CREAMERY PA – A 10-week strength training program, intended specifically for mid-life and older women, will be offered Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:45-6:45 p.m. beginning Sept. 10 (2009; Thursday) and ending Nov. 19 at the Montgomery County (PA) 4-H Center on Route 113, one mile west of Skippack PA.

An informational session will launch the program Sept. 10, which is being sponsored by Penn State Cooperative Extension of Montgomery County. Cost for the entire series is $60, and includes use of weights and all sessions.

The StrongWomen Program, as it’s called, was developed by Dr. Miriam Nelson, an associate professor of nutrition science at Tufts University. The program is based upon years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of women of all ages. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.

Registration is required. Class size is limited. For more information, call 610-489-4315.
