Osteoarthritis is aged related joint wear and tear, it's a natural part of ageing.
But your work and your genetics have a big impact.
The OA class is based on a fantastic research program from Auckland NZ which looked at the impact of strength, balance, endurance and functional training. If you participate in a class for one hour twice a week this study showed a reduction in joint related pain, a 40% reduction in falls risk, and a reduction in the pain and disability related to your joint arthritis.
Our class is aimed at improving strength, speed and function, it's a two minute intensity circuit format, doesn't use stretching (because stretching doesn't impact your falls risk) and is supervised by our degree qualified movement specialist clinicians. Participants range in age from 60-94.
