Chair Based Exercise

This is a gentle exercise session, chair based, as the title suggests. People can refer themselves or be referred through their GP or practice nurse. The sessions include exercise with a resistance band, and sometimes standing exercises - all of which are extremely vital in later life.

Chair based exercise aims to:

  • Improve performance of daily functional actions
  • Improve posture
  • Motivate participants
  • Increase interaction with others and awareness of the environment
  • Promote circulation
  • Increase range of movement at each joint
  • Increase daily activity levels
