Osteo-Strong | A low impact bone-builder workshop
Repeats every week every Wednesday until Wed Dec 13 2017 except Wed Nov 22 2017. Wednesday
Exercise is important for treating and preventing osteoporosis. Not only does exercise improve your bone health, it also increases muscle strength, coordination, and balance, and leads to better overall health.
This 4-week workshop focuses on learning simple and safe weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises you can do at work and home on a daily basis that will maintain bone density and help slow bone density loss.
Weights are used during class.
If you have health problems—such as heart trouble, high blood pressure, diabetes, or obesity—or if you are age 40 or older, check with your doctor before you begin a regular exercise program.
Held at Ballet Austin, 501 W. 3rd St.
Instructor: Vicki Parsons, Butler Center for Dance & Fitness & Pilates Center Director
