  • Avoid the use of heavy weights.If you are advised to use weights,introduce them gradually starting with the lightest weights and always work under the supervision of a qualified instructor

  • Avoid high-impact power moves such as jumping if you have rheumatoi arthritis or osteoporosis.Concentrate on gentle aerobic exercise such as walking or swimming
