StrongWomen Exercise Program now in Savage
Starting March 25th, the StrongWomen StrongBones program will be held twice weekly at the Savage Senior Center. Participants will meet Tuesday and Friday morning from 10AM-11AM to exercise and socialize.
StrongWomen is a research-based strength training program for elderly women that has shown to increase muscle mass, improve balance and confidence, and increase bone mass. This free 10-week program was held in Sidney last fall. Participants learned how to correctly use dumbbells and ankle weights, and performed a variety of exercises for their arms, back and legs. Participants also reported increased strength, flexibility and coordination at the end of the 10-week program. While most women started with two pound dumbbells, most were able to lift 4 or 5 pound weights at the end of the program.
