Our Favorite Sites for Seniors Fitness

SilverSneakers

Sheila and I took over half a dozen instructor classes through SilverSneakers about nine years ago, and taught senior classes at the League City Senior Center we could drive to from Galveston. We also taught classes at The Y in Burlington Vermont. Both wonderful experiences ๐Ÿ’•

And of course we still take classes the many places theyโ€™re offered. Plus, where they arenโ€™t, youโ€™ll often see the same instructors there leading โ€œseniorsโ€ classes ๐Ÿ˜Š

In addition, SilverSneakers has a wealth of fun exercise routine videos on their site.

Weโ€™ve found these can be very handy for at home or on vacation!

Dr. Mirkin

We really like Dr Mirkinโ€™s weekly newsletter articles, plus theyโ€™re also available on his site. Heโ€™s (now) a senior like ourselves, and very active (he and his wife ride a tandem bike together!)

His advice on things like recovery (which Iโ€™ve linked to in some of my posts) are in-depth, yet broken down to a level I can usually understand ๐Ÿ˜Š

His โ€œaboutโ€ info includes –

practicing physician for more than 50 years and a radio talk show host for 25 years, Dr. Mirkin is a graduate of Harvard University and Baylor University College of Medicine. He is one of a very few doctors board-certified in four specialties: Sports Medicine, Allergy and Immunology, Pediatrics and Pediatric Immunology.

At times heโ€™ll also speak to some of the aging / fitness issues he and his wife have faced.

WebMD

WebMD is fun to explore sometimes, and of course their information is (as far as I know as a layman) top notch.

Whatโ€™s particularly fun for us are the numerous quizโ€™s that test what one thinks they know ๐Ÿ˜Š – from very serious to, well, lighter (even if still important) โ€”

Like from โ€œMyths and Facts About Genital HPVโ€ to โ€œShoe sizeโ€!!!

If thereโ€™s not hundreds of quizzes (their spelling, and Iโ€™m not counting them, lol!) thereโ€™s many โ€œmanyโ€ dozens. Iโ€™ll go with hundreds ๐Ÿ˜Š

About the Above Sites

These are the places Sheila and I most visit or read something from. Some she reads more than me, and vice versa ๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™ll be adding personal observation notations to each one very soon, but first need to practice what we learned – listen to your body & rest as needed ๐Ÿ™

And thereโ€™s many many more we like too, but the above are among the ones weโ€™ve followed & gone back to for over a decade.

Also Favored Sites

Iโ€™ll probably add an โ€œAlso Favored Sitesโ€ section later to supplement the list above.

I hope these are helpful for you and, as always, check with your medical provider for guidance.

Related Amazon Search & Products

Yoga
Senior Fitness

I do like to point out I pick my selections to showcase from my Amazon searches. May not always be the case, or wholly always the case, but for now, I prefer picking titles and book covers and gift items that just really appeal to me. Thereโ€™s lots more to choose from, but only have so much room, lol! I hope you enjoy โ€”

Thanks so much everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • We really enjoy these sites, + several others Iโ€™ll add later as I can update the post, but wanted to get this one there so I can add to it. Iโ€™ll add bits about why we like each particular site etc ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Oh, Cindy, so nice of you to say! ๐Ÿ˜Š But sheโ€™s the one who 2001 got me back into being active, and itโ€™d be another 6 years before I even started losing some of the weight Iโ€™d accumulated – and obviously didnโ€™t want to let go of, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚
