Strongwomen – Strong Bones will be offered again in Tomahawk
The Strong Woman Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, Ph.D., an associate professor at the Freidman School of Nutrition Science and Police at Tufts University. Studies at Tufts University have shown that one of the best ways to keep muscles healthy and strong is through exercise called strength training - sometimes known as weight lifting or resistance training.
The Strongwomen-Strong Bones Program includes progressive weight training, flexibility and balance activities. These exercises are safe and effective for women and men of all ages, including those who are not in perfect health. People with health concerns such as arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes, obesity and back pain often benefit the most from an exercise program that includes lifting weights a few times each week. Strong Bones classes meet for 1 hour twice a week for 12 weeks.
The class will also include leader-directed discussion around eating healthy. The curriculum emphasizes an eating pattern that is rich in fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, fish, whole grains and legumes; it encourages leaner meats and poultry and fewer refined carbohydrates and saturated and trans fats.
Classes will be held at United Methodist Church, 1104 School Rd. in Tomahawk on Mondays and Thursdays starting Feb. 18. Openings are available in the 3-5:30 p.m. classes. Contact Amanda Kostman at the Lincoln County UW-Extension Office at 715-539-1080 for registration information.
