About The Strong People Strong Bones Program
The Strong People Strong Bones Program was developed by Miriam Nelson, Ph.D., associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The program is based upon years of research on how strength training and nutrition improve the health of men and 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,” said Dr. Nelson. This program is designed to increase strength, balance, and flexibility, and is appropriate for both sedentary and very active people. Classes are led by Lisa Marie Lee, an instructor who was certified to teach the program by Dr. Nelson, its founder.
