Mary Ryder, from SNAP-ED, will be returning to teach an adult strengthening and exercise class using Resistance Bands. Resistance bands are excellent at helping to improve balance and coordination as well as building strength and muscle mass. Regular use of resistance bands in an exercise program has been found to reduce the risk of fractures in seniors.  Additionally the strength training aspect can help to prevent common age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Osteoporosis is a condition that occurs when bones lose their mass and strength. This class will be primarily for senior adults. After the class the library can discuss with the attendees as to whether they would like to schedule an ongoing  resistance band class. The library is willing to purchase the bands for a limit of 6 participants if needed. You may also bring your own bands. We welcome any adult to come see what it’s all about even if they choose to not continue with classes in the future. Registration requested by calling the library at 716-287-2945
