Penn State Extension is offering a group-based strength-training program for adults ages 40 and older who have been exercising or previously lifting weights. The exercises are simple, safe, and highly effective. This is not an aerobic exercise class setting. The exercises are done in a slow, controlled manner with light weights
“LIFT,” which stands for Lifelong Improvements through Fitness Together, will take place at 8:30 or 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 at the Adams County Agricultural and Natural Resources Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg. Sessions are held twice a week for one hour over the course of eight weeks and include an active warm-up, core strength-training exercises and a cool-down period. The program also encourages participants to increase their daily consumption of fruits and vegetables and overall nutrition.
