Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017, 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Where:

Galena MO

Description:

Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) is an 8-week strength-training program for older adults. SSSH is modeled after the evidenced-based StrongWomen program developed by researchers at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science at Tufts University. While the original Tufts program includes only women, University of Missouri Extension has adapted the curriculum to include men.   Missouri’s Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) program is designed to increase aging adults’ access to a safe, structured and effective strength-training program. At each session a prescribed set of 8 upper and lower body strengthening exercises are done. Participants are made to feel comfortable regardless of their current fitness level so they can safely participate and gradually build the strength beneficial to health.
