Charlene Gless & Lynn Marie Villemaire, CVAA certified trainers

About Program

This strength training course has been designed for those over the age of 50 to reduce the effects of osteoporosis, but participants of all ages are welcome. After age 40, we begin to lose a half pound of muscle mass each year. By age 65, an inactive person has lost as much as one third of their muscle mass leading to frailty and increased risk of osteoporosis. Strength training can rebuild lost muscle and strength, while increasing bone density. Through a series of simple chair based or standing weight bearing exercises, you will build bone and muscle strength. This is not an aerobics fitness program. Participant must have had a physical exam in the past year and will need their physician’s approval to participate.

Presentor

Whitney Greennon, Lifestyle Medicine Coach and Athletic Trainer

About Program

Stronger U is a strength-building exercise program to help aging women battle the losses in strength and bone mass, which occur naturally as one ages. Decreasing muscle mass and decreasing bone density is common among older adults, and can be prevented if the appropriate measures are taken. Muscles mass and strength can increase, along with bone density. If muscles and bones are underworked and not experiencing stimulus they will become undertrained, weakened and unable to perform tasks with an increased load. Other positive effects include postural support and increased metabolism. Physician authorization required.
