Start the new year out right

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

Those with a New Year’s resolution to get into shape and be fit have an opportunity to do so. A strength-training program aimed at women and men older than age 50 is starting up.
The Los Alamos Cooperative Extension Service and the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization are offering the Strong Women and Men program developed by Tufts University at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston, Mass.
The program is a research-based strength training program for women and men 50 years of age and older.  
Previously called the StrongWomen and Men Growing Stronger programs, this new offering allows both women and men to strength train in the same class.  Scientific research has demonstrated that exercise with weights (strength training) will increase strength, muscle mass and bone density in middle-aged women and men.
Additionally, strength training improves self-confidence, sleep, vitality and reduces risk for diabetes, heart disease, depression and obesity.  Components of the program include:
• 24 classes — 12 weeks, 2 times a week, 45 minutes per class taught by fitness professionals
• 12 weekly nutrition, health and wellness related newsletters
• Availability of book and DVD lending library
• StrongWomen or Men Growing Stronger t-shirt
