The "Stay Strong, Stay Healthy" program was developed by Tufts University and is designed to help middle-aged and older adults improve strength, flexibility, and balance. According to research conducted by Tufts, strength training improves bone density, can help reduce falls, improves arthritis symptoms, and increases flexibility in middle-aged and older adults and can lead to a healthier, more active lifestyle.
Participants will do warm-up exercises for about 5 minutes. They will do 8 simple strengthening exercises that can be done with or without weights. Cool down stretches will be done at the end of the session.
