Its a broad subject but it I’ll attempt to give my take and break some elements down with my experience and what I’ve found along the way.
In a sense, what is enough? Is there a goal / a finish line?
There are many pieces to this which not only makes it tricky to break down in one blog or pod but I think it comes down to something which everyone experiences with approaches to fitness: There will always be a need to create an individual plan.
Something else – Is Disability Fitness too broad a term? I’m not sure but I think we need to keep discussing what can be done to makes fitness accessible for everyone. To ensure everyone can have the opportunity to create a tailored, individual plan which suits their goals. If we, as a society continue to make strides to ensure that everyone who wants to get into fitness can source the tools, equipment and know how to help them reach their goals we will be in a good place to support what tweaks or adjustments can be made for individuals of future generations.
From my own experience, seeing people with my disability reach their fitness on social media lit that fire in me, one which, at its core, gave me that ignition to at least experiment in the gym. I kind of knew pretty early that if I was to get to where I wanted it would have to be “unconventional” – But then again we go back to everyone’s path will be different.
So I ask this, as we delve deeper in the weeks, whether it’s from personal experience or some suggestions, what would make fitness more accessible to you and the wider community?
I’d love to receive your answers / questions or suggestions!
