If you are on a waiting list for a hip or knee joint replacement
If you have been told you might need a hip or knee replacement but are hoping to avoid if possible
If you do not know how to exercise or find it hard to motivate yourself
If you have tried exercise before but it didn’t work (it might have been too much or too little and supervised exercise has been shown to be the most effective form of exercise)
If you worry that when you exercise you might make your condition worse
