chair exercise
Many individuals with chronic pain have restricted movements, limited range of motion, mobility issues or balance concerns that can make engaging in physical activity, such as walking or using weight machines, difficult or impossible. One often forgotten option that is available is chair-based exercise.
In this type of physical activity, the individual completes the activity while seated in a wheelchair, desk chair or any other type of chair. This allows those with mobility or balance issues to exercise and alleviates pressure from the lower body for those who are in pain. There are also standing exercises that use a chair as a supportive device.

A wide variety of chair-based exercises exist. Activities can be aerobic to improve heart health, strength based to build muscle or yoga inspired to stretch the body. A combination of the three leads to a complete workout without leaving a chair.

Come join us every Monday &/or Wednesday for a fun filled workout, using balls, bands and weights. Every ability level welcome!
