“The water’s buoyancy takes pressure off your joints,” says Sandy Duncan, MSA, ACSM-EP, manager for Health and Wellness Services at Fitness Plus. “Participants are able to do much more in the water than they can on land, which helps them exercise in a safe, fun way.”

The classes also are a great way to meet others. “Our participants are a very social group and often get together for lunch after class,” says Duncan.

Fitness Plus offers various Arthritis Aquatics classes each week.
