Three Pillars of Fitness runs Chair based exercise classes each week, one is at Peacehaven Town Council (Community House) on Monday mornings and one at The Methodist Church in Woodingdean on Wednesday mornings.
Move it or Lose it™ is great fun and we always include a game.
Move it or lose it™ (chair based fitness)
is for you if…..
You are older and want to move more (whilst having fun) or if you’ve never really enjoyed exercise but want to. Perhaps you used to be very active but haven’t done exercise for an extended period.
You want to improve: Flexibility, Aerobic fitness (heart and lungs), or if you are looking to prevent muscle wastage (sarcopenia).
You have fallen and want to improve strength / fitness/ balance and remain independant.
You want to meet likeminded people to socialise (we have great fun, we often play co ordination and memory based games).
You suffer a condition such as COPD, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia or Osteoporosis and have been advised to be more active.

FLEXIBILITY AEROBIC BALANCE & STRENGTH
The class is split into four sections: 1. Flexibility to aid with movement and stretching, 2. Aerobic fitness to help heart and lung health, 3. Balance (to prevent falling) and Strenth. Here is Kate, who has had a knee replacement- working to strengthen her front upper leg aka quadriceps.
FUN AND FITNESS
Here is Gloria, Gail, Pam. These wonderful ladies come back week after week because the class is fun and enjoyable -their smiles say it all.
Gail suffers with an old shoulder injury and is still able to participate and enjoy the sessions.

In the top half of the picture we have Gail and Josie, below is Maureen and Gail. Move it or lose it does exactly as it says on the tin! As we age movement becomes more difficult due to muscle mass reduction called sarcopenia. Did you know that we lose between 0.5 and 1% muscle mass per year after the age of 50?. In order to retain our muscles we must use it!
This is a game called shadow taps which helps our class members to reach, rotate and squat- all movements which we use daily.
50’s & 60’s Music
This is our group in Woodingdean, as you can see the chair is there if needed. All exercises are taught with an option to be in the chair, standing to the side of the chair for support or freestanding. On the left of the picture is out client Pam, she loves to dance and it helps with her breathlessness.
This is what our client Pam thinks of our Move it or Lose it™ classes
