HURLEY — Iron County Public Health will hold Strong Bodies exercise programs for midlife and older people at three locations in Iron and Gogebic counties starting on Tuesday.

Program Assistant Sue Herlevi said Strong Bodies is an evidence-based exercise program for older people. The objective is to improve their health and well-being through a structured, safe and effective strength-training program. During classes, instructors will teach exercises using a combination of dumbbells, adjustable ankle weights and the participants’ own body weight.
