Exercise Program
« on: April 24, 2008, 10:13:42 PM »
I caught a program on PBS yesterday called Sit and Be Fit that involved easy movement exercises many done while seated.  After looking up information on the net, this is what I found on their site sitandbefit.org:

"SIT AND BE FIT is a non-profit organization that produces North America's award-winning health education, senior exercise and senior fitness television series, SIT AND BE FIT. The series, hosted by Mary Ann Wilson, RN, and developed with a team of medical and fitness professionals, has earned a loyal following due to its effectiveness in profoundly improving the health and wellness of television viewers and program participants. SIT AND BE FIT has been broadcast since 1987 on PBS stations to over 62.5 million U.S. households annually."

There are many VHS and DVD's for sale that are programs set up for particular conditions.  I am interested in the 30 Minute Workout as it is suppose to help with pn issues.  I have been looking for a program that has low to no impact because of my knee issues.  This series seems to be well recognized and honored for its effectiveness. 

I have not tried the program yet but I thought other members might want to look at this website and see the programs offered.  They maybe televised in your area on the local PBS channel.  For me at least it looked to be a very do-able program and worth the try. 

Hope this helps others!
