Fitness Group

Although exercise can improve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, the effects are not always immediate. “Exercise is really the best long-term treatment for the pain and fatigue of Fibromyalgia,” But as you gradually increase your movement, you will feel better and notice a decrease in your symptoms.

Exercise can help maintain bone mass, improve balance, reduce stress, and increase strength. Getting regular exercise can also help control your weight, which is important to reducing the pain of Fibromyalgia.

People with Fibromyalgia should aim to do the recommended amount of exercise of 30 minutes a day. However, Fibromyalgia can make exercise difficult, particularly for people experiencing depression or chronic fatigue.

Even just a few minutes of exercise a week is better than no exercise at all. A person with Fibromyalgia may wish to start slowly and gradually increase the amount of time spent exercising when they find a type of exercise they find helpful and enjoyable.

If you were very active before Fibromyalgia, you may need to learn a different approach to exercise now. Many people try to do too much too soon and then feel frustrated when their symptoms flare up.

Our fitness group will include light movement exercise which will help increase your strength and balance.  It will include things like:

Hydrotherapy

Strength Training

Walking
