No Time Like The Present
Over the last few days we have shown just a few of the possibilities open to you if you go to the gym with the right attitude and the right set of gripping aids! On top of the exercises listed here, are scores of others that can be undertaken and worked into your fitness routine, it is all about knowing what you want to get out of it and finding out what works best for you.
With September’s Paralympics still fresh in people’s minds and the hunt already on for potential stars of the Tokyo Games, 2017 is an ideal year to renew those gym memberships, get involved in sport and see where it takes you!
Below is a video made by Active Hands founder Rob Smith, in which he explores the different exercises and machines open to wheelchair users at the gym. In it you will find many of the exercises mentioned here, as well as a few new ones; with both verbal and visual demonstrations to go with them, so it’s definitely worth a watch!
This is the end of our series on New Year Exercises. We’d love to see how you have got on so please share your comments and videos with us by posting them on our page or sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
