Class participant Vaughan, 59, whom had both his knees replaced in 2008, found the class very supportive. “We were not asked to do anything we could not do, and everyone worked at their own ability level. I would recommend the class to anyone with knee problems, not just those whom have had replacements. It could prevent your knee from getting worse.”
