Full Description

This study aims to examine how effective seated Zoom exercise classes are for a person with CNI for addressing cardiovascular health, physical wellness and quality of life. If these classes prove to be effective, online platforms could be a viable avenue for those with CNI to exercise and increase/maintain wellness without having to leave their homes. The investigators are also attempting to determine if a class with a live instructor vs a pre-recorded class has an effect on motivation, compliance, exertion and modifications/safety.

The entire process, including screening and consenting, will be done via Zoom and Redcap, potentially providing a blueprint for the future studies. This process can enable participants to participate in studies with minimal inconvenience, expense and effort of traveling for the consent process.
