The 2019 season of the Enmarket Encourage Health Educational Series will wrap up on Tuesday, Oct. 29, with a presentation by sports science professional Katie Balthrop on the benefits of strength training at any age.

The series, presented in a lunch-and-learn format, offers the community the opportunity to hear local experts discuss health-related topics in a non-commercial atmosphere.

Balthrop, who founded Savannah Sport and Wellness, will discuss the cardiovascular, muscular, neurological and skeletal benefits of lifting weights.

“Weight training improves heart health, bone density, coordination and balance, as well as basic strength and power. It benefits every age group, and anyone can develop a safe and effective lifting routine and progression,” she said.
