Worldwide, it is estimated that 1 in 3 women over age 50 and 1 in 5 men will experience falls and resulting bone fractures due to osteoporosis. Some disease treatments may increase the risk, at much younger ages.
Join veteran personal fitness trainer Linda Gottlieb in a discussion of safe exercises including muscle strengthening, balance and fall prevention, to decrease your risk, or minimize the impact of osteopenia/osteoporosis.
Participants are asked to have light hand weights (1, 2 or 3 pounds) or resistance bands on hand if they wish to participate in a few exercises.
** Consult your doctor before starting any exercise program for osteoporosis**
