Healthy Aging Tip from Sit and Be Fit TV host, Mary Ann Wilson, RN

Dear Exercise Friends,

There is no denying it. Fall is here! It’s time to turn our attention to how we can best work exercise into our new daily schedules so it becomes habit. Getting a daily dose of the right kind of exercise, and sticking with it, is a high priority if we want to age well. We launched our Sit and Be Fit Streaming Club to help you with that. You can read more about it below. You can also use our resource library on our new website to get useful and inspirational tidbits that will help you succeed. This leads me to a topic that has been on my mind lately, so read on…

Why Do We Make Exercise So Hard?

This summer, I had an opportunity to actually do Sit and Be Fit at home as it aired on our local public television station, KSPS-TV, in Spokane, WA. Everyone in my office knew not to disturb me from 11:30 to noon! It was a fun experience sitting there following all the instructions coming from the TV. I found I was smiling back at myself and enjoying every minute. The time went by quickly and after each workout I felt so much better than I did at the beginning of the program. It was time well spent, even though there always seemed to be a hundred other things calling to be done. It reminded me of what Sit and Be Fit has taught me; exercise doesn’t have to be hard to bring benefits! Click here to read more…

Easy Core Strengthening Exercise

Don’t waste your time just sitting there during TV commercial breaks. Practice this exercise and notice how quickly your core becomes strengthened.
How To: Move to the front edge of a straight-backed chair and use your arms to stabilize. Engage the core muscles and maintain good alignment as you lift both feet off the ground shifting them slightly to the right of their starting position. Repeat returning to center. Do the same exercise shifting to the left.
***For other great exercises to add into your “TV commercial break times” check out our Chair Exercise Basics manual and DVD.
