Chair Fitness: "Practice Bone Building Exercises"
Instructor Helen Solomon focuses on bone loading (or impact force) exercises. Bone loss begins at 30 and can be accelerated in certain groups such as elderly (menopausal women with loss of estrogen, men after 65 with drop in testosterone), ethnicity and family history. Bone loading exercises help build and maintain bone mass.
For individuals with mobility issues, using the floor for exercise can present challenges. Our chair fitness class provides an effective workout that doesn’t require you to roll around on the floor. By adopting a creative approach to exercise, participants can overcome mobility limitations and continue building their strength and flexibility.
