The Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program, also known as AFEP, is low-impact physical activity program proven to reduce pain and decrease stiffness. Classes include gentle range-of-motion exercises that are suitable for every fitness level and ability along with a joint warm-up, balance and endurance exercises, and a relaxation period at the end of class.  This enjoyable and motivational exercise program helps to keep joints flexible, muscles strong, increases energy, and improves overall well-being.  Classes are taught by a trained program leader. 

Who is Eligible? With the consent of his/her physician, any adult with any type of arthritis may participate. Participants must be able to independently work with assistive devices (if used) or, if in a wheelchair, adults must be able to transfer to a straight-backed chair. Exercises can supplement, but should not replace, any exercises prescribed by a doctor or therapist.
