Stay Strong, Stay Healthy - Level 2 - Online
The evidence- based Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) program is designed to increase independent living older adults’ access to a safe, structured, and effective strength training program. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy - Level 2 is a follow-up to Level 1, though one does not have to complete level 1 to be a part of this class. It is for those who want to challenge themselves a bit more! Over eight weeks, participants learn exercises to improve strength, flexibility and balance. At each session, a prescribed set of eight to 10 upper and lower body strengthening exercises are completed along with warm-up and cool-down stretches. Participants are made to feel comfortable and are encouraged to gradually build the strength beneficial to health.
This program will be 100% virtual. You can utilize your own weights for the program (we suggest ankle and multiple varying sizes of dumbbells). You can also check weights out from your local MU Extension Office.
There will be NO live class on Dec 18th, Dec 25th, Jan 1st and Jan 15th.
