Examine the most common  types of arthritis to better design programs for this clientele. Learn  to modify and progress exercises, and to vary impact and intensity to  meet the multi-level needs. There are more than 100 diseases in the  arthritis category and it is widely accepted that most of the symptoms  may be greatly benefited through water exercise. This program will  review exercise inventory for safe and effective exercise design based  on an understanding of functional range of motion and joint action. This  balanced program will target cardiovascular training, functional  fitness, muscular endurance and strength, balance and flexibility  training. WaterART working positions will be introduced to provide multi  level programming to help each participant train at an appropriate  intensity level for self paced exercise – appropriate for types of  arthritis. This program will also introduce the use of flotation and  resistive devices such as noodles and resistive paddles for improved  performance. Water Walking and Tai Chi movements will be incorporated to  train mobility, gait and balance.
