Strength Training for Women

If you’ve never lifted weights in your life – and many people haven’t - why should you start now? The answer is simple: Muscle tissue, bone density and strength all decrease over the years. These changes open the door to injuries and accidents that can compromise your ability to lead an independent and active life. Strength training can play a huge role in slowing bone loss and is one of the most effective ways reverse much of this decline. 

Come join us for an hour of targeted exercise where we will focus on making our bodies stronger as well as emphasizing the importance of maintaining and improving our balance. Studies attest that strength training can help you manage and sometimes prevent conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis. It can also protect vitality and make everyday tasks more manageable.  

Wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat or beach towel, water and your weights. Please start with your lightest weights (2-3 lbs.) 

Start the New Year off by giving yourself the gift of good health! 

One Time Class Fee of $20.00, payable to instructor at the beginning of your first class 

Class limited to 20 participants
