Body & Bones is led by BoneFit trained (by Osteoporosis Canada) and CSEP certified staff.

It consists of a three day per week progressive program that includes resistance exercises and functional training. Days 1 & 2 will consist of full-body strengthening exercises and core conditioning, using bodyweight, light handheld weights, stability balls, and elastic bands. Day 3 will focus more on balance and flexibility work.

In previous programs, Body & Bones conditioning participants saw an increase in grip strength, lower body strength, range of motion of the hips and shoulders, and improved balance. These findings have strong correlations to the maintenance of an independent lifestyle and the prevention of a functional decline. Upon completion of the program, past participants also recorded an increase in quality of life.

Classes are tailored to meet the physical needs of each individual participant.

This program is designed for older adults with osteoporosis or osteoarthritis who want a full-body strengthening program.
