Join us for fellowship, healthy snacks, and the opportunity to practice the exercises with Allison Goshorn, Purdue Extension Educator and certified program leader. The program begins on Thursday April 18th and meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays (11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.) until June 6th. The program is for both men and women.

A required orientation is scheduled for April 11th at 11:00 a.m. at the Senior Center. For more information or registration call or email Purdue Extension at 219-324-9407 or mwolff@purdue.edu

This program is based on years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition can improve health. The benefits may include increased strength and flexibility, improved balance and reduced falls, improved weight and glucose control and improved sleep and mood! Each week we will do a series of strength training exercises using just 1— 5 pound weights. After the exercises we will enjoy fellowship and a healthy snack. Come for at least 6 weeks (12 meetings) and get a certificate and a FREE set of weights. Limited to one set of weights per person. This program is free and made possible by support from Purdue Extension and Indiana State Department of Health, Office of Women’s Health.
