Prairie Ridge Health is offering the Strong Women Program, a 12 week exercise program for middle-aged and older women twice a week at Prairie Ridge Health.

  • Sessions are ongoing, please contact our education department to learn more about enrolling in the next class.

The Strong Women Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, PhD, an associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The Strong Women Program is based upon years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of women of all ages. “Strength is a critical factor in living healthier, more active lives. Our research shows that a program of strength training not only improves bone density but reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms, and increases flexibility and strength,” states Dr. Nelson. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and very active women.

Class is limited to 10 students, with a minimum of 8, and the cost is $70 for 12 weeks with classes 2x per week.  To register contact Chris DeLapp, Education Coordinator at 920-623-1276 or via email
