Show your heart some love by learning new ways to exercise with Crosby Wellness Center group fitness instructor KK Swanson!

Show your heart some love by learning new ways to exercise! Regular strength training is a key component to improving your overall health and wellbeing. And, it doesn’t just benefit your muscles, it benefits your heart, too! Some other benefits include increased bone density, less risk of injury and it’s a proven mood and mental health boost! In this interactive, activity-filled workshop, Crosby Wellness Center group fitness instructor KK Swanson will demonstrate how to use the major muscle groups of the body to create a safe and effective strength training program.

In this program, you will learn the muscle groups of the upper body and lower body, and strength exercises that target the major muscle groups. Plus, by the time you leave, you will feel comfortable creating a workout program for yourself that will benefit your health for years to come.

Program Notes: Please come dressed in comfortable fitness attire and closed toe shoes. We also recommend bringing a water bottle that can be refilled in our refillable water station.

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