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!

Let’s Get Stable!

Hi Everyone,

We have a new foam roller workout! It is an introduction. Jennifer Kern designed it to be core strengthening, relaxing, and a nice stretch. It is only 20 minutes long.

You will need a foam roller. You will also need to be able to get up and down off the floor. The workout calls for hand weights but you can use household objects or nothing at all. I use a 36 inch roller which I link to on the website. This length will be fine for most people.

I believe that body awareness is so important. This workout brings you into your body. The foam roller enhances sensation so that awareness is heightened.

We have a Thanksgiving special going on now until November 29th, 2017 at midnight. All workouts will be discounted 25% across the board. Let’s Get Stable: Foam Roller is normally $7.99, and is a great value at any price.

You can learn more about the workout and place your order by visiting our website.
