10 New Online Workouts Launched For Disabled Children

Matthew

National charity for wheelchair sport WheelPower has announced that it will be releasing ten new online workouts aimed at primary and secondary age disabled children, giving them more opportunities to keep fit and healthy at the moment.

The videos will be divided into two age groups, according to MKFM, with five aimed at primary school children and five at secondary, each one with their own unique theme to ensure that each workout is different and varied.

Former GB wheelchair basketball player Ella Beaumont has agreed to be the instructor and she also has some amazing fitness resources available to help disabled people train at home.

WheelPower head of sport Emily Weller explained that these new exercise videos are being released at a time when children are homeschooling and therefore missing regular PE classes.

“These ten workouts feature our instructor Ella, as she leads us through a series of exercises around a particular theme. Each workout is approximately 20 minutes long and they are all fully adaptable and inclusive, so all family members can join in the movements too!” she said.

WheelPower itself has been providing opportunities in sport for disabled people for more than 70 years. Each year, it supports more than 62,099 disabled people to take part in sport and activity all over the country.

It promotes participation at all levels, from first-timers to Paralympic medallists, demonstrating how playing sport can enrich lives, no matter age or ability.
