Program History: The StrongBodies program was developed by Miriam Nelson, PhD, associate professor at the Gerald J. and Dorothy R. Frieman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. The StrongBodies Program is based upon years of research on how strength training and proper nutrition improve the health of people of all ages. "Strength is a critical factor in living healthier, more active lives. Our research shows that a program of strength training not only improves bone density but reduces falls, improves arthritis symptoms and increases flexibility and strength," states Dr. Nelson. The program is appropriate for both sedentary and active people.
Mission: StrongBodies envisions a diverse community of individuals who are fit, strong, and healthy; in turn these empowered individuals become agents of change for their families, communities, and beyond.
