Both my wife and I have been Silver Sneakers members going on eight years. We disagree with letter writer Laura Bustamante’s assessment of the program. The gyms and community centers that are a part of Silver Sneakers are open to the public and Silver Sneakers pays the fee for its members. My wife and I are members at the Alper JCC in North Miami Beach. Dance and exercise classes specifically designed for senior citizens are offered every day except weekends. This program has given us the incentive to exercise and attend classes helping us both physically and mentally. It has also enabled us to meet many nice people of all ages in a warm, friendly environment.
