Strength training program for older adults

Missouri Extension Phelps County
The Rolla Daily News

Classes are held virtually by Zoom in the comfort and safety of your own home. The exercises are easy to learn, safe and effective. No need to wear special clothes—just comfortable, loose-fitting pants and shirt, along with sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes. Over the course of the program, you will increase your strength and improve your balance. After the eight weeks are over, you can continue the strength training program in the comfort of your home or with a group.

Weights will be available for checking out, and two trained instructors will help you learn and do these exercises safely.
