“It is designed for older adults,” Webb said.  “There is some non-strenuous light weight-lifting involved for health benefits such as improved balance and flexibility,  bone strengthening, healthy weight management,  and can also reduce the risk of health disease.”

“Participating in regular strength training exercises can help to build muscle and  increase bone density,” explained Webb.  “Being physically active is one of the best ways to keep you body and mind functioning at its best.”

The classes will meet on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.  in the Fred E. Davis Multipupose Center at State Fair Community College in Sedalia.  The registration deadline is Friday, April 27 .

Cost for the program is $25.
