Strong for Life Exercise Program
Strong for Life was developed by Providence physical therapists with adults who are sixty plus in mind. Strong for Life is an easy-to-follow routine designed to improve balance, strength and flexibility. Participants choose one of three levels, and all movements can be done in standing or sitting positions.
Therabands are used in the videos for an individualized workout. If you don't have therabands at home, you can use what you have, like soup cans or old physical therapy bands. Therabands run between $10-15 if you order online. If you do order online, make sure to take a look at the descriptions to get the flat bands and not the loops (harder to use for this program). Also look for latex-free if that is important to you.
