Stretching the Rheuma
Welcome to the new Stretching and Exercise Program! Please check it out and give it a try. I have targeted the program to suit all those with RA but anyone can do it. The program is completely inclusive so you can be any fitness level. Use the share buttons to share the videos on your social media so it can reach and help more people!
This program is for you so I would love and appreciate any feedback.

I will be adding to these all the time so please keep an eye out. The best thing you can do to stay up to date is to SUBSCRIBE to this website.
I use a variety of household items to help me stretch and strengthen my fingers. You can also use things that have been especially designed such as Therapy Putty.
Standing Exercises (no equipment)
Therapy Band Exercises
A fit-ball is a great investment for anyone with Rheumatoid Arthritis wanting to do more in their work outs. It will allow you to do a lot more with less effort. I will explain more when I release the first exercise video. It’s a very inexpensive piece of equipment.
I also do a lot of suspension training. This is a great way to build muscle which aids with weight loss as well as strengthening. It’s an excellent substitute to lifting weights which is very taxing on the hands. I will also go through this in my program. I will of course give alternatives for those not wanting to invest in this.
If you’re wanting a little more intensity to build muscle, I can highly recommend resistance bands.
If you’re wanting to purchase any of these, you can get them from The Rheuma Mall for a much smaller price compared to retailers.
Exercise and Nutrition go hand in hand. If you want more information on nutrition and Rheumatoid Arthritis, check out my article here.
