Disability Fitness Programs

Exercising several days a week is recommended for good health, and that’s no different for people with disabilities. In fact, it may be even more important for those with disabilities. Exercise combined with stress management, good nutrition and social support are critical components of a good health plan if you have a disability.

Back To Basics

Many people, including health-care providers, may confuse having a disability with being ill and not realize that people with disabilities can exercise. A good exercise program will contain three types of exercise: cardiovascular activity for fitness and heart health, strength training for strength and endurance, and flexibility training for healthy joints and range of motion.
