Chair Aerobics – fit for life

Chair Aerobics

Chair Aerobics (or seated 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 are held face to face and via ZOOM.

Classes must be pre-booked. If face to face classes are full, we encourage other interested participants to join by ZOOM (contact Sharon directly for more information on 0438 890 089 or to book her classes online).


Classes held at COTA NT’s venue in Darwin cost $5 for COTA NT Members and $7 for non-members. You should bring your membership card with you to each class.

Face to face classes in Spillett House (Darwin) are normally held on Wednesday mornings.

About Seated Aerobics

The seated aerobics classes held at COTA for the over 50s have been specifically designed by instructor, Sharon Kelly 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
