Stay Strong, Stay Healthy is a strength training program for older adults.    Strength training has many benefits:

  • strengthens bones
  • arthritis relief
  • weight control
  • lifts depression
  • stress reduction
  • reduced risk of heart disease

Stay Strong, Stay Healthy is for older adults who want to improve quality of life and stay active.  The exercises are easy to lear, safe, and effective.

Sessions include warm-up exercises, strengthening exercises, and cool-down stretches.  Over 8 weeks, strength and balance improve.  Our trained agents will help you learn and do these exercises safely.
