98 Years Young and Still Going
Marian Chindvall is 98 years young, living independently in her home and volunteering every week at her church. What’s her secret? She is active in the community and, for the past 12 years, has participated in the RSVP Bone Builders Exercise Program at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
Bone Builders is a free exercise program that uses light weights to build muscle strength and bone density. Marian attends the 1 hour class a minimum of twice a week to stay in shape. Because she keeps her body active, she remains independent and is able to continue to do those things that are important to her - such as volunteering at her church.
When asked, “What keeps you going to Bone Builders?” Marian replied, “It keeps you on your toes. There’s friendship and fellowship. You’re motivated by the group to exercise.” That’s why you’ll often find this Bone Builders group having coffee and donuts at the Pine River Bakery after class. Many people in the group have been going for 5-10 years, because of the community of friendship they’ve built. Marian is a true inspiration to her fellow Bone Builders participants and the other 23 Bone Builders sites throughout Beltrami, Cass Lake of the Woods and Morrison Counties served by Horizon Health RSVP.
