Strong Women

Instructors: Tufts University Trained Program Leaders -- Sue Rode, Jane Schlacht, Yolanda Gentile; sponsored by Sharon Johnson

A Tufts University program developed by Dr. Marion Nelson is offering daily strength training classes. Women (and men) participate in 45-minutes to 1 hour of prescribed strength training routines using free weights and leg weights, which are provided as part of the cost of the class. Participants in these classes have realized improvements in endurance, balance, flexibility and overall strength.

DATES:              On-going classes -- Daily M-F
TIME/ COST:     MWF 12:15 pm $35/8 weeks, TTH 8:30 am $30/8 weeks
LOCATION:        OSU Extension Auditorium, 569 Hanley Road, Central Point

Note: Participants who continue to take the 8-week series pay $15 (MWF) and $10 (TTH) for 8-weeks of training after their first 8 weeks. Additional leaders have been trained and other Strong Women programs can be held throughout the valley if facilities are available. If you want a class near you, we have leaders if you have locations.
