 All the exercises are appropriate and totally beneficial. I have made improvements in balance and core strength. Mentally and socially the program is a gift to me. The program is the complete package! –Participant from Pines Community Wellness Class

 I was unable to get off the couch without my husband helping me, then I joined a StrongWomen class. Now I am able to get off the couch with no help AND I can pick up my grandchildren because I have much more strength and balance.

I have 2 artificial legs and 1 artificial hip. I can’t do all the exercises, but the class shows me how to keep moving and stay strong!
