A balanced exercise program can help keep you fit, strong, flexible and trim, all of which support healthy joints.

1. Flexibility Training
Improves range of motion and relieves stiffness. Try yoga, Pilates, tai chi or qigong.

2. Low-Impact Aerobic Exercise
Boosts endurance and helps with weight management. Walking, swimming, biking and low-impact aerobic classes are great choices.

3. Strength Training
Keeps your muscles strong, which supports joint stability. A few sessions with a personal trainer and/or physical therapist can help you create a safe, effective and progressive resistance routine that ensures proper form.

4. Stretching
Helps keep muscles loose and warm. Stretch before and after aerobic exercise and strength training to optimize your performance.

5. Cross Training
Prevents wear-and-tear injuries. Changing up your exercise routine not only helps protect your joints, it also makes exercise fun and interesting.
