LIFT 2 New Abilities

— Written By

This time last year we were all worried about having enough toilet paper to stay at home during the pandemic. We are not in the free and clear, but as more become vaccinated, the trends decrease and restrictions are loosening, many of us have started to get out a little more. With warmer temps and longer days, now is a good time to start working on your physical activity to help strengthen our bodies to become stronger for the summer. 

Lifelong  Improvements Through Fitness Together (L.I.F.T.) is a research-based program that helps  develop relationships , improve functional fitness and emotional health. These classes will help improve your strength and mobility, learn healthy food options, and most importantly help form a community to socialize and interact in the virtual world. L.I.F.T. is an 8-week group-based strength training program that meets 2 times a week for 1-hour sessions. This program is open to all adults, young and old. We will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, May 4–June 24, 2021. All classes are from noon-1 p.m.

Alexander, Anson, Bladen, Montgomery, Pitt, and Stanly counties have partnered to offer this virtual fitness program. Agents will instruct the hour-long class and all you have to do is click the link and participate. How easy is that??? Classes will be pre-recorded for those that may have a scheduling conflict and have to miss our live class. Making time for exercise can change your life! If you’re looking for a free, at-home strength training program, LIFT is the program for you. Let’s get active and LIFT to New Abilities, together!
