LIFT Plus (Lifelong Improvements through Fitness Together) is an in-person and group-based strength-training program for adults ages 40+ who have been exercising or previously lifting weights. Participation in LIFT has been shown to increase strength, flexibility and endurance. Participants will also improve nutrition, health and fitness in an enjoyable, friendly environment.

LIFT sessions are held twice a week for one hour over the course of eight weeks and include an active warm-up, eight core strength-training exercises, and a cool down. The program also encourages increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables consumed in your daily diet.
