Benefits of Strength Training

Many people think that losing muscle mass or breaking a hip are a natural part of aging. Not true!  As they say, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Research from back in 2004 shows that strength training helps sustain bone structure and can even reverse bone loss in older adults.  Strength training means using weights to build up your muscles.  This is easy to do with hand weights, ankle weights, or even milk jugs full of water! 


Joining a strength-training exercise class is a great way to make sure you DO the exercises you know you should.  Joining a class can help you be accountable and more likely to meet your goals. Lucky for you, Strong Bodies strength training classes are available for free in Kewaunee County.


Strong Bodies is a FREE exercise class that can help you maintain your muscles and avoid injury. Kewaunee County Extension will offer Strong Bodies classes with our local partners. Our next program will be 12 weeks long with two one-hour classes each week.  Right now, we are collecting names of interested Kewaunee residents.  If you would like to join a Strong Bodies class, please sign up at OR call Kewaunee County program assistant Erin Dahle at 920-388-7141.
