camaraderie.”
Riverside Athletic Club believes that fitness and wellness are a way of life, no matter what stage of life you are in. “There is never a wrong time to start working out and keeping yourself healthy,” says Becci Simon, manager of the club “Our staff really takes the time to help out our older members and make sure they feel comfortable here. We want them to feel like Riverside is their home away from home.”
Many of the areas senior population may have the Silver Sneakers, Silver&Fit, Optum, or Exercise Rewards benefit on their insurance and are not utilizing it. If they do have this benefit, then their insurance pays for their membership.
“Many individuals have this benefit on their insurance and don’t even realize it” states Janet Thompson, Instructor of the Silver Sneakers Program at Riverside. “With all of the new health insurance changes, we are encouraging everyone to contact their health insurance representative to find out if they have this program on their plan.” “If you don’t have that particular coverage, we offer a variety of memberships to fit your budget.”
