Classes are usually included in the membership fee, so find a gym with joint-friendly classes you’ll want to take. Look for aquatic fitness, stretching programs, tai chi and other low-impact classes that can be taken either standing or sitting (like biking) and include a full range of motion. If you’re planning on swimming or taking water-based classes, warmer water is better suited for those with arthritis. Look for heated pools with temperatures above 83 degrees F.
