Hi Eshara43 aka Susan here. I do chair dancing every time I am on my tablet or computer. I find it is better then doing to a dance lol. I dance to my reggaeton zumba music and its great. I can set my own pace when I do it. Sometimes I get a great workout especially the upper body where I need it the most. Anyways I am going to be doing it again tonight and this time I will throw in some weight exercises as well
Live life to the fullest because you never know when it will throw you a curve ball. “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.” “Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.” “You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.”

Very excited to find this team.!!! I am in the process of organizing and scheduling my program. I have researched many articles and teams, realizing past failures of my health and not being able to stick with any program. I always began where I left off and that never lasted very long, leading to depression, lack of interest and giving up because of my health issues. Chair dancing is great, basic, easy and rewarding. I am so looking forward to all the benefits it has to offer, seeing and getting results but most importantly taking baby steps making this journey my life-long goal each day the Lord has blessed me with. Thank you for the great articles and new possibilities!!!
Thanks for joining the team! I hope the you are enjoying chair exercise. I have heard from several people with neuropathy and other folks with bone spurs who enjoy our programs. I always recommend checking out the Fitness Essential DVD set. Life's a Celebration/Aerobic, Sit Down & Tone Up Encore/ Weights, and Simply Stretch.
I purchased my first Jodi Stolove DVD, Chair Dancing Around the World, about a month ago. I became interested in chair aerobics after pain from bone mets from stage IV breast cancer made it hard for me to stand or or walk for long periods of time.
I first had cancer in 2003, it was stage II breast cancer then. It returned in 2007 to my bones, now it's stage IV. I have been on chemo since April of 2010, and right now getting radiation to part of my spine and to my right hip, where I have bone mets causing pain.
I use to work retail until November 2008, had to quit because of the fatigue from my cancer treatments. I am single and have 2 kitties that are my babies.
My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.
Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
