STOTT PILATES® Armchair Pilates™ with Handweights
When working with older exercisers, programs need to be adjusted, sometimes dramatically, to accommodate those with limited mobility. Using light hand-held weights, this workout, developed by the Merrithew Health and Fitness™ team, targets core strength and stability along with peripheral joint mobilization all from a seated position. Exercises are designed to re-connect mind and body, target and improve the functional capacity of the older participant through graded strength training, proprioceptive awareness and joint range of motion, as well as bring about a general sense of well-being. Discover how to maximize functional health, balance, coordination and flexibility in a workout aimed at keeping the body moving.
