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!

Transparency, Integrity, Honesty, And A Snafu

Yesterday, I sat and listened to all of my workouts from Sculpting With Weights Level 1 through Stability Ball Body. I am proud of the quality of every single one of them as each stands alone. I became conscious as I listened to one after the other that I over used the music loops in an effort to keep costs down. The music is wonderful but I wish I had taken more risk and had more music composed for more variety especially in Boot Camp. Boot Camp is an excellent workout and it is more challenging than cardio Level 2 but I am afraid people will complain with the similarity of the music.

I am sure that marketing gurus will tell me to keep my mouth shut about my feelings on this issue, but that is not who I am. This is not a big deal at all because all the workouts are worthy. I just need to tell you that cardio Level 2 and Boot Camp may seem repetitive to some people.

This project is a huge learning curve for me and I have learned not to cut corners. My intention is to always be in integrity so I feel compelled to share my thoughts with you. My greatest wish is that you will continue to support this important work so that all of us can have many more fitness choices going forward.

Now, I have that off my chest. There will be a surprise coming tomorrow, so check back.

Sincerely, Mel Mel
