Years of experience as a fitness professional led Wiggins to write her award-winning book that offers a fun and effective fitness program for a largely ignored segment of the population - the chair-bound.

Many people, due to physical challenges, age, disability, or desk occupations, simply can not perform what most mainstream exercise programs suggest. "Can I Exercise Sitting Down?" (ISBN 978-0595386475, iUniverse, 2006) is a great start on the road to better health, all performed remarkably, from a sitting position.

She has worked privately with seniors, children and adults, and currently counsels people with challenges such as diabetes, hypertension, pulmonary disorders, gastric bypass, and weight management.

"My clients inspired me to write this book," says Wiggins, who also owns a Medical Lifestyle Spa in the greater Washington DC area. "When they walked through my door, tired and unmotivated, I would start them with chair exercises, and they were always surprised of the great workout they received."

"Can I Exercise Sitting Down?" offers a simple results-producing 30-day workout plan that with detailed instructions and helpful photographs. Wiggins offers proven advice on how to stay motivated and conquer all excuses that typically sabotage a client's progress; as well, she gently counsels about setting realistic goals and adds dietary suggestions to continue the commitment to improving health and wellness.

Over the years, Wiggins has been featured in numerous publications including Essence Magazine, USA Today, The Washington Post, Health Quest, and Allure Magazine. Her bottom line motto "We all must start somewhere - if you have ten minutes, exercise on your chair for ten. You will be surprised how good you feel!"
