Bone Builders Classes

Bone Builders classes resume this fall. These exercise classes are designed to help reduce the incidence of osteoporosis in men and women age 50 and older. Trained RSVP volunteers lead weekly classes, utilizing progressive weight-bearing exercises developed at Tufts University. These FREE classes will be offered at sites across Schuyler and Yates Counties.

Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million Americans, or 55 percent of people age 50 and older. While women are four times more likely than men to develop the disease, men can also suffer from osteoporosis. Those affected by osteoporosis cannot feel their bones getting weaker. They may not know they have it until they break a bone, often the result of a minor fall.

Bone Builder classes are recommended for men and women 55 and older to help reduce the chance of getting osteoporosis. Participants must have a signed release from their doctor to join. Call Schuyler-Yates RSVP at (607) 535-7105 for enrollment information. Space is limited.
