Gain confidence while gaining strength in this class led by Crosby Wellness Center group fitness instructor Julie Rooth.

Resistance training is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health and wellbeing. Study after study shows it is key to maintaining a healthy weight (even better than cardio!), builds vital bone strength, and improves your flexibility and endurance.

Dumbbells can be your best tool for these workouts, but many are intimidated by them. How do you use them? What are some effective but simple-to-follow exercises? Gain confidence while gaining strength in this class led by Crosby Wellness Center group fitness instructor Julie Rooth.

In this class, you will be using dumbbells to learn how to build and tone your muscles. The workout will include upper and lower body work, with some core strengthening exercises mixed in. This class is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Julie will provide modifications to help everyone experience an effective and safe workout.

Program note: come dressed to exercise and bring your own water bottle.

This program is presented by Julie Rooth and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in partnership with the Crosby Wellness Center.
