wow, that was amazing what you can do even from a seated position and still get a work out. I was skeptical before I did it, and am now happy to recommend others to give it a try. Well, I feel like I have a warm up to do my walk.
I am an Activity coordinator at an Assisted Living facility in Green Ohio. I lead exercise classes 3-5 days a week. I am amazed at the tenacity and ability of my residents to try new things and push themselves to work out every day! I am so going to use this work out in my classes! I will have to modify it just a bit. But I am excited to introduce some more chair cardio to my fantastic folks! Thanks! I will be checking back for more fresh ideas to introduce to my group! Our mottoes are: "Do as much as you can, for as long as you can" and "Use it or Loose it! "
This workout was amazing....I'm still out of breath...and boy do I feel it...Gotta add this for a regular workout...I feel it in my hips and my heart rate was way up...I loved it...Thank you sparkpeople :)
THANK YOU! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and am over 300 lbs so, I'm unable to stand for long, let alone exercise. This seated workout was incredible! I was able to complete it and I feel great! I'm also proud that with some effort ,I could do it. The trainer is wonderful too, not annoying in the least little bit and very encouraging. I'm so happy you have made this available to us.
Outstanding. I sit at my desk all day and sometimes my joints get a little stiff from sitting. While I may not be able to do the complete routine in one sitting, I will be able to do parts of the exercise. I have to say, after about three minutes I poofed. My legs were tired and my arms were tired and I thought "how great"! Thanks, I would like to save this to my favorites to use on a daily basis.
OH MY GOSH I AM SOOOO OUT OF SHAPE. I stuck with it but pooped out on the full jumping jacks, but caught my breath and stayed with the modified version until the slow down started. Thank goodness for the slow down! One minute more would have been too much. I felt good afterwards though and proud to have finished. Thanks for the motivation boost with these exercises. I'll be back day after tomorrow!
