    Description:

    Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) aims to provide inactive middle-aged and older adults with access to a safe, structured and effective exercise program capable of building muscle and increasing bone density, thus decreasing frailty, osteoporosis and the risk of falls. SSSH helps participants meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s physical activity recommendations.

    SSSH challenges participants through incremental increases in exercise volume and intensity. Led by a certified instructor, participants complete a warmup, a prescribed set of upper- and lower-body strengthening exercises and a cool-down at each class. Participants are made to feel comfortable regardless of their current fitness level so they can safely participate and gradually build the strength beneficial to health.

    Session topic:

    Stay Strong, Stay Healthy is an 8-week strength training program geared towards individuals age 60+ who are looking for a challenge in their current fitness routine. Participants meet twice weekly for 8 weeks and complete upper and lower body exercises that improve their muscle strength, balance and flexibility. All program equipment is provided.
