Bladen County, N.C. –  This summer, N.C. Cooperative Extension in Bladen County will be offering another session of our Lifelong Improvements through Fitness Together (LIFT) program. This program is a free virtual event hosted in Southeast North Carolina open to Bladen County residents. Are you looking to improve your overall health and learn about movements to help build strength, balance, and flexibility? Join us for LIFT. To register, visit go.ncsu.edu/southeast-lift.

LIFT is a group-based strength training program that lasts 8 weeks. The program is for any age adult and any fitness level. Participants meet twice each week for 1-hour sessions. The classes help participants improve strength and mobility, learn healthy food options, create a habit of physical activity, and most importantly help form a community.

Southeast LIFT will meet twice a week for eight weeks. Our classes will be held via Zoom on Tuesdays and
Thursdays from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. These sessions will not be recorded, but there will be a video available to do independently in the event you have to miss a session. The first class is Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022. The last session will be Thursday, June 23rd, 2022.

No special equipment is needed for the program. You only need a chair, but can have light dumbbells on hand if desired. For more information, please contact us. We hope you will join us this summer for a virtual LIFT program!
