How do you do a chair flip for cyclohexane?
Build a model of cyclohexane in a chair conformation. Then hold the C pointing down and push it up; and the C that was originally pointing up, push it down.
When undergoing a chair flip, the hydrogens that were once axial up became equatorial up. And the hydrogens that were axial down became equatorial down, and vice versa.
