Strong Bones, Strong Life (Studio)

With bone density peaking at 35 years old, we all experience progressive bone loss at a rate of about 1%, per year, as we age. With 43% of adults over the age of 65 either Osteopenic or Osteoporotic, about one third of these individuals will experience an Osteoporotic fracture in their lifetimes. However, this progressive weakening of bone can be either accelerated, or decelerated, through our lifestyle choices, by how we eat and by how we choose to move and exercise.

This 8-Week Exercise Series, taught by Physical Therapist and Board-Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist, Tami DeAngelis of Healthy Aging Physical Therapy, provides an Evidenced-Based, Fitness-Forward approach to Osteoporosis Prevention and Management. Classes will involve aerobic exercise, functional strength training, balance and flexibility and will incorporate ground-level exercise, so being able to safely get on and off the ground independently is a must.
