Chair Exercise Programs

heart wise exercise for seniors ottawa nepean

This is a registered program that is not a free drop-in activity.  You must register for the program through the City of Ottawa.

Exercises are performed while sitting in the chair, or using the chair as an adaptive device. Designed to improve muscle tone, flexibility and endurance. Excellent alternative to low impact aerobics, when combined with walking. Chair Exercise is ideal for those with arthritis, osteoporosis or those starting an exercise program.

This class is so much more than having a chair available if you need it for balance or for some exercises. This class uses hand weights, exercise bands, ankle weights and weighed balls to help you become stronger and healthier. All of the instructors are Heart Wise certified so a proper warm-up and cool-down are always part of the class. Come and try a class to see if this might be something for you.  If you are not registered fit will cost you $13.33 per session, payable at the front desk.  Please contact the Nepean Seniors Recreation Centre if you need to make any special arrangements.
