Beginning in March, we will offer our newest LIFT workshop designed to help older adults improve strength, mobility, and build healthy eating habits. LIFT, which stands for “Lifelong Improvements Through Fitness Together” is a national program sponsored by Virginia Cooperative Extension and consists of sixteen sessions that will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays, March 6 through April 26, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

All sessions will be held at the Lucile Tatum Center, located at 959 Osceola St., Gastonia, NC. Instructor and presenters include Linda J. Minges, Registered Dietitian and the Extension Master Food Program volunteers.

“This workshop makes such a difference in the lives of participants,” said Minges, a program instructor. “Participants find motivation and encouragement through the success of others in the workshop, along with gaining new ideas and ways to meet their own health goals.”

There is no charge for the course, but registration is required. To register or for more information, contact Linda J. Minges, with North Carolina Cooperative Extension, at linda_minges@ncsu.edu or 704-922-2127. The registration deadline is February 20, and group size limited.
