See an example of the exercises
Floor work is great for improving mobility of the spine and gives support to your back. You will lay on your back for abdominal work. Leg raises and working with your legs above your body are great ways to strengthen your abdominal muscles without doing endless sit-ups!
Fitness league teachers doing floor work
Laying on your front, your body will be supported by the floor and with your arms while doing mobility exercises for the spine.
If you are unable to get down onto the floor, you can exercise in a chair, but it is important to remain upright with correct alignment of your spine, and to not slump, as you will not feel the benefit of these movements.

I have been a teacher with The Fitness League for 15 years. It used to be known as the Women’s League of Health and Beauty and has been keeping women of all ages fit since the 1930s. I started going with my mum at the age of 11 and I am now in my mid fifties!
Classes focus on core control, strength, balance and fitness Teachers worldwide combine exercise and dance together in classes suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. The classes are great fun as well as a very effective way to improve your fitness.
You can exercise at your own speed and ability, whether you are new to exercise , coming back into sport after a lay-off, wanting to lose weight and feel better, or as preparation work for all sports.
