Seated Aerobics (or chair aerobics) is part of our Fit for Life program, which encourages seniors to stay healthy, grow stronger and to improve their mobility, strength, flexibility and balance. Classes have resumed for COTA NT members at Spillett House (July 2020) with a limit of 12 people attending.
Classes must be pre-booked. If classes are full, we encourage other interested participants to join by ZOOM (contact Sharon directly for more information on 0438 890 089). For class schedules and bookings, visit our online calendar (or call us on 8941 1004 during office hours). If you can book online for face-to-face classes, we strongly advise doing so – you will require your COTA membership number.
Face to face classes in Spillett House (Darwin) are normally held on Wednesday mornings.
Supported by Regis Aged Care & Regis Home Care
Seated Aerobics is also held on Tuesday mornings in Greenfield Living Retirement Village Community Centre, Durack (Palmerston) as part of a federally-funded Live Longer Live Stronger program. View COTA NT’s activities calendar for more details.
The seated aerobics classes held at COTA for the over 50s have been specifically designed by instructor, Sharon Kelly of Results Personal Health & Fitness Coaching for those who want to keep active, but cannot join in with activities such as walking, cycling, pilates or aerobics classes. The gentle sitting exercises taught by Sharon can also be done at home and are designed to help improve mobility and prevent falls.
“Attended my first Chair Pilates class last week and loved it. I felt this class would suit people who have back issues and are unable to do exercise on the floor. Sharon was terrific and I was surprised how hard we worked. I intend making it a regular when I am in town. Thanks Steph and Sharon.” Suzie Berger
