What is the Chair Class?
The Chair-based fitness class is a series of 4 group sessions once a week for 4 weeks.
This program is for people of any age who cannot tolerate floor or standing unsupported exercises. All exercises are done in sitting or supported standing, so it is ideal for those struggling with poor balance, general weakness and mobility restrictions.
Whether you are weak because you have been immobile for a while, suffering with arthritis, or reduced cardiorespiratory capacity, the gentle and progressive exercises we provide will help you to return to a more active way of life.
Before joining a class:
It is recommended you consult your GP, physician or health care professional before starting any new exercise. With any type of exercise or program there may be a possibility of injury, abnormal blood pressure, fainting or disorders of heart rhythm. It is impossible to predict the body’s exact response to exercise, therefore if you have any medical issues, we strongly recommend that you discuss those with your doctor prior to commencing a new exercise programme.
You can stop whenever you wish, especially if you feel tired or experience any discomfort or pain. We advise you stop immediately if this happens and inform your instructor.
If you attend our classes, please discuss starting these exercises with your Physiotherapist who can sign post you to the most appropriate level for you to work at. All exercises are undertaken at your own risk and 3 Way Physiotherapy can’t be held responsible for any injuries.
