Arthritis Pool and Exercise Classes

Arthritis Movement Program
A community-based, recreational group movement and education program designed specifically for people with arthritis and related diseases. The program’s multiple components help reduce pain and stiffness, and help maintain or improve mobility, muscle strength and functional ability. Each class includes a variety of exercises that can be performed while sitting, standing or lying on the floor; endurance building routines; relationship exercises; and health education topics. Individuals from basic to advanced capabilities will benefit from the program.
Classes are conducted by trained and certified instructors in partnership with the local Arthritis Foundation chapter. Classes take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00-11:00 a.m. in the Education Center. Registration is not required prior to class. There is no cost for the movement class.
This is an ongoing class. You may start at any time.
