Why is strength training good for me? 

Strength training has proven benefits for people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels, including:

  • Relaxation and loosening up of tight joints and muscles (warm water based)
  • Less pain without further medications
  • Better movement and balance, flexibility and co-ordination
  • Improved ability to do daily activities
  • Better stamina and energy levels
  • Better recovery from joint surgery 
  • Improved feelings of wellbeing
  • Aerobic exercises for a total body workout (warm water based). 

No matter what your age, the evidence is loud and clear; simple strength training completed regularly, can and will help.  The Joint Movement Program is fun and beneficial for anyone - with or without arthritis.
