Have you ever been hungover on a Saturday morning and sometime between your first Thai food delivery of the day, your third episode in an SVU marathon and the time you pour yourself a drink in order to get on with your life, you end up stumbling upon a channel airing a senior chair workout?
You chuckle to yourself until you realize you can’t even move from the couch to peel off the jeggings you wore last night and dry heave when you think about going for a walk to the kitchen to get water. Then you realize these senior workouts are more intense than the squats you do going from your office chair to the bathroom and suddenly you understand the chair-workout hype.
One graduate of the senior chair workout program is Aunt Carol*. Aunt Carol’s dance routine choreographed to Usher’s “Leave The One I’m With” (because A to the C is a ballaaa’) shows how senior chair exercises are the new pilates. I hope they start offering these classes at the JCC sometime soon!
