Bone Builders is a program based on scientific research to improve bone density with exercises and weights.
Participants commit two hours per week to increasing their bone density and improving their balance as well as taking charge of their health and doing what they can to improve their quality of life. They know that maintaining strength and balance is vital.
There are 13 bone-building groups in nine locations throughout Montgomery County. Bone Builders is a free, volunteer-led class so it requires teamwork and cooperation. All trainers are certified through a training program specifically geared to building bones.
The Wheaton group is led by Marian Fryer. Classes are held at the Wheaton Community Center on Georgia Avenue at Hermitage Avenue, next door to the Wheaton Library, every Tuesday and Thursday from 1-2 p.m. There are four vacancies in the current class.
This program is run out of the Montgomery Department of Health and Human Services, RSVP program, Office of Aging and Disability Services.
