There are a plethora of great exercise resources on Sparkpeople, but there are a lot of occasions when ideas for other forms of exercise might be wanted. Chair Exercise offers this alternative .
If you are mobility challenged you might be finding that “main stream” exercises are not suitable for you, they are either too difficult, require flexibility or balance that you don’t have or are too advanced
If you are using the exercises in a hotel when travelling or while watching the kids, or to add variety to your program - then there are ideas for you too!!
Since reasons for using Chair Exercises and physical problems can vary greatly, I can only present ideas to you. You will have to select the exercises that are suited to your circumstance.
