Chair Exercising, Why? I am not Old

I am the creator of Chair-A-Cise, a chair weight loss DVD program and one of  the question I am asked most from younger to middle aged adults is chair exercising is for “old people”  like my  parents or grandparents isn’t it?  Or they may also say it’s for the morbidly obese, obese or those with disabilities. Traditionally, that’s true. However as time passes, just as with anything else exercise programs has evolved also.

3 SHOT HANDS UP

Twenty five years ago Denise Austin and Jane Fonda workouts were the number one fitness programs. Ten years ago it was Billy Blanks, Tae-bo. Before Blanks who would have thought a karate workout with people dressed in military attire would be a great idea. After Blanks did you think it could get any more intense. Well today there is Insanity with Shawn T and P90X with Tony Hornton. Just as time will continue to pass tomorrow there will be somebody else with another innovative fitness program..

Well times have also changed with chair exercising. Sure you still have some of the slow paced DVDs with movements to just keep you active. However, now chair exercise workouts such as Chair-A-Cise are now focused on weight loss by incorporating moderate to intense cardio, aerobics and strength training. Chair exercise programs have become innovative to include many of the most popular standing exercises. The tempo of the music and exercises are also identical to standing workouts. The popularity of fast paced chair programs is growing in interest  from kids, to younger and middle aged adults. Additionally  you have “super seniors”,  those who were very active years ago (perhaps doing tae-bo) but still desire a program which is challenging and intense but with simple movements and is effective. So come on and jump on the bandwagon or should I say have a seat and give it a try. (For more information on chair exercise weight loss programs visit www.chairacise.com ).
