Not all of us need or want to attend a gymnasium to develop bulging muscles and a six pack, some just need more gentle exercise to help lose weight, or to improve our heart rate, breathing, stability or ability to walk or move around.
Sometimes our situation restricts how we can exercise, for example being homebound or being financially unable to afford gymnasium fees through unemployment.
Woo-Fit understands these restrictions, and tries to show options available for you at home, without purchasing expensive equipment or paying extortionate membership fees.
Our resident Fitness Instructor Hannah has put together some exercises that you can do at home, in your chair, bed or on the floor. Simple routines you can do while sitting watching the television, or perhaps can do with friends or family.
We also show alternatives to gymnasium equipment that you may already have available.
Before commencing any exercise routine at home or at a gymnasium, it is recommended to be assessed by a qualified instructor using a 'ParQ' questionairre, this will highlight any issues that need to be discussed with your doctor prior to exercising.
