Fort Hill Wellness Series Presents “Women and Fitness” on October 24

Wednesday, September 27, 2023

The Fort Hill Wellness Series will address the topic of weight training for women, featuring the expertise of personal trainers Anna Aquino and Heather Grier, on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m. at Fort Hill Activity Center, 20 Fort Hill Drive.

"Weight training has many benefits for women, yet according to national surveys, only 20% of women lift," said Wellness Manager Kim Monti. "Women tend to stay out of the weight room due to myths and misconceptions. Our personal trainers will disprove these myths and share their knowledge of how women can be successful with strength training."

Well-known benefits of weightlifting include increasing metabolism and energy levels, improving body composition and fighting age-related loss of muscle and bone density.
