The SilverSneakers Fitness Program was started in the state of Arizona in 1992, on the premise that for health care to be viable in the long run, cost-effective preventive benefits needed to be incorporated into the care continuum. Founder Mary Swanson’s inspiration was drawn from her own father who, after surviving a heart attack at age 51, pledged to improve his quality of life with regular physical activity. His commitment, coupled with her determination to see him succeed, laid the foundation for the exercise program that would become the nation’s leading exercise program for older adults.
