Working On Wellness Foundation provides exercise for those with conditions that require it just to keep moving. We now provide online seated/chair exercise opportunities for anyone with mobility issues.
New! Strength Training Sessions are now FREE

Equipment needed: hand weights
Please remember that you can modify all of our exercises to fit your own individual abilities. Do what YOU can do safely.
Lynette starts with an easy warm-up then moves on to a series of hand exercises. She follows with a series of ten exercises -- sit to stand, and four different rounds of combination upper-body exercises alternating with a lower-body exercise. You'll repeat each set two more times. And be ready for the stretching cool-down.
In the future, join us for our LIVE ZOOM sessions. Talk to the other participants and the instructors. Complete the contact form below.

The Working On Wellness Foundation provides online seated exercise sessions, created and conducted by our experienced and certified instructors.
Each week, our channel will highlight a week of yoga, strength training, big movement, and general exercise sessions. All can be done while remaining seated. They include cardio, upper body, lower body, core, balance, coordination, and hand exercises.
To access additional exercise videos please complete our Contact Form.
People with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, and other conditions benefit physically through exercises that promote range of motion, strength, balance, and coordination. They also benefit from the social atmosphere of being in a group that shares the same daily challenges.
Working On Wellness Foundation wants to make it a little easier for those people by
- providing chair-based exercise sessions lead by certified instructors. Now these sessions can be accessed through Zoom or via YouTube.
- providing scholarships to the Orland Park Health and Fitness Center for those who are in both medical and financial need
In order to do this the Working on Wellness Foundation needs your help to raise funds.
Working on Wellness Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) corporation and all contributions may be tax deductible to the donor and will directly benefit the recipients and programs.
We are happy to provide you with more information about the Working On Wellness Foundation.
Please tell us if you are interested in donating, receiving a scholarship, sampling our Zoom or YouTube sessions or general information.
