Online Wheelchair Fitness Class
Gathering Strength, Inc., is offering a 9-week interactive fitness class live on Zoom for people with paralysis. Each class is an hour long with interactive instruction and time for Q&A. No equipment is necessary.
It is a wheelchair-based, moderate to vigorous intensity, cardiovascular exercise class. The intensity and complexity of the exercise will increase as the class goes on to keep you challenged. ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER BEFORE BEGINNING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM.
The class will be lead by Ben Clark, pictured above, who is a certified personal trainer with a C-7 spinal cord injury. He was a competitive swimmer before his injury, and has been teaching online exercise classes for 3 1/2 years. You can see his exercise videos on his Adapt to Perform Youtube channel.
