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!

Beer, Not Lemonade

Last week I referred to putting a beer in my son’s lunch . I have received many inquiries about that so here is the real story. That son is now 24 years old, so it has stood the test of time. My husband and I enjoy good beer which means it is never in a can. The grandparents were in town taking care of the boys while we went away for a few days and they brought there own beverages. We also never had canned sodas in our house, so having cans in my refrigerator was very unusual. Grandparents can get away with such things, so there you have it—cans in my refrigerator. My son was all excited about the Lemonade in the cans. What I did not know was that somehow beer cans got in there too. I suppose Grampa bought some beer in cans.
