The Lancaster County Office of Aging is offering a free ongoing strength training program for individuals 60 and older. Geri-Fit is an evidence-based health promotion program for older adults that helps rebuild strength that has been lost through the aging process. This is a progressive resistance exercise program that will allow participants to advance from using lighter to heavier dumbbells. In addition to gaining strength,
participants will also see an improvement in balance and functional capacity.

Participants will perform exercises using dumbbells, weights and resistance bands (which will be provided). Bring water. The Geri-Fit program will be held Wednesday at  the Columbia Senior Center, 510 Walnut St., Columbia. Information or to enroll: contact Derek Bendetti at Lancaster County Office of Aging, 717-299-7979.
