Senior Services Plus (SSP) will offer a FREE Arthritis Foundation Exercise ProgramSM on Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 12:30 pm – 1:30pm. This is a free demonstration class open to SSP members and the community. We want to highlight the benefits of this type of class so we are offering the first class at no charge both to our members and the community said Debbie Cerkoski, Wellness Director for SSP.

The Arthritis Foundation Exercise ProgramSM was developed by physical therapists specifically for individuals suffering from arthritis. This low-impact and joint-safe exercise program has been documented to help decrease arthritis pain and relieve stiffness while increasing flexibility and range of motion. In addition to reducing pain and stiffness, the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program helps individuals with joint flexibility, maintain muscle strength, and build overall stamina.  The program is taught by SSP Arthritis Foundation-certified instructors, each of whom has completed in-depth training on arthritis. A regular scheduled class will be held on Thursdays each week from 11:30am – 12:30pm.
