What is The LaChance Method?
The LaChance Method® is an established fitness system of “mindful exercises” founded by Manette LaChance that has been around for over 2 decades. It is intended to provide simple, convenient and accessible fitness conditioning for people of all ages and fitness levels. The LaChance Method® is also especially well suited for:
- Inactive people who have been unmotivated to workout for any
number of reasons
- Individuals who have been side-lined by injuries or other medical conditions in need of a post-rehabilitative therapeutic program.
The LaChance Method® can be done sitting, standing or even lying down—at home or anywhere.
The program can be adjusted to each individual’s starting abilities and physical conditioning and is gradually progressive as one’s fitness level improves.
The exercises are designed to improve flexibility and range of motion that includes systematically stretching and performing simple joint articulating movements, strengthen muscles in the arms, legs and core (torso) that have become accustomed to inactivity or limited use.
The LaChance Method® has been successful in safely rehabilitating members of the dance and athletic communities, and is effective in preventing injuries through joint strengthening, improving mobility and balance. Its founder, Manette LaChance, teaches and operates 2 private studios including one at the Los Angeles Ballet Academy. Here she works with some of the world’s top rated young ballet dancers. In addition she has trained members of the University of Southern California Dive Club and Team, several of whom are Olympic and NCAA champions. Manette also teaches master classes and is a much sought after speaker on topics of integrated fitness and wellness for arthritis.
The LaChance Method® is currently being utilized by a major biotech company to provide patients and doctors with a complementary and integrated wellness approach for managing rheumatoid arthritis, probably one of the first programs of its kind anywhere in the world.
