I had surgery on my foot and couldn't walk for over 3 weeks. I tried the Chair Salsa and Chair Boxing. Both will give you a good work out but I thought the Chair Salsa was more fun

Although I will continue every so often to enter some ideas of video links for exercise for the mobility challenged - They are all fairly short clips - so some of you might prefer to get a dvd that will give you a good workout!!

There are several companies that produce Chair Exercise DVDs -

Two companies very generously give discounts to members of Sparkpeople –
The Stronger Seniors web site
offers a discount for Sparkpeople members – if you use the code – SPARK – in your order. This discount applies to their excellent series of chair exercise DVDs – led by Anne Burnell.
Unfortunately Stronger Seniors don’t post overseas – but Amazon caries the DVDs for those overseas countries that they post to.

And ChairDancing International who give a 20% discount to members – use the coupon code A15Q2673E.
Chair Dancing International will post overseas

There are also a number of different DVDs available on Amazon (search - Chair Exercise DVDs) - from gentle exercise, through strength and exercise bands - to aerobic dvds and even Chair Salsa!!

By the way - if you get Chair Salsa - its a great workoutm I love it!! - with fairly fast music and movements - then please ensure you have a striong chair!! I broke my chair doing that DVD!!


Everyone smiles in the same language.
