Experimental: Resistance Exercise
Subjects will participate in a 16 week long resistance exercise program which will consist of 2 30-minute individually supervised sessions per week.
Other: Resistance Exercise
Two 30-minute individually supervised exercise sessions per week for 16-weeks
- Safety [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]To ensure safety and tolerance of a resistance exercise protocol for patients with systemic vasculitis or rheumatoid arthritis. We will measure disease activity before and after each exercise session to determine if there is an association with the exercise program. We will track any major (and minor) injuries which are attributed to the exercise program.
- Change in Body composition after 16 weeks of resistance exercise [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]To assess change in body composition associated with this resistance exercise protocol (after 16 weeks).
- Change in Strength after 16 weeks of resistance exercise [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]We will test if strength increases before and after the exercise intervention
- Change in Functional status after 16 weeks of resistance exercise [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]We will determine if functional status, as measured by the short physical performance battery, improves after 16 weeks
- Change in inflammatory cytokines (CRP, ESR, IL6) after 16 weeks of resistance exercise [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Participants will have blood drawn before and after 16 weeks of exercise to determine if changes have occurred in their inflammatory cytokines.
