CLASSES

Arthritis Programs at the YMCA of Greater Kansas City

Gentle activities in warm water can help you gain strength and flexibility without causing discomfort in your joints. Our trained instructors will lead you through exercises specifically designed to help improve the range of motion in your muscles and joints by using the resistance of the water to improve muscle tone in a safe and pain-free way. You’ll also increase your cardiovascular endurance through a series of gentle water aerobics movements that can be modified to your ability.
