Fluid Running for Arthritis

Are you one of over 40 million people in the U.S. suffering from arthritis?  Do you have tender swollen joints and joint stiffness? These are just a few of the symptoms which can make it difficult to exercise or stay active.  Fluid Running is the perfect prescription for those affected by joint discomfort because deep water running is 100% non weight-bearing. Fluid Running mimics land running except it’s done in deep water and includes music backed, coached workouts.  In the deep water, supported by a flotation belt, the body is essentially floating.  Buoyancy counteracts the effects of gravity eliminating the compression on the joints and creating more space between joints which lessens (even eliminates) pain.

I have RA and Fluid Running is a lifesaver! A great workout that mimics running without the impact on my joints. And it gets my HR up!! – Iron Will Iron Jill (Triathlete)
