“Anne, just wanted to let you know how the girls loved the chair exercises for seniors on Monday night at TOPS (Taking Off Pounds Sensibly). I gave them the choice of which to use so they went for the ‘Strength’ disc, which surprised me. I thought they would go for the stretching. That stretching just plain feels good.
Boy, were they shocked at the work out. We only had about 30 minutes, so we made it thru the warm up and most of the aerobics. They were surprised at how out of shape they were. All agreed it was an excellent video and want to try more of it again in a couple of weeks when I get back from vacation.
We have a small room, but I staggered the chairs as best I could to get the full impact of extending our arms and legs.”
“I recently purchased this video for the seniors at my job and they love it!!!”
Stronger Seniors throughout the country are talking about the Stronger Seniors chair exercise program:
I am 70 yrs old, Never have done Yoga, Began this 4 weeks ago. I feel better after doing it, and am seeing improvement in the level of pain when bending over, from Arthritis. I can tell the difference in how I feel if I don’t do it, am using the program almost every day now. Thank you, everyone connected with this program!!!!! My friend is a yoga teacher, bought this first, I used hers until mine came.
“I sometimes think people have forgotten about senior citizens needing to get some exercise. Since it is difficult for me to walk for very long at a time and not wanting to lose what mobility I have…this is a blessing….PLEASE remember to not overdo but to do what you can…in moderation in any exercise. God bless you all.
THIS would be a good gift for your parents…and it would encourage them if you encouraged them to try to keep flexible. We all want to stay out of nursing homes and most of us don’t want to be a burden on our children, so this a great gift to give someone you love.”- Frances Carroll

Stronger Seniors- Developed by Anne Burnell, Continuing Education Provider for the American Council on Exercise in Senior Exercise, Elderly Exercise, Exercise for Older Adults
Seated exercises are a great form of exercise for older adults, for those with disabilities, for people with poor balance, or for anyone else who has trouble standing or getting onto the floor to do regular exercise.
Chair exercise videos can also be done in the office in the course of the workday when you need energy and as a easy, practical way to work some activity into your day.
Seated exercises should be performed in a straight, sturdy chair. Folding chairs are not safe and do not provide proper lumbar support. Keep your posture straight in the chair with your feet flat on the floor, unless otherwise instructed.
Chair exercises are gentle on the body and are generally safe for most seniors to do. You should talk to your doctor before beginning a any exercise program, but YOU must bring up exercise…. your doctor may not. It’s up to you!
