Fit and Strong!

January 15
11:30 am - 1:00 pm

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

No classes on  January 20 (MLK, Jr. Day) and February 17 (Presidents’ Day observed)
