StrongBodies™

StrongBodies programs are back, sign up today for sessions starting in September.
Classes in Merrill or Tomahawk!


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 packets are available below.  Please contact Debbie Moellendorf at 715-539-1077 or via email at deborah.moellendorf@wisc.edu if you have questions or need assistance in registering for upcoming programs.
