Stay Strong, Stay Healthy is an evidence based eight-week exercise program for older adults that meets the recommendation for healthy muscle strength. The program’s goal is to improve health and quality of life. The hour long sessions meet twice each week. They include warm-up exercises, strengthening exercises with or without weights, and cool-down stretches. Participants are also encouraged to do the exercises on their own once more during the week. Over the eight weeks, participants learn the exercises and begin to improve strength and balance. After eight weeks, participants are encouraged to continue this program at home or with a community group.
