Silver Sneakers With Mary Wannall and Real Life Fitness

I was so pleased to sit down with Mary Wannall, the Head Personal Trainer and Crosstraining Director of Real Life Fitness in Cartersville, Georgia. Mary has always been an advocate for health and fitness and while attending the University of Georgia she began working with group fitness and training. After graduating with a degree in Health and Physical Education she began working in the fitness industry teaching classes. It didn’t take long after moving into management that she decided to create Real Life Fitness Gym.

What is Silver Sneakers and Silver and Fit?

Silver Sneakers and Silver and Fit are programs designed for seniors to help keep them physically active and mobile. The classes are covered by most supplemental insurance policies and can be covered if you are Medicare eligable.

Some of the benefits in participating in a Senior Fitness Program can be:

  • Reduced stress
  • Better sleep
  • Reduces the needs for some medications
  • Gaining back mobility
  • Less risk of falling or serious injury during a fall
  • Building a strong social network with other participants
  • Helps with Osteoporosis
  • Sense of personal accomplishmen

When starting a new physical fitness routine always remember:

  • Always consult your doctor.
  • Start small with 5 or 10 minutes and move your way up.
  • Always workout in a safe enviroment and possibly with a group
  • Consider hiring a personal trainer to help get a safe routine established, even if it’s just for a few sessions. Having a professional walk you through the correct way to workout lowers your risk of injury and helps you reach your goals.
