Arthritis Exercise in the Wasie Pool
A more challenging pool exercise class especially for people with arthritis. We focus on walking, warm-ups, strengthening, range of motion and low-impact cardio exercise. Meets most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2-3 p.m.
The pool’s water temperature is a comfortable 92 degrees. Staircases, handrails, ramps and special pool wheelchairs provide easy access. A certified lifeguard or instructor is on duty. Locker rooms are available for showering and changing.
The pool is located on the first floor between the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute lobby and the Wasie Building on the Abbott Northwestern Hospital campus. On-street parking and ramp parking are available for a fee.
