Strength Training for Healthy Aging - Level 2 is for participants who have previously completed a strength training course with the YMCA and who have an understanding of proper body alignment for basic weight lifting exercises. We will build on the skills learned in the functional strength classes. Please wear clothing that you can move in comfortably and closed-toed shoes. Prerequisite: completion of Level 1 (see above). Participants may be shifted to the other time slot, based on experience and readiness for Level 2. Course fee: $30 to be paid to the YMCA on the first day of classes ($20 for YMCA members).
