Bone Builders (Crls RM)
Date: Event is held weekly every Thursday
Tests have shown that modifying certain lifestyle factors can be very beneficial to bone health, balance and core strength. From lessening hip fractures or falls causing broken bones to the annoying everyday arthritic pain, the well researched exercises published by Tufts University can be a remedy. The Collier County Retired Volunteer Program has trained and certified a few Bay Forest individuals to hold Bone Builder sessions under their supervision. Classes are open to all Bay Forest residents and renters at no cost. The County requires a yearly doctor’s release to participate in the program. Prior to attending class please visit the Bay Forest Office to pick up the participant instructions and complete the necessary paperwork.
In our classes after warming up the muscles, we strengthen our core by lifting and lowering optional light arm and leg weights at a very slow rate, keeping constant tension on the muscles. While trained class leaders monitor proper form, techniques and tempo, the muscles move against the bones causing stronger muscles and new bone growth. . The sessions end with some brief stretching to keep the ligaments elongated and limber. This reduces body tension, improves range of motion and flexibility.
All new, first time participants will need to train in live classes for the opportunity to practice the proper form. Face masks and social distancing are required. For your protection we ask that you provide your own hand and leg weights.
