The Bone Builders Osteoporosis Prevention and Reversal Program is an effective combination of weight bearing, balance and stretching exercises. Originally developed from the Strong Living Program of Tufts University, Bone Builders is a free, ongoing program open to all those (men as well as women) with concerns about osteoporosis. When followed diligently, the Bone Builders program and exercises can help the body to increase bone density and reverse the effects of osteoporosis.
Classes meet twice weekly, and include standing and sitting exercises, using hand weights and ankle weights for resistance training. The class is led by volunteers who have had training in the Bone Builders program.
You will be asked to get your doctor's OK before you use weights in the class. Participants are asked to wear loose fitting slacks and shirts, and appropriate shoes (tennis shoes are good), and to bring a bottle of water.
The class is offered free of charge but small donations are welcome and are split between the Hub and the RSPV Friends Program in Concord which supervises the Hub's program.
