By Special to the Monitor

If your New Year’s resolution is to get into shape and be fit, as well gain greater strength and vitality, the opportunity to fulfill this resolution has arrived.

The Los Alamos Cooperative Extension Service and the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization are offering two strength training program options, StrongWomen, and Men Growing Stronger.

Both programs were developed by Tufts University at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston.

The StrongWomen program is a researched based exercise program for women older than 50. Two options will be offered. The final option selected will be based upon registrants’ interest and availability.

The first option will be Mondays and Wednesdays, Feb. 9 to April 29 from 10:30-11:15 a.m. The second option will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, Feb. 10 to April 30 from 2:30 -3:15 p.m.

The StrongWomen sessions will be held at the Los Alamos Fitness Center, 771 Central Ave., Unit 28. Kent Pegg, certified personal trainer and owner of the Los Alamos Fitness Center, will lead the series.

Cost for the program is $60, which includes 24 sessions, a weekly nutrition and wellness newsletter and a StrongWomen T-shirt. All equipment will be provided.
