You Want to Work Out, but Can’t Fit It into Your Schedule? Try Chair Workouts!

Finding time to work out is really hard. I know! I have been there too.  I also used the inconvenience and lack of time as excuses as to why I wasn’t working out.  I joined gyms, I took all kinds of classes in the evening- tap dance lessons, yoga, jazzercise, plus walking but nothing kept my attention (along with the next day feeling so sore!)  Nothing! I tried at-home workouts on video and DVD and those were often 20 minutes long and I felt that was sufficient. (Nope, it was not sufficient!) However, when I wound up with a frozen shoulder due to my move (a few years back), the good health “lightbulb” went off and I made a commitment to take care of my body and health. I started off with 15-20 minutes a day. I added more variety into the workouts and slowly added more time– about 5 minutes a week every 7-10 days depending on the workout.  As I hit 20 mins, then 30 and 40 minutes, I added more workout videos. I tried doing different modalities. And the results are that I like working out. It’s “me time” where I can focus on me. I feel that the commitment is really important to me and short of being ill; I do it every day, rotating through various workouts and different equipment.


I got an  email talking about Chair Workouts. I read through it and was intrigued.  I wondered if it was like other chair workouts that I had seen that primarily geared to senior citizens. I jumped right to the site and pulled up a YouTube video and I was very happy with what I saw- an energetic workout that featured exercises sitting in the chair that just about anyone can do.  By the time I got through 2 exercises, I could feel my body being challenged and that form was key (abs are engaged, legs and arms are working intensely.) I love this workout. I did my mini-workout at my desk and found that it would work for almost anyone who is tied to a desk for work.  The exercises are easy to learn and are physically challenging.

My next question was to find out who created this workout and his background!


 Donovan Green, celebrity fitness trainer (Dr. Oz is a client!) and founder of Chair Workouts has launched a one of a kind membership via his Chair Workouts website:

Chair Workouts accommodate individuals at any level and ability to reach their fitness goals from only using a chair. There are chair workouts for beginners, intermediate and advanced levels including for athletes. Chair Workouts are for all ages including seniors.
