Welcome To Sit to be Fit: Live Longer with a Stronger Core

 Sit to be Fit

 A life (and body) changing online course!

Welcome to 4-week course: Sit to be Fit: Live Longer with a Stronger Core.

During this course you will learn how to stay fit, healthy and have a long life, even if your workplace or habits demand you spend your time in a chair. It’s been proven that sitting to many hours a day can increase your chances of diabetes, and other diseases. However, the Sit to be Fit course will show you how to turn your daily habits into an opportunity for a workout, even at your desk. We will use imagery, touch, movement exercises and anatomical education – to give you a well rounded full body workout that is will not only change your body, and will also change your mind.

Putting what you learn in practice and integrating into your daily life, will change your life. One tool that may be helpful to you is to print out the blank tracking worksheet and put it to a visable place in your home or workplace to track your progress and growth during the courses.

It only takes a few seconds to fill this out on a daily basis and it will give you a mindful and accurate picture of your progress. You will notice that even just after a few weeks, the imagery will become clearer, your flexibility greater, and you will have a more accurate body awareness. The numbers from 0 to 10 on the Y axis are how satisfied are you with your performance for the day: The 0 stands for “not at all”, the 10 stands for “very satisfied”. Also, as part of the course, each week includes an interactive questionaire worksheet with questions drawn from each video, to help solidify the information that you are learning. You can fill in the weekly questionaire by clicking into the downloaded file or printing it out.

Have fun!
