Rutland Regional to offer
Chair Aerobics

Rutland, VT: If you have difficulty standing or walking, it doesn’t have to mean exercise is out of the question. Rutland Regional Medical Center is offering Chair Aerobics on Tuesdays and Fridays, beginning February 19 through March 8, 10-11am, in the CVPS/Leahy Community Health Education Center at Rutland Regional.

The class, instructed by Allyson Taggart, NASM-CPT, will focus on strength, endurance, and flexibility by using a chair as a platform for workouts. The class is suitable for most beginner levels, and geared towards those who are disabled, recovering from an injury, experiencing joint problems, and/or have difficulty performing exercises that require standing, walking, or running for any length of time.

Each class will open with an introduction on a topic, a review of the exercises, a workout and a take-home exercise assignment. Topics covered throughout the course will include shoulder mobility/flexibility, endurance and isometric exercise, balance and core strength, and education on the health benefits of aerobic exercise.
