Fit & Strong Exercise Program

What is Fit & Strong? Fit & Strong is an evidence-based exercise/behavior change program designed for older adults or those with lower extremity osteoarthritis. There is, however, no age or diagnosis screening during registration. All are welcome to join the class!

Fit & Strong is a 12-week program that meets twice each week. The class includes 60 minutes of exercise (aerobic, strength, and flexibility exercises) and 30 minutes of group discussion/health education. The exercise component gradually increases in difficulty as the weeks progress. As such, no new participants will be added to a session after the second Fit and Strong class.

Why should I sign up? Benefits of Fit & Strong include arthritis management, exercise safety, decreased joint pain and stiffness, improved daily function, reduce anxiety, reduce depression, and development and maintenance of an active lifestyle.
