Take Better Care of Yourself in 2013-and do it sitting down!

Most healthcare professionals would agree that taking better care of yourself in the New Year is one of the best resolutions one could make. Resolving to routinely exercise is one of the best ways to accomplish that—even for people living with limited mobility. And to help get that exercise, The SCOOTER Store, along with Mary Ann Wilson, RN, founder, executive director and host of the PBS TV show, Sit and Be Fit™, have put together a complimentary, 32-page booklet with a series of exercises. This booklet includes full-color illustrations for exercises covering most every area of the body—from neck to core muscles and down to your toes.

“Exercise is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself,” according to Wilson. “No matter what your age or fitness level, exercise will enhance your life in many ways,” Wilson added. “Besides being good for your body, exercise has been found to improve your mood and brain fitness.”
“This booklet is yet another way we show our commitment to keeping Americans with limited mobility more active and independent,” said Michael Clark, Chief Administrative Officer for The SCOOTER Store. “We are very pleased to have worked with Mary Ann Wilson and the Sit and Be Fit™ team to make this instructional booklet available.”
