Sit Fit – Instructor Kathy Paterson

We may be working out from a chair but that doesn’t mean we are not getting our hearts pumping! Popular and long time instructor Kathy Paterson has created a fun, energetic class for you!

 

WARM UP
Warming up from our seated position we start the class by simple movements as we listen to some upbeat music!  Marching, toe tapping, clapping gets all of our muscles warmed up and ready for our class.

STRETCHING – We move into some deep breathing with arm movements to get our lungs full of air and our bodies ready for some stretching.  The stretches start with upper body stretching moving side to side and turning in our chairs as we stretch out your arms, shoulders and back.

 

CORE
A strong core is so important for our overall health and balance so we make sure to include some core movement, using our belly and back muscles to bend and twist.

 

UPPER BODY
Next up we work on our overall strength, using hand weights as we work on our arms and shoulders to get them strong.  We then return to stretching those muscles to work on our flexibility.

 

 

LOWER BODY
Now we move to our lower body, stretching to work on our lower back, hips and legs with gentle movements and resistance bands allow us to work on our lower body strength.

 

COOL DOWN
As we near the end of the class, we stretch out the muscles in our shoulder and neck to help us relieve tension, increase our range of motion and loosen up overall.  And finally, we finish the class with deep breathing exercises to cool our body down as we relax and feel fantastic on an hour well spent!
