Accessible Fitness, more choices for more people

Fitness has always been a concern with regard to both mental and physical health regardless of age, gender, or any other variables that make each one of us unique. And for those in the blind community, fitness is every bit as much—if not more—important.

Exercise for the visually impaired is something that should be incorporated into a weekly, if not daily, routine for a variety of reasons that are both similar and different from people within the sighted community. For those with total loss of sight as well as for those who are low sighted, a lack of regular exercise can bring on a host of other issues, including weight gain, sluggishness, and perhaps worst of all for many, insomnia or a circadian rhythm that has been thrown completely off track.

A quality workout done at the right time of day and at the right pace to meet your unique physical and mental needs is just what the doctor may have forgotten to order. For many blind people, fitness has been a challenge: without someone to guide you and without the ability to drive yourself to the gym, it becomes obvious why so many visually impaired individuals give up—but with the BlindAlive line of Fitness Workouts for blind people, you’ll never have to depend on anyone else again.

Yoga and Strength Training with wieghts for blind people along with a variety of other cardiovascular exercises help our bodies stay toned, help us gain muscle mass and lose weight, but most of all, can help lead a blind person away from a sense of helplessness.

Are you ready to sweat? Come get healthy and leave all your notions of not being able to get fit due to your visual impairment behind with BlindAlive!

Text Description:To do step touches, start with your back straight, and your shoulders back and down. step out with your right foot, and bring your left foot in to meet it. Then, step out with your left foot, and bring your right foot in to meet it. When you step out, bring both arms straight out to your sides, so your body is making the shape of a cross or a print letter T. When you bring your foot in to meet it, return your arms to your sides. Your arms will go out to shoulder height each time you step out.

5 - Knee Lifts

Text Description:Bring one knee up toward your chest, then back down so that both feet are flat on the floor. Repeat with the other knee. This is basically an exaggerated march. For this exercise, extend both arms straight up when you bring one knee up, and bend your elbows so your hands are roughly at shoulder height each time both feet touch the ground.

9 - Jump Ropes

Text Description:Stand with feet together, and knees slightly bent. The idea is to jump so you are getting some air under your feet. If you are unable to jump, rise up onto the balls of your feet and come back down. At the same time, bend your elbows and tuck them into your waist. Make small circles with your forearms, as if you are turning an imaginary jump rope.
