Join us for Enhance®Fitness, a proven fitness and arthritis management program that improves your endurance, strength, balance and flexibility. It reduces your arthritis symptoms with safe, low impact exercises led by certified instructors in a relaxed atmosphere that promotes fun, laughter, friendship and smiles.

Of all EnhanceFitness’ multiple benefits though, the one that matters most is that it’s a great time!

There’s no doubt about it—EnhanceFitness gets you moving. EnhanceFitness is a fitness class that meets three times a week for 60 minutes. The class focuses on strength, flexibility, balance and cardio endurance. You’ll move at a pace that is comfortable for you—it’s never more than you can handle. The group support will help keep you motivated.

In each EnhanceFitness class, you’ll get:

• 5-minute warm-up

• 20 minutes of movement to lively music

• 5-minute cool-down

• 20 minutes of strength training with soft weights

• 10 minutes of stretching to help you stay limber

• Exercise that will help improve your balance

Here are some of the changes our participants have noticed in their bodies and minds:

• More energy

• Better balance

• More upper body and lower body strength

• More flexibility and range of motion

• Better sleep

• Happier mood

• Sense of independence
