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!

Stretch for Summer

Sore muscles can ruin a great vacation, especially if you are being active in unusual ways. Maybe you are walking barefoot in soft beach sand and your muscles start complaining, or  maybe you got a little too rowdy in the swimming pool. We don’t want you hurting, so we are offering The Whole Body Stretch as our featured workout for June.

The Whole Body Stretch can save your vacation, or just feel great in the warm days to come. It can be done as an entire session, or you can do stretches throughout your day as you need them. It is a good idea to learn them so they are familiar when you need them most. A nice calf or thigh stretch will be perfect after that long walk on the beach or after walking miles with your dog. Sometimes sleeping by the pool for too long can stiffen up back muscles. Knowing how to stretch your whole body is a skill you can carry with you throughout your life.

The Whole Body Stretch is for everyone. All muscle groups are addressed. They are either done in a chair, on the floor, or in bed.

I feel like this program is important for everyone to have so the price is super low. You can have it for the month of June for $8.50. This link will take you straight to the shopping cart. Take this opportunity to look around. You might see something else that sparks your interest.

This offer does apply to both the website and the Eyes-Free Fitness® app.

We want to help keep you active, safe, and feeling good all summer long.

Good health to you,
Mel
