When we spend long periods of time with not much movement it is necessary to get the body moving. Even if we remain seated for exercises, it gets the circulation going, increases blood supply and oxygen to the joints and muscles. This is good for the body systems and especially if you suffer from arthritis, rheumatism, constipation or depression

CHAIR EXERCISE CLASSES: how is the class structured

Some of us find exercise a struggle or challenge; it needn’t be. It is often easier to take part in exercise in a seated position if you are less mobile. Participants don’t have to be seated the whole time. The class can include a mix of sitting and standing, depending on group ability and preference. When standing, the chairs can be used to hold on to for balance or else zimmer frames can be used.

BROMLEY CHAIR EXERCISE duration and frequency

Bromley chair exercise classes can last from 40 minutes to an hour depending group ability. Once a week is good. Twice a week is even better to reap the benefits

BROMLEY CHAIR EXERCISE CLASSES: what is the typical structure of a class?

Typically the chair exercise session consists of a warm-up of seated mobility and stretching. Next there is some bouncing, throwing and catching exercises with various sized balls. More exercises follow without equipment which tests co-ordination and stamina.

EQUIPMENT

Then we use weighted tennis balls and rubber resistance bands to develop strength and muscular endurance. This is usually followed up with games with bats and balls. Towards the end of the class we have a jig around to some well-known tunes. Where possible participants are encouraged to stand and dance free-style if they feel like it otherwise they can move in their chair
