Stay Strong, Stay Healthy Level 2 - Online - Sept 25 - Nov 20, 2023
The evidence-based Stay Strong, Stay Healthy 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 8-10 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.
