Day Two Of Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program

I went to my second exercise class for people with Arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program. It was, yet again, amazing. I felt like I could climb Mt. Everest afterwards. My body still feels incredible. My back pain is gone, my shoulder pain is nonexistent, and my knees are half as stiff as they used to be.

It has significantly reduced my Lupus joint pain and my fatigue. This class is great exercise without being too strenuous or tiring. I don't feel tired when I leave at the end of class. Instead I feel like running a marathon. Also, the people taking the class and the instructors are so friendly. I feel so welcome and everyone is so encouraging. Almost everyone in the class is 70+ years old, but instead of acting like the old people stereotype of grouchy and mean, everyone is very supportive of each other and of my journey to regain my youth. And it's only day two!

Friday, I won't be able to cavort with my fellow fitness fiends. I'll be staying at home wishing I was there.

If you didn't get a chance to read my post about my first AFEP class you can check it out here.

Have you ever taken classes from the Arthritis Foundation? What has your experience been like?
