SilverSneakers Pulse Survey


Executive Summary

The SilverSneakers Pulse survey is an ongoing national series of surveys of SilverSneakers members to understand their experiences regarding overall health, physical activity, and social connection and will also mine for patterns in behavior both during and following the COVID-19 pandemic. Since April 2020, Tivity Health has surveyed thousands of seniors in more than a dozen separate surveys.

Key Findings

Between January 25 – 30, 2024, the SilverSneakers Pulse survey asked seniors about their physical, mental health and wellness. Key findings included:

  • In 2024, self-motivation is important as ever to drive engagement and improvement in physical activity. Members join a gym or community center for the same reasons that they are physically active, to improve their overall health, mobility, balance and strength.
  • 47% are active in SilverSneakers digital offerings. Nearly half of these members also attend in-person classes at least some of the time.
  • 35% currently use a wearable, mostly to monitor steps, track fitness activity and monitor heart rate.
  • About one in four members are lonely. Specifically, 40% feel they lack companionship, 35% feel isolated from others and 34% feel left out, at least some of the time.
