Create Your Own Strength Workout at Home and Work

Resistance training is an important component to overall physical health. Research shows that resistance training has many physiological benefits including increased blood glucose regulation, increased bone, muscle and connective tissue growth and durability, and weight reduction which manage and treat many health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, overweight, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease. Resistance training done regularly can also increase our physical ability, while a lack of resistance training can lead to low function, loss of independence, falls, and disability. We’re never too old to start, yet many people struggle to incorporate a resistance training regimen into their activity plan.

In this webinar, you will learn why incorporating strength training is so important for your overall health and how to put together a basic and balanced full-body strength training program at home. This class will include demos of simple, effective exercises you can use as building blocks and real-case scenarios to help you create a customized home strength workout that works for you.

Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move and join in the action. Please bring something with weight that you can use in the demonstration. This could be a pair of free weights or simply a fabric shopping bag with canned food, books, or anything with the appropriate weight for you. This class is suitable for all fitness levels.
<brThis class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants. Attend the live session or listen to the recording within one week to receive incentive points.
