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!

Why $19.10?

How do you feel when you hear the price $19.99? I really believe we are smarter than that. The difference between $19.99 and $20 is one cent. I just have to believe that we are more intelligent than that. The conditioned response supposedly caused by that number is outdated.

People actually advised me to charge $19.99 for my workouts. I just could not do it. It felt insulting to the people I am trying to reach. The thought of $19.99 causes a viscerally negative response in my body, so $19.99 is not the preferred choice for me. 

$19.10 has a perfect ring to it for me. My father was born in 1910 and he was a fine, generous, honest man. Every time I hear an order come through, I think of him. That feels like a perfectly good reason to me to have $19.10 as the price of each workout. I imagine him being proud of his daughter and I know his smile covers his face and his eyes are twinkling.

I can promise you that BlindAlive, LLC will never have a price that ends in 99 and knowing me and my love of numbers and story, there will always be a story behind any price I choose.
