My low impact Chair Barre Workout is fun, fast-paced and efficient. Its a beginner friendly dance inspired routine that you can do at home. You’ll sculpt long, lean muscles while protecting your joints and improving your coordination. All you need is a chair and your favorite playlist!

One benefit of my Chair barre-style workout is its focus on strengthening and stabilizing the oft-neglected smaller muscle groups, especially those in the lower body. The majority of the movements and exercises that we do throughout the day rely on the big muscles that we all know and love — glutes, hamstrings, quads…


Whether you have a lower-body injury or you just need to exercise from a seated position, this upper body workout has it all. You’ll target all the major muscles in the upper body including the chest, back, shoulders and arms, as well as the core.

Since you’re sitting down the entire time, you can’t rely on any momentum or assistance from your lower body, so your upper body has to do all the work.

Have you thought about starting a meditation practice? I really started to explore meditation when I got my first serious injury. Isolated from activities I loved and unable to use my body as an stress relieving outlet, meditation offered a way to find peace during an uncomfortable time in my life. I started with simple deep breathing exercises. Then I explored the work of Jon Kabbat Zinn and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. From there I sampled different meditation apps like Calm, Headspace, and Insight Timer. The pain of my injury went away, but meditation stayed with me. Now finding time…
