Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program is a warm (84-88 degrees) water-base exercise program tailor-made for people with arthritis. This program incorporates gentle activities in a friendly and supportive atmosphere in which people make new friends and try new activities. The Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program is proven to decrease pain and depression and improve functional ability, range of motion, muscle strength, and aerobic fitness.

Arthritis Classes take place in the pool on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We have back-to-back classes on these days, one at 10:05am and another at 11:10am.  Due to limited space, Arthritis Classes are reserved for those physically unable to participate in Water Aerobics.

If you are ready to put an end to the cycle of arthritic pain, please give us a call today: 478.333.6777

“Every day my arms and legs get stronger and my stamina is increasing.  My knees do not hurt as much, and now I can get up from a chair, usually at the first try! An interesting side-effect is that I have started enjoying exercise. I used to avoid exercising and would find an excuse not to do it. Now, I look forward to my sessions in the pool. I don’t think in terms of ‘how much longer do I have to do this?’ I have decided that I will exercise for the rest of my life!”

— Flora Rider speaking on Donna Amos’ Arthritis Aquatic Classes

“Coming to the Cantrell Center has been the best decision I have ever made as far as my health is concerned. I have been attending the Arthritis Foundation Aquatic Program for 9 months… The class not only helps physically, but mentally as well, and getting to meet others who have similar problems gives me the encouragement to keep going.”  [Click here to read the full story.]
