Excellent! As I wrote in a blog not too long ago- all change, whether social, economic, or political starts with the individual. Enthusiasm spreads to small groups, communities, and beyond.

My blog focused on Health Care Reform. If we begin with our own health and spread the word, reform will occur.

Bravo...

Chair Exercise may be no-impact exercise BUT there isn't that choice on the fitness tracker - its either low-impact general or high-impact general - so unless one has their own HRM then low-impact is the nearest - even if not absolutely correct!!

I had wondered where Pilates (Core Strength DVD) sat - SP has it as Aerobic on their tracker - I tend towards strength but I enter it manually as I do the Stretch DVD.

The fitness tracker is set up for the majority - rather than the minority - despite the fact that its an ever growing minority!!

Hello Gloria and Ann,

I think this is a good way to track. Pilates is both aerobic and strength training, so either way is OK.

The only thing I might add is that Chair Exercise is considered "no-impact", not "low-impact".

Thanks for your insight.

Best of luck,
Anne

Thanks Ann. I put this on our Leaders Team and someone told me they put it under 'walking' and someone else said under 'low impact', makes it a bit hard to track. But I'll try to follow what you've put here.
Thanks again.
Gloria

A year ago(or more) when I first started Chair exercise I asked SP and was told - enter it under "low impact aerobics" and the time you spent on it!!
I now use a Heart ate monitor and find the calories are very similar to what SP estimated as "low impact aerobics.
However that applies to aerobic chair exercise - for
Strength chair exercise, or stretches, I enter it under strength and dont worry about weights and reps!! But if you enter the actual exercises you did (you can make a workout plan so you don't have to enter each one separately each timer) then you get more points in the SparkPoints section!!
Surprisingly Plates is under aerobic in the SP list (the Chair Core Strength DVD comes under Pilates)but I felt it was more Strength and stretches so I entered mine under strength training!!
I agree the fitness tracker needs to be made to cater for more than just "main stream" exercise.

I did a full exercise DVD this morning, about 35 minutes, but when I went to put them on my fitness tracker, it does not have chair exercises on there.

Does anyone know how to count these minutes? I'd appreciate knowing how to get in these fitness minutes.
