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!

Back to Basics

I love to scan article headlines and read about the newest findings and trends in health and medicine. However, all this seeking for the newest and the best causes me to ignore what I already know. Some things have been around for years. They’re not new or shiny, but they’re full of common sense. Most startling perhaps is that they actually work.

This is true of cardio. It’s wonderful at strengthening your heart, promoting weight loss or maintenance, lowering blood pressure, and provides a host of other benefits.

We’re featuring this workout for the month of September at the reduced price of $8.99. Why are we doing this? Besides the fact that cardio exercise has so many benefits, the Cardio Level One Workout is the first ever described audio produced by BlindAlive. It’s a great introduction to those who are new to exercise, or who are maybe just getting back into it.

Cardio Level One also has the distinction of being one of our most versatile, modifiable workouts. You can start by using suggested modifications to make this workout quite easy. At the other end of the spectrum, we also offer suggestions for increasing the intensity and difficulty. This workout can grow as you do and can help you see substantial improvements.

To learn more about this workout, you can read a post Mel wrote about it. To learn even more… take the plunge, purchase the workout, and your heart will thank you!
