If you are interested in beginning a strength training regimen, this class may be for you. We are very fortunate here at St. James to host StrongBodies in conjunction with UW Extension. Bone and muscle loss begin early and StrongBodies strength training can reverse this process. The benefits of strength training are a reduced risk for chronic diseases: diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, osteoporosis, arthritis, and heart disease. By participating in strength training you will notice increased bone density, muscle mass, strength, as well as an increased ability to do activities of daily living. StrongBodies was developed for middle-age and older adults, but these exercises can be a benefit to people of all ages looking to improve their physical well-being. Class meets Mondays and Thursdays, 9:15 am to 10:30 am, starting September 16, 2019 and ending November 21, 2019. Classes cost $25 and you meet in the St. James Cafeteria.
