Hi, I’m Alyssa if we haven’t met yet 👋🏻

As a doctor of physical therapy and an osteoarthritis specialist, I want you to know there is HOPE, even if you’ve been told “nothing can be done”. I’m here to guide you down the path to making your adventures come to life.

I decided to specialize in osteoarthritis after I became so frustrated that almost everyone with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis is told, it’s not possible to live an active life. Many are encouraged to stop doing the things that they love 😣

After years of working with people with osteoarthritis, diving into the research, experimenting with movements and seeing firsthand how powerful the right habits can be- I developed the best path that can unlock relief, progress, and adventure.

Now, almost 1,000 people have been on this path and people have accomplished things they NEVER thought were possible again…

Whether you’re looking to avoid surgery or optimize your recovery after surgery- the goal remains the same: to feel free to do what you want without being tied down by pain. 

I created Adventurers for Life because living an active life and keeping your joint(s) healthy is an ongoing journey- a journey that you no longer have to do alone.

Inside Adventurers for Life, you’ll find a personalized path just for you.

I realized that way too often people are either missing out on progress by sticking in their comfort zone with easy movements or they’re trying movements their joints simply aren’t ready for yet.

No more trying to power through workouts that seem to just aggravate your joints.

No more worrying about hurting yourself in the gym.

No more wondering if you are doing the right things for your joint(s) or if you are making your arthritis worse.

No more settling for easier workouts because you’re scared of increasing your pain.

Based on an initial questionnaire, you’ll start in the best place that matches your current fitness level along the path below. If you’re just beginning or journey or are further along- we’ve got you covered.

This arthritis workout program sets you up for success from the get-go.

Most Loved Feature! 🎉

It can be hard to know when you're ready to move on to the next workout and if your joints are ready to handle more difficulty. In this membership, at the end of each step, there is a physical test to pass. This test helps to determine your readiness to move on to prevent you from moving on too quickly and flaring up your pain.

Over $3,000 of value

"Rescue remedies" are ideas cultivated from current members. These are short compilations of movements and stretches that are most helpful if you find yourself getting stiff and/or painful during certain activities. You will see short movements you can do to help relieve your symptoms if you are sitting or standing for a while, riding in a car or airplane, dealing with morning stiffness, and more.

No more having to keep track of which workouts you liked and spend time finding them. Now, they will be right at your fingertips with just a couple of clicks!

One of the best ways to keep you on track and accountable is through thinking of what you have accomplished. After each step, you will record wins that you have accomplished. Both you and Dr. Alyssa, PT will be able to see these wins which can keep you motivated to push forward and see how far you've come. This is one aspect that is commonly forgotten about but arguably one of THE most important.

You'll have access to over 15 guides that detail how to reduce flares, how to stop overdoing it, the best ways to build strength for stairs and walking, anti inflammatory foods, and MORE. Arthritis relief is more than exercise. You'll also be equipped with the best treatment strategies.

“I’m too far gone, I have no cartilage left”

“Pain is normal at my age”

“I’m so afraid to move because I might hurt myself more”

“I’m desperate for relief but nothing seems to help”

“I really want to avoid surgery but I’m told it’s inevitable”

“I’m so tired of being told what I CAN’T do instead of what I can”

You simply don't have to accept, "I used to be so active". It's time to make a change. Your joints are craving movement.

Frequently Asked Questions

The membership currently has 5 Levels. You’ll take an intake quiz to see which Level you test into based upon your current abilities and pain.

In each Level there are 5 steps. You will move through one step at a time. Each step has at least 2 workouts and at least 2 tests to pass before moving on. You will stay in each step until you complete the workouts 2-5 times each. Then you’ll take the tests and move onto the next step. 

This structure allows for you to only focus on 2 workouts and one to two goals at a time to minimize overwhelm and give you very specific tasks to focus on. 

  • Level 1: Focuses on improving standing tolerance
  • Level 2: Focuses on improving walking distance
  • Level 3: Focuses on building foundational strength
  • Level 4: Focuses on stairs and getting down and up from the floor
  • Level 5: Focuses on building higher intensity strength, power and stamina

Yes! This membership encompasses a full body approach. Even with lower extremity osteoarthritis, strengthening your upper body is vital to your success. 

In Level 1 and 2, most workouts are full body. Once you get into Level 3 and 4, upper body and lower body specific workouts are also included.

In an arthritis workout program, it is essential to take a full body approach instead of focusing just on one joint. The entire body is connected!

This membership is entirely self-paced. You will start at whichever level you tested in at and you will have access to one step at a time. 

We do hold virtual events on varying topics that are set for certain dates. I will always upload the recording inside the membership under “Events and Resources” in case you miss it and cannot attend live.

None of the videos will expire as long as you are an active member. If the membership is cancelled, you will not be able to view past videos.

This arthritis workout program membership takes a full body approach. 

I often find a common mistake people make is just focusing on one joint. Instead, the way the rest of your body moves directly impacts your other joints.

For example, the way your hips, lower and mid back move can impact how your knee moves. Your ankle can also play a direct role in your knee as well. 

This program can be suitable if you have: 

  • Knee Osteoarthritis
  • Hip Osteoarthritis
  • Spine Osteoarthritis/Chronic Back Pain
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Ankle Osteoarthritis 
  • Shoulder Osteoarthritis
Adventurers for Life contains both weight training and bodyweight movements. Levels 3, 4 and 5 include higher level strength training and balance that are beneficial to both osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. 
The membership also includes opportunities for kettlebell training too. 
The good thing about these workouts is you can very easily increase the difficulty by using more weights or increasing the speed of certain movements. 
This could absolutely help you get on the path to feel stronger and getting ideas on how to move your body safely. 
  • The whole goal of this membership is to create a community to bring encouragement, support, and togetherness. There is a members-only Facebook Community where you can access other members, ask questions, share wins, and get motivated. Dr. Alyssa Kuhn, PT and team are available to answer any questions that come up for tech support, guidance inside the membership and other questions you may have along the way via email at There will also be opportunities for live Q&A sessions for you to get your questions answered while learning from others as well. 

Most people in the membership complete the workouts 3-5 times per week. Ultimately it comes down to what works best for you. If you’re short on time, the workout library offers other options for shorter routines too. 

This will depend on what level you start at. You can find all the equipment that is recommended in my Amazon store. Much of the equipment is the same as the Arthritis Adventure Blueprint aside from the longer resistance bands that are closed in the door. The equipment necessary is as follows: 

  • Dumbbells starting at ~1-5lbs (~1-3 kilos) as well as a heavier set of 8-10lbs (~4-6 kilos). You can also use soup cans or water bottles when getting started for Level 1-3
  • A sturdy, firm chair without wheels (patio chairs tend to work great for this)
  • Small, loop resistance bands for Level 1-5
  • Resistance tubing that closes in the door for Level 3-5 (if you already have long resistance bands/tubing, you can also just get a small anchor that allows you to shut them in the door)
  • Mini aerobic step or step stool (around 4 inches)
  1. As a quarterly member, you can cancel anytime and there will be no more future charges. You’ll continue to have access to “Adventurers for Life” for the remainder of your membership. Prorated refunds are not available. 
  2. As an annual member, you may also cancel at any time. If you cancel within the first 30 days from purchase, you qualify for a prorated refund. To receive a refund, simply email with your request.
  3. After your first 30 days of your annual membership, you can cancel at any time to avoid automatic renewal and still have access until your membership expires. Prorated refunds are not available.

Yes! One of the key treatments to help build stronger bones is weight-bearing exercise, resistance training, and higher impact exercise. 

One of the common problems I find with many other workouts out there to help osteoporosis is they can flare up joint pain if you also have osteoarthritis.

The workouts inside Adventurers for Life give you the best of both worlds, allowing you to get stronger without flaring up your joint pains. 

Absolutely! Based upon your answers to the initial quiz, you will be placed in the best possible place for you to start. Level 1 of the membership focuses on mastering standing. Level 2 focuses on getting better at walking. Level 3 addresses higher level strength. 

For example, if you are placed in Level 2, you will also have the opportunity to go back to Level 1, if you’d like to start at the beginning.

There is great flexibility to ensure this is the best journey possible for you. 

YES! An overwhelming yes. After a joint replacement, it is so incredibly important to rebuild strength and prevent compensations from arising. You went through an extensive process to find relief and have worked hard in recovery. 

Adventurers for Life provides an excellent way to continue to build strength, balance, and stamina to open the doors to adventure. I often find if an exercise program isn’t followed after a major surgery like this one, you can risk the need for further surgeries, continued pain, and/or loss of range of motion. 

As much as I would love it if insurance covered this membership, unfortunately it does not. There is potential for this membership to be covered by Health Savings Accounts/Flexible Spending Accounts but that is very dependent on what services they reimburse for. You may need a letter of medical necessity from your doctor to submit as well. Here is an example.

Right now there is a quarterly payment option (pay for 3 months at a time) and an annual option (pay for 12 months at a time). This is because in order to find arthritis relief and unlock the adventures you are looking for you have to make a commitment to yourself. This is truly set up to make you an adventurer for life. In order to do that, you need both time and consistency. The idea is to dedicate at least 3 months to your goals as most people see better results the longer they are exposed to the membership including workouts and information on the condition they weren’t aware of.
