Description

Strength Training for Adults: A Beginner’s Start to Fitness, Health & Weight Loss

Back by popular demand, this one-time fitness class will help you get started with a simple strength training program you can do at home.

This program will outline the American College of Sports Medicine recommendations for strength training for health. The health benefits associated with strength training and its effects on muscle building and metabolism will also be discussed.

Kim Larson, Certified Health and Fitness Coach, will share 3 easy steps to start a beginning strength training program. She will demonstrate 5 basic strength training moves that do not require equipment that participants can do at home. Participants will practice these moves in class to ensure correct body position and promote comfort in doing these activities at home. Verdant will provide bands, and Kim will demonstrate the exercises using them. Participants will go home with resources and online tools to show strength training exercises and visuals of the exact exercises done in class.

What to Expect:

This is an exercise demonstration class. Participants in the program will learn from a Certified Health and Fitness Coach and can expect to:

  • Fill out paperwork prior to class (Form A and Form B) that may require a note from your doctor to participate
  • Be seated for a presentation about the health benefits of strength training
  • Watch the instructor demonstrate strength training moves that can be done at home
  • Stand or sit and practice strength training moves to ensure correct body position and promote comfort in doing these at home
  • Receive an exercise band to practice movements and take home
