About this event

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Bone Builders is a free, volunteer-led exercise program for ages 55+ in partnership with the Montgomery County Departments of Recreation and Health and Human Services, and the RSVP volunteer program. One hour classes held twice per week are designed to increase bone density. Participants use ankle and hand weights, and participate in warm-up, cool-down and balance exercises. The class relies upon weight training and balance exercises to protect against fractures caused by osteoporosis by increasing muscular strength, balance and bone density. Bone Builders has a strict attendance policy: participants must consistently attend twice per week to maintain their place in class. Other similar, affordable, easily transitional offerings are available at other locations.


Class will not be held on Monday, February 21.

A face mask is required indoors for all individuals over the age of 2.

A minimum of 6 feet of space should be maintained indoors for those visiting our facilities.

Masks are strongly encouraged outdoors for all people when a minimum of 6 feet of distance from others cannot be maintained.
