Strong women

Happy multiethnic women standing in a line and showing thumbs up on white background

Join the Valencia County Cooperative Extension and the StrongWomen of Valencia County get in shape.

The benefits of strength training for women have been studied extensively and include: increased muscle mass and strength, improved bone density and reduced risk for osteoporosis and related fractures, reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, depression and obesity, and improved self-confidence, sleep and vitality.

The Valencia County CES will be offering the StrongWomen Program, a 12-week exercise program for women, from 10:30-11:30 a.m., Mondays and Wednesdays, starting Monday, Sept. 9, at the Eagle Park Community Center.

A physician’s authorization and $10 registration fee is required. The series will be led by Anne-Marie Wilson from the Cooperative Extension Service. For information, call Anne-Marie Wilson at 565-3002.
