Cancellation of StrongBodies Classes through April 10th

Extension along with the UW-Madison community have been keeping a close eye on developments around the novel coronavirus COVID-19. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, program participants and communities is our top priority. We know that some populations, like older adults and individuals with serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease are at increased risk of getting sick from this illness. Out of an abundance of caution for protecting the spread of illness, we are requiring that all Extension-affiliated StrongBodies programs be cancelled or postponed between now and April 10th.

The StrongBodies™ is a national evidence-based strength training program developed at Tufts University and is aimed at mid-life and older women and men.   The benefits of strength training have been studied extensively and include: increased muscle mass, strength and improved bone density as well as many more benefits physically and emotionally.   The StrongBodies™ program includes progressive resistance training, balance training, and flexibility exercises.  These exercises are safe and effective for all ages, including those who are not in perfect health.


Currently, we offer programs in both Merrill and Tomahawk.  Registrations for upcoming Merrill and Tomahawk programs are available below.  Please contact Debbie Moellendorf at 715-539-1077 or via email at if you have questions or need assistance in registering for upcoming programs.
