Join us in person for Strength Training for Strong Bones on Monday, January 31 at 1 PM in Community Conference Room A.

Are you looking to maintain your weight, burn calories and increase your bone density? Consider giving the treadmill a break and showing barbells some love. Join the Crosby Wellness Center’s new Fitness Manager Darien Nunez to learn how you can get and stay strong at any stage in life with strength training.

Working smarter — not harder — is the key to achieving overall strength and wellbeing. Nunez will demonstrate how to reach your full potential while keeping your bones healthy and strong using appropriate techniques to avoid any injury.

This program is a best fit for those in the early stages of introducing strength training to their fitness routine.

By participating in this session, you can expect to learn:

  • the basics and benefits of strength training.
  • how to properly strength train to avoid injury.
  • how strength training impacts overall bone health.

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