Senior Strength Classes


Join in on fun strength-building classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2-3pm at the Sheridan Senior Center, 210 W Crofoot St, Sheridan, MT 59749.

The classes are designed for mid-life and older adults and include progressive resistance training, balance training, and flexibility exercises.

According to the CDC, some of the benefits of physical activity on brain health for adults over 50 occur immediately after a session of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (acute effect), such as reduced feelings of state anxiety (short-term anxiety), improved sleep, and improved aspects of cognitive function. With regular physical activity (habitual effect), improvements are seen in trait anxiety (long-term anxiety), deep sleep, and components of executive function (including the ability to plan and organize; monitor, inhibit, or facilitate behaviors; initiate tasks; and control emotions).
