Inactivity increases with age. By age 75, about one in three men and half of all women engage in no physical activity. It is well known that older adults benefit greatly from regular physical activity!
Now seniors have more opportunities to be active with the Strong Seniors program! We currently have 11 strength training exercise classes offered in La Crosse County, and we are still growing. Classes are $18 per session for an 11-week session. Payments are non-refundable. Classes are led by La Crosse County Fitness Instructors and community volunteers. All classes are designed to help participants strengthen muscles, improve balance, and build endurance. Classes are filled on a first come, first serve basis. Be sure to check out our upcoming class schedule for information on how to get registered.
We are looking for additional instructors to lead Strong Seniors classes! If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a leader, please call the Strong Seniors program at 785-9853!
Current SESSION: July 4th- September 16th
Next Session: October 3rd- December 16th
