Exercise is crucial for leading an active, healthy, and happy life. When you think “exercise,” you might think “get up and go.” But what if you could be active while still sitting? We have great news — you can! 

You no longer need to worry that you can’t get the activity you need to be healthy. if you are unable to get up and move.   If you’re looking for an exercise program that provides modified activities due to age, immobility, balance issues, or you’re recovering from an injury or surgery, these workouts are for you!

This seated and standing (for those participants wanting have the option of both standing and sitting) workout encompasses far more than movements. Chair-based exercises will develop your cardio fitness, muscular strength, and flexibility.

When to Consider Chair Exercises

Exercising can become difficult and place a strain on joints and muscles as you age. The increased tension can lead to pain and injury. Staying fit is imperative for preventing the very pain and injury overly intense exercise can cause. For any people who struggle with this dilemma, this class will be the perfect solution. Alison will provide you with a workout that will help you stay fit and healthy, without placing undue stress on your body. If any of the below descriptions fit you, chair exercises may be just what you’re looking for:

  • Poor balance, and a higher risk of falling during exercise
  • Joint pain that makes standing painful and difficult
  • Limited range of motion or poor mobility
  • Recovering from a surgery or an injury
  • Beginning a routine and need to start slow and work up to standing exercises
  • Ready to try something new and shake up your fitness routine


Seated exercise offers all the benefits of standing exercise, without the risk. Chair exercises will keep your joints flexible, improving your range of motion and mobility. They also strengthen and stabilize your muscles, resulting in improved balance, which is key for preventing falls and injuries. After a few weeks of regular chair exercise, you can expect to see an improvement in your overall health and fitness. You’ll feel better, and your daily routine will be easier. A few benefits of chair exercises

  • Improved flexibility and range of motion

  • Elevated mood and concentration
  • Lowered stress levels
