The Joint Movement

The Joint Movement Program is a light-moderate strength training exercise program made especially for people with arthritis-related symptoms. The Program is suitable for beginners, and is open to people aged 65 years and over, of all abilities and fitness levels.

The Joint Movement is run in group classes, and includes one class each week over 12 weeks. The 12-week Program is available as either a land based program (e.g. in health centres or gyms) or a warm water based program. The availability of each program type varies by location. 

The Joint Movement is run by trained fitness professionals, so you can be sure that you are exercising safely, correctly and for the most benefit!

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.
