Trying to create my fitness programme that works with my cerebral palsy can take some time. Allowing the time to put together the right methods to challenge me but to also allow it work with my dexterity can take a while to figure out but I’ve seen it as part of my journey more than an immovable obstacle.
Entering a gym with a “standard” set up was one of the most daunting steps I’ve taken. I realised very quickly that everyone is on a unique journey and the more open I was to experimenting with attachments, the less anxious I became in those early days.
Throughout the journey, one thing has always been apparent, everyone will have their own set up, their preferences in the training & what suits them best.
For example, I never thought in a million years that I’d get to where I am using ankle straps for chest & delt exercises but they are one of the most effective ways I train those areas, taking my dexterity challenges aside.
It’s also what has kept my training so vibrant and fresh all these years to remain open minded to different solutions & as a result my love for fitness continues to flourish 💚
