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!

What is a Boot Camp workout?

It is called “Boot Camp” because it is a military style workout. It is fast paced to keep heart rate up and it builds strength at the same time. It is truly not for the feint of heart.

Shana, our fitness expert has designed a 30 minute, high intensity Boot Camp workout. I heard an initial recording today. Once again, she has nailed the description. I will make a few changes but she is a natural which you already know if you have heard any of the other programs.

The exercises are arranged in 2 sets. Each individual move is 45 seconds for the first set and 30 for the second. This is such a great way to do it because psychologically it seems easier that way. There are push-ups, high-knees, and much more. They will be fully described in the flow of the workout just like our other workouts. I will record more detailed descriptions on the website and youtube.

Can you tell that I am excited? Release date is not yet determined - but soon!.

Now through December 26th, you can get 2 workouts for the price of 1 at http://www.blindalive.com/buy-fitness-workouts-friends-special
