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!

Welcome to our Whole-Body Programs

Our Whole-Body Routines help find balance and ease throughout the day. They are designed to give access to a wide range of stretches to mobilize and strengthen your body.

I discovered the Blind Alive Workouts late last year, was really impressed with the idea of having actual workouts I can follow, and decided to give it a try. The gentle workouts are great. Not terribly intense, but still enough to provide a gently challenging exercise routine. I also have the level one programs, and plan on obtaining more of these treasures! Thanks for providing us with completely accessible exercise programs! Keep up the great work, and here’s to your continued success!

The Gentle Workout Set is a series of four, twenty minute routines:  A light warm-up and stretch, a gentle but effective cardio workout, an upper body and core session, and a program to work your lower body and improve balance.

Most exercises can be done either seated or standing, and in whatever configuration best meets your needs. Consider alternating the workouts by completing one every other day, or doing more as you are able. We think you'll love these gently challenging workouts. With exercises accessible to everyone, it's time to say Goodbye to excuses and Hello to good health! To do this work out, you will need: A sturdy chair, supportive shoes if you choose to use them in your workout, light hand weights or two cans of the same weight, and a small to medium towel.
