Fall and Winter 2014
Times depend on location
"Strong Women, Strong Bones" is a nationally recognized fitness program that provides 7 weeks (2 classes/week) of exercise for middle-aged and older women.

The Strong Women Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, Ph.D, associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The Program is based upon years of research on how strength training and nutrition improve the health of women of all ages.

"Strength is a critical factor in living healthier, more active lives. Our research shows that a program of strength training not only improves bone density but reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms and increases flexibility and strength," states Dr. Nelson. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.

This program is designed to increase strength, balance and flexibility. Led by Lisa Marie Lee, an instructor who was certified to teach the program by Dr. Nelson, its founder.
