LRGHealthcare celebrates 10 years of strong women

LACONIA — Ten years ago, LRGHealthcare began offering The Strong Women Strength Training Program at both the Laconia Community Center and the Pines Community Center in Northfield. In early March, the groups hosted a celebration of this ten year anniversary. In Laconia, two members of the group celebrated ten years of participating twice weekly in the exercise program. In Northfield, five members celebrated a decade together of the program and in both locations multiple members celebrated five years of participation.

The program is sponsored by LRGHealthcare and follows the Tufts University Program designed by Dr. Miriam Nelson. "Lifting Women to Better Health" is the programs tag line and summarizes the program. This evidence based program helps women to maintain muscle mass, strength, and function as they age.

When asked about what keeps women excited about the program and keeps them coming, class leaders Carolyn Muller and Melissa Lee, Community Health Educators with LRGHealthcare stated "It's the connection to others that keeps people coming back. Most of the ladies enjoy not only the exercise but the social connection and a feeling of belonging to a group. They all know they could do the exercises at home, but enjoy the opportunity to gather and work together. Many of them feel that they benefit from the program not only physically but mentally."

Due to the programs continued success, LRGHealthcare is taking a waiting list for enrollment in both Laconia and Northfield. For more information on Strong Women or other programs offered by LRGHealthcare's Community Education Department, call 527-7120.
