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!

44 - The Sweet Spot of Options

On Podcast 44, Mel starts by sharing some news.
Lisa demos the Relax Plus app, one in a series of apps by Andrew Johnson. His website gives information about where to find his apps in various formats.
Peggy and Wayne, her young-at-heart sidekick are making guacamole on "Let's Eat."
To make guacamole in a bag:

  • Place 2 avocados, seeded and peeled,
  • 1 cup of salsa,
  • juice from one lime,
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • a Dash of salt and pepper, and a pinch of cilantro.

Place all ingredients in a quart freezer bag. When ready to serve, smash the bag until it forms a smooth, consistent mixture. Cut off a corner of the bag, and squeeze the guacamole into a bowl. Serve with tortilla chips, veggies, or other dippable items.
You can use a different guacamole recipe or vary the ingredients and still make it in this portable style. Just store it in a cool place before serving.
