For healthier hip and knee joints! The University of Calgary's JointEffort program is a 6 week exercise program for people with hip or knee osteoarthritis. The program consists of a one hour individualized program design, 11 supervised group exercise sessions and a one hour group nutrition session with the University's team of health and joint experts. All Joint Effort Programs are overseen by a CSEP Certified Exercise Physiologist and take place in a CSEP Accredited Fitness Appraisal Centre (AFAC).
The Joint Effort Registration package is available on line at activeliving.ucalgary.ca/joint-effort or contact the program coordinator at 403-220-8814 or joint [at] ucalgary [dot] ca.
