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 view a powerpoint covering the health benefits of strength training. Senior fitness pre-assessments will be conducted on all participants. There will also be a review of the exercises.
Pre-registration by Wednesday Sept. 19 is required. Please call the Hickory County Extension office at 417-745-6767 to register.
