Silverfit

A fantastic series of online workouts, brought to you by our instructors, that can be followed in the comfort of your own home with little or no equipment required!

Launch of Silverfit @Home - senior workout videos

Silverfit @Home launched in March 2020, due to the then suspension of our Silverfit exercise sessions due to COVID-19.

All content remains on our channel for Silverfitters to do in their own time.

We are providing these videos on our YouTube channel free of charge so there are no restrictions on who can enjoy them. However, should you wish to donate towards the production and staff/instructors costs involved, we have created a Just Giving page to give you the opportunity to do so.

Two years of @Home!

28th March 2022 marked two whole years of our Silverfit @Home YouTube channel!

Over 170 instructed videos –  we’ve been able to provide our members and the wider general public with free home workouts to keep your activity levels up. It has been received so positively – reading your feedback on the difference it has made to your lives is always so uplifting and makes it all worthwhile indeed!

Our workout videos include:
Pilates, Yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Cheerleading, Zumba, Tango, Bollywood Dance, Nordic Walking at home, Walking Football and Fitness – by a variety of different instructors.

We want to say a big thank you to all of the instructors who have taken the time to record videos for us, keeping our channel consistent and full of variety for our members!
