Join us to build the strength you need to enjoy good health as you age. Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) is an eight-week exercise program that incorporates the latest research to help you develop the fitness, flexibility and balance you need to live independently longer.

In hourlong courses held twice a week, trained instructors will lead you through a warmup, easy-to-learn strength exercises and a cool-down. SSSH exercises are safe and effective, and we’ll provide weights for your use on-site. No need to wear special clothes—just comfortable, loose-fitting pants and shirt, along with sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes. You’ll find courses in familiar, nearby venues, such as senior centers or church halls.

After you’ve completed the course, we’ll provide you with a guide you can use to continue strength training in the comfort of your home.
