Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program

The Arcadia Y together with the Arthritis Foundation and the Rhode Island Department of Health Arthritis Action Program is proud to offer the PACE Program (People With Arthritis Can Exercise). The Arthritis Foundation specifically designed PACE for people with arthritis. This fun interactive program utilizes general recreational exercises and Personal Training activities to promote joint range of motion, flexibility, muscle strength and coordination. The program is structured to accommodate varying fitness levels.  Adults with arthritis who can walk (use of assisted devices permitted), or move from a wheel chair to a straight back chair, are able to participate in these programs. Instructors are certified to teach the PACE program by the Arthritis Foundation and are CPR certified. As with any program, check with your physician before you begin.

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
