Beginning Saturday, June 2nd in Palisades Center’s East Court, guests are invited to “Chair Fitness with Jilbear”, a free fun and unique workout!

Chair Fitness is a great alternative workout with those who have limited mobility and injury recovery.  This program is designed to help decrease the risk of heart disease, reduce stress on joints, and assist in managing weight. Jilbear will illustrate how these exercises will enhance physical activity, reduce the risk of falling, develop and maintain confidence, and additional positive factors to increase your quality of life.

Instructor, Gilbert “Jilbear” Paris is a Rockland resident and former dancer, teacher, and choreographer. For almost 10 years, he worked as an instructor at various senior centers and at Rockland Community College. In 1997, he was hired as a Recreational Assistant for a local nursing home and discovered his passion for dedicating his time to comforting those in need. “I would like to continue that legacy, by having different people experience what I have to offer,” said Paris, “…for the mind, body, and soul.”

“Chair Fitness is a fun way for guests to get their workout in during their visit to Palisades.” says Rachel Chester, marketing director for Palisades Center, “We are thrilled to partner with Jilbear and watch his vision come to life.”
