You will enjoy learning how to engage participants in chair-based exercises and understand the value of chair-based exercise with frailer adults and disabled adults.

Who is this course for?

This qualification was created specifically with carers and volunteers in mind to enhance the lives of those in retirement/ care homes through seated physical activity.

It also is a perfect addition to the skillset of the Exercise to Music Instructor as it is a very rewarding way of working without the same amount of personal physical activity required for a regular group exercise class.

This course is divided over four days covering:

The values and principles of adult social care

Effects that ageing, disability and inactivity can have on the body systems

Health and functional benefits of chair-based exercise for frailer older adults and disabled adults including :

  • Joints
  • Muscles
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Nerves
  • Posture
What is the pre-requisite?

As this is an entry level qualification no previous experience or qualification is required, however a basic understanding of health & fitness would be helpful.

How much does it cost?

The full cost of the Level 2 Chair Based Exercise course is £495.00

Where is this training course held?

We are delighted to announce that as of 24th August 2018 we are moving to a new home. The move is geographically small and at the same time a big leap!

Our Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications have been delivered at Queen Margaret University Sports Centre by our very own EnergyWise Academy tutors for a couple of years. It makes sense to have all our training courses under one roof and the benefits to you the student are as follows:

  • Excellent parking with no restrictions
  • Lothian bus services right to the door
  • Musselburgh Train Station is on the campus …only 6 mins train ride from Waverley station
  • Starbucks coffee shop on site
  • Maggie’s Café/Bar on site serving snacks, breakfast, lunch & dinners
  • Potential overnight accommodation in student residence (subject to term/holidays)
