Are you ready to improve your health? Have you decided it is time for you to start exercising regularly? A regular exercise program can help with weight management, reduce diabetes and stroke risk, increase energy levels, and improve overall sense of well-being.

The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, Cooperative Extension Service in Logan County is offering a group fitness program, Extension Get Fit, to help adults increase strength, flexibility, and balance. This 12-week program uses dumbbells and ankle weights to improve fitness in a fun and relaxed one-hour class.

To participate in the program, you must be 18 years or older. Space is limited, so sign up now by contacting the Logan County Extension Office at 675-2787 or 963-2360 by emailing by the Sept. 6 registration deadline.

Classes will start on Sept. 11. Cost for participating in the program is $12, which includes all sessions and a fitness assessment.
