Allison Gunter, county engagement specialist with the University of Missouri Extension office in Dallas County, is hosting an eight-week class at the Dallas County Area YMCA.

The class, which started at 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26, is “Stay Strong, Stay Healthy: A Strength-Building Program.” Participants can start on the road to better health with the Stay Strong, Stay Healthy program, an eight-week course of one-hour, twice-weekly classes.

The evidence-based program is built on simple, strength-building exercises that will improve balance, health and state of mind. No, it is not strenuous weight-lifting. Participants will start at a level that is right for them. No one is too inactive to participate. Building strength promotes quality of life and independence, especially for adults older than age 60.

This free wellness opportunity is offered through the MU Extension office and is held at the Dallas County Area YMCA, 932 W. Main St., Buffalo. Registration forms are available at the welcome desk at the YMCA. All non-Y members will be required to bring in a photo ID and complete a guest pass.

The Y is for healthy living, youth development and social responsibility.
