If you have arthritis or are simply looking for a joint-safe way to get moving, please consider the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program. 

Developed by physical therapists specifically for people with arthritis, this low-impact, joint-safe exercise program has been documented to help increase joint flexibility and range of motion and to help maintain muscle strength. It may also improve balance and coordination. 

This class is offered by the University of Tennessee/Tennessee State University Extension with family and consumer science agent Hilda Lytle serving as instructor.

The Arthritis Exercise program is a free, low-impact program that is suitable for every fitness level. The program consists of 16 classes lasting approximately one hour. 

Classes begin at 9 a.m. and are open to all eligible persons. This series of class will be held at Warren County Administrative Offices and is limited to 15 participants.

Participants will go through a series of gentle movements and activities designed to increase mobility and range of motion. 

The exercises are designed to work all joints in the body in a slow and gentle manner. In addition health information, joint checks, cool downs and relaxation techniques will be provided. 

The arthritis exercise program classes are free and scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays. The tentative dates are: July 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28 and Aug. 2, 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25, 30.  

Participants should plan to attend all classes if possible. Please call the UT-TSU Warren County Extension Office at 473-8484 or email Hilda Lytle at hlytle@utk.edu to register by June 30.
