Are you interested in becoming “fit and strong” in the new year? If so, we will be hosting Fit & Strong!, an award-winning, evidence-based physical activity program for persons aged 55 and older with osteoarthritis and / or lower limb joint stiffness.
The Fit & Strong! program combines flexibility, strength training and light aerobic exercise with health education to achieve sustained behavior change among older adults who have lower extremity osteoarthritis and / or lower limb joint stiffness. Classes are led by a team of RSVP volunteers, trained by the University of Illinois at Chicago.
Fit & Strong! is the only one of its kind in New Jersey. Participants can expect the following benefits:
- reduced lower extremity joint stiffness
- decreased lower extremity joint pain
- increased adherence to physical activity
- improved self-efficacy for exercise, and
- improved aerobic capacity
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:30 AM – 1 PM: January 6 – March 4, 2020
