Get fit, get strong in Humboldt


January 11, 2019 - 4:07 PM

Our bodies are made for activity, but modern conveniences allow us to be increasingly inactive. Building strength promotes quality of life and independence, especially for adults over 50.  Here’s the good news: the “Stay Strong, Stay Healthy” strength training program is being offered in your community.

This eight-week program can help you get started on the road to better health. “Stay Strong, Stay Healthy” is built on simple, strength-building exercises that will improve balance and flexibility, too. No one is too inactive to participate. You’ll start at a level that’s right for you. Instruction is provided by Joy Miller and Kathy McEwan, Family and Consumer Science Extension Agents with K-State Research and Extension Southwind District.

The class meets for one hour, two times each week at Humboldt United Methodist Church on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30 a.m. The fee is $20 for the eight-week series. Registration and the first exercise session will be held Tuesday. Call Joy Miller at 620-223-3720 for more details.
