Stay Strong, Stay Healthy
Strength Training Program for Older Adults
Join us to build the strength you need to enjoy good health as you age. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) is an eight-week exercise program that incorporates the latest research to help you develop the fitness, flexibility and balance that will enable you to live independently longer.
In one hour-long courses that are held twice a week, trained instructors will lead you through a warm-up, easy-to-learn strength exercises and a cool-down. SSSH exercises are safe and effective, and we’ll provide weights for your use on-site. No need to wear special clothes — just comfortable, loose-fitting pants and shirt, along with sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes. You’ll find courses in familiar, nearby venues, such as senior centers or church halls.
After you’ve completed the course, we’ll provide you with a guide you can use to continue strength training in the comfort of your home.
