What we're about
PLEASE NOTE - MEETUP IS NOT A WAY TO SIGN UP FOR OUR SESSIONS. Please visit our website to sign up for each session. Meet Up is a means for promotion only.
Since Silverfit's founding in 2013 by now 79-year old Eddie Brocklesby, who is the UK’s oldest female Ironman triathlete, we have grown to over 2,000 members at 17 venues across 9 boroughs reaching a large number of people who weren't previously active. Each venue offers a choice of activities from Nordic Walking, to Pilates, Yoga, Walking Football, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Badminton, indoor cycling, gym/ fitness classes, Bollywood dance, which means that everyone should be able to find an activity to enjoy, regardless of ability or experience.
By promoting happier, healthier ageing through affordable physical activity and at the same time combating social isolation we aim to improve older people's quality of life and also to save the NHS and social care providers money. Members tell us their increased fitness means they attend GP’s surgeries less, or are on reduced medication. Our remarkably high retention reflects that the social element is as highly valued, if not more so, than the physical activity. We make sure no-one is excluded because of cost, all of our sessions are currently free and we are looking at bringing back an annual membership of £12 soon.
