Seated Aerobics (or chair aerobics) classes for seniors at COTA NT in Spillett House have been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Seated Aerobics has been 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 will resume as soon as possible.
Update: 2 April 2020

Seated Aerobics has also been held in Palmerston on Tuesday mornings 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
