Chair Aerobics fitness classes are held twice a week in the Kathryne Jones Community Room on Pendleton Avenue led by an instructor from Springfield YMCA. The class is free and open to any age and ability. Chair Aerobics convenes Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-11 am. For many, Chair Aerobics is more than just a fitness class, it's a community and a family. While staying physically active, participants share opportunities for advocacy and learning, including Community Advocate Trainings and Meetings and other social events and activities.
Class participants have shared the impact that chair aerobics has had:
- “I have met a lot of good and kind people. I got more motivated to move my body and I’ve got my health in a good place now.”
- “Uplifting my spirit, interacting with friends, and community activities connect with new friends.”
