"Sit and Be Fit" is a hit

Envoy of Williamsburg recently initiated an exercise program for residents in wheelchairs called "Sit and Be Fit." The program is a hit among residents who are unable to participate in traditional exercise, many of them in wheelchairs. These residents now have the opportunity to get their hearts pumping and break a sweat while getting their groove on to the Cha-Cha slide, Cupid Shuffle, Wobble and The Whip Nae Nae. While most residents are over the age of 70, they all really enjoyed getting down to new dance tunes. Despite having limited mobility, residents were moving and dancing to the music.
