Topic Recommendations for Chair Exercise DVD's Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

My PWP is now pretty much confined to chairs/wheelchairs, and no longer can navigate with a walker or rollator. However, this is a recent development and I think it may be because she is not getting the proper exercise.

Can anyone recommend DVD's for chair exercises geared toward strengthening legs, arms, stamina, etc.? Anything specifically for PD'rs would be ideal, of course.

My PWP has always been keen about exercising with DVD's/tapes, so I think this would be an effective way to motivate her on a daily basis.

Here is a link to David Zid's Parkinson Exercise DVD http://www.amazon.com/Delay-Disease-Exercise-Parkinsons/dp/1424332087

David is a personal trainer & works with PWP with great success. His exercises are easy to do. We've seen David at several Parkinson's events & he is awesome. Good luck. You are fortunate you PWP is willing to exercise - mine will not.
