Every New Year many of us make resolutions to get fit. Whether it’s because we ate too much over Christmas or whether we feel it’s time to improve our health we feel the need to get out and do some exercise.
For some people that is easier than others. If you can’t get a grip on equipment then getting into the gym or out on a bike is not so easy and can seem like an insurmountable challenge.
If you have weak grip or poor control of your hands then Active Hands can help you. Our range of gripping aids allow you to get a firm grip on gym equipment such as free weights, lat pull down machines, seated rowing machines or concept 2 rowers (for those with leg function), chin ups, cable and pulley multi-use machines.
If the gym is not your thing then the aids can be used with adapted trikes or bikes or to hold an oar for rowing. And if you’re fortunate enough to be going skiing our outdoor aids are perfect for holding skiing outriggers as they fit over gloves.
Active Hands can make your New Years resolution possible, whether you choose the gym or the great outdoors. The willpower is up to you! *
Coming soon to encourage you in your exercise: some inspirational stories of people who have used their willpower to achieve sporting success. Rob will also be showing you how you can use your aids in some new exercise videos.
* And if the willpower fails then there any many uses for the general purpose aids around the house! You can use them to hold a bottle or glass; in the garden or kitchen; to do the DIY (which is also on your New Year’s ‘to-do’ list) or to hold a wii controller. They certainly won’t be sat on the side collecting dust!
