This Seated Exercise course will be delivered face-to-face from Broadstairs Adult Education Centre. It has been developed because exercise is important for all of us, it boosts our energy and our mood and can help to improve our fitness and flexibility, and we believe it is equally important for those who need take their exercise sitting down, for whatever reason.
At the end of this course students will be able to:
- Work to their own level in a seated warm up session which mobilises the major joints and muscle groups.
- Demonstrate co-ordinated and rhythmic movement to music whilst seated.
- Use resistance bands whilst seated to develop strength.
- Safely stretch all major muscle groups while seated.
- Learn how to exercise safely at home.
How will I be taught?
You will be taught by a qualified instructor. Teaching methods will include demonstration, explanation, discussion and times for question and answer sessions. Your tutor will demonstrate movements and talk you through all exercises. You will be required to complete a pre course health and fitness questionnaire and during the lessons you will be carefully observed to ensure that you are working safely. You will also be encouraged to monitor and record your progression through the course on an Individual Learning Plan, which your tutor will also use to give you feedback on your progress. At the end of the course you and your tutor will assess the progress you have made.
What do I need to bring with me?
Bring a positive attitude and a desire to exercise whilst meeting other people. You should wear loose clothing so you can comfortably move your arms and legs. If you are a wheelchair user, it will be useful if the sides can be removed. You may wish to bring a bottle of water.
What can I do next?
Your tutor can advise.
What do I need to join the course
There are no special entry stipulations. This course is suitable for those who would feel more comfortable exercising whilst seated, for whatever reason, including those in a wheelchair of recovering from a Stroke (if you would like to bring a carer or support person with you, please just ask). If you wish to discuss any special requirements to do with access or support please let us know when you enrol.
