Arthritis and Fibromyalgia Exercise

Take Control with Exercise

This program contains water and land classes that are designed specifically for people with arthritis and/or fibromyalgia. We use gentle activities to help increase joint flexibility, range of motion and to help increase overall stamina. This program, however, should not replace a therapeutic exercise program individually prescribed by a therapist. The classes are taught by certified instructors.
