Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (Session 10 of 10)

When:  Thursday, July 3, 2014, 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Where:  
First Christian Church
Clever MO

Description:

SSSH is modeled after the evidenced-based StrongWomen program developed by researchers at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science at Tufts University. While the original Tufts program includes only women, University of Missouri Extension has adapted the curriculum to include men.

Missouri’s Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) program is designed to increase aging adults’ access to a safe, structured, and effective strength training program. Over the 10 weeks, participants learn exercises to improve their strength, flexibility and balance. At each session, a prescribed set of 8 upper and lower body strengthening exercises are done along with warm-up and cool-down stretches. 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:

This is the first session of a 10 week series. Each participant will be assessed for strength, flexibility, and balance. The group will be introduced to the program and learn the exercises that will be used throughout the program.
