The changes that occur in the body starting in a person’s 50’s present new fitness challenges. Though women exhibit many of these changes earlier than men due to menopause, both men and women need to begin a more targeted approach to fitness in order to maintain functional movement and quality of life. 

This four-part workshop series covers strategies on how to build bone mass and muscle mass, improve flexibility and balance, maintain joint mobility, and support a healthy spine. Armed with the knowledge of how to prevent dysfunction, preserve healthy function, and intervene with fitness and better habits where needed, it is possible build a strong foundation in order to move forward able to enjoy an active life for years to come.

This workshop is not a workout session, though there will be some movement during the presentation.
