Strong Bones: An Osteoporosis Prevention Program
Sessions start monthly!
Class meets Mondays and Wednesdays at 4:30pm-5:30pm or 6:30pm-7:30pm.
Our Strong Bones Program is an interdisciplinary fitness and wellness program focusing on strength and nutrition. Strong Bones Osteoporosis Prevention is a 12-week Group Exercise and Nutrition program.
This is a functional strength small group training class led by a certified personal trainer that meets 2 times per week. Many different tools are used such as free weights, kettlebells, TRX, tubing, and bars.
Throughout this program you will also meet with a Registered Dietitian bi-weekly (6 times throughout the program) to discuss dietary changes necessary based on your specific needs and limitations.

- Manage chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, obesity, heart disease, depression and diabetes.
- Sharpen your thinking and learning skills.
Why Meet with a Dietitian?
Did you know that getting in adequate calcium, vitamin D, protein, and other nutrients from your diet are vital to bone health? Learning about the foods that are rich in these nutrients are important for your bone health and overall health and will help you make healthier food choices every day. Strong Bones meets with our Registered Dietitian 6 times during the program to establish what vital nutrients you may be lacking and determining how to correct that through lifestyle modification!
