About RSVP Bone Builders

The RSVP Bone Builders Program relies upon weight training and balance exercises to protect against fractures caused by osteoporosis by increasing muscular strength, balance and bone density. 

Studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association show that elderly women who participated in a weight training program twice weekly for a year, gained an average of 1% bone density. A control group lost 2% to 2.5% over the same time period. Participants reported increased strength, better balance, more energy and feels of well being. 

 

All classes are FREE! Utilizing volunteer trainers leading classes at donated sites RSVP of Rutland and Bennington counties are delivering a proven exercise program to local communities. 

 

Participants can join an on-going class at anytime or join with others to initiate a new class. RSVP will help provide volunteer trainers, locate a donated site, and may supply the required weights at not cost.
