Regular exercise is so important for our health, but the majority of the online classes are high-impact and therefore inaccessible for many. This chair-based exercise class is ideal for you if you have difficulty with your balance or standing for long periods of time.
Try out our beginner’s circuit from the comfort of your own home. All you need for this simple circuit is a chair and a kettlebell (or a couple of tins).
