Due to COVID-19, most Bone Builders exercise classes have not restarted and the few that have are not able to accept new participants at this time due to social distancing guidelines. Contact the GMRSVP office in your county for additional information.
The Bone Builders Exercise Program is the only Volunteer Program that we run in-house at Green Mountain RSVP. We train and place certified Instructors at community centers that donate space in each county. Most classes meet 2 times a week for 1 hour.
Bone Builders is modeled after the Growing Stronger Program or Strong Women created at Tufts University Friedman School of Nurtrition Science and Policy. It is an interactive strength-based exercise program that benefits women and men of all ages. It has been proven to help you build strength, maintain bone density, improve balance, coordination, and mobility, reduce your risk of falling, and help you maintain independence in performing activities of daily life.
