Our Arthritis Foundation Aquatics Program (AFAP) and Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program (AFEP) have been a huge success since they were first introduced in 1983. Many of you have been participating in these classes for 25 years, or maybe you just started. But hopefully all of you have seen improvements in your daily activities. The Arthritis Foundation continues to review this program to see what needs fixing to keep it as up-to-date as possible.

As if May 1st, we’d like to introduce our new and improved AFAP and AFEP classes! We are starting to recertify current instructors, and train new instructors, in these programs. New exercises have been added, new educational materials have been introduced and much more! Controlling your arthritis is our goal, and with these new programs we hope that you can achieve this. The best thing to remember? Keep moving, even when it hurts! And don’t forget to attend one of our Arthritis Walks in May near you to keep moving, spread the word, and fight for a cure!
