Register for the 12-Week Program

This program is designed to increase strength, balance and flexibility. The exercises are selected with osteoporosis in mind and target muscles in the hip, spine and arms – areas particularly vulnerable to fracture. It is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.

The StrongWomen Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, Ph.D, associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The Program is based upon years of research on how strength training and nutrition improve the health of women of all ages. The program is led by an instructor who was certified to teach the program by Dr. Nelson.

"Strength is a critical factor in living healthier, more active lives. Our research shows that a program of strength training not only improves bone density but reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms and increases flexibility and strength," states Dr. Nelson. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.
