Adaptive Fitness Sessions Launched By LimbPower
UK disability charity LimbPower has launched a new series of online adaptive fitness sessions for youngsters with disabilities to get involved with.
Inside The Games reported on the initiative, which will see Paralympic athlete Jack Eyers leading fitness sessions for disabled and able-bodied kids.
Jack is a paracanoe athlete, as well as being the first amputee to win the bodybuilding competition “Mr England”, the news provider explained. His fitness sessions will run twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
They are part of the #StayInWorkOut campaign being run by Sport England, and Jack’s sessions will focus on fundamental movement skills, balance, agility, cardio and coordination, all for children.
LimbPower chief executive Kiera Roche commented: “Jack’s sessions will help children to get moving, improve their fitness and remain positive during these challenging times.”
Jack told the news provider that he’s looking forward to helping children to stay healthy and fit during this period.
“I am passionate about making each session fun and accessible for all,” he said. Each of his workouts will last for around 20 minutes and the first six will be made available this month on the charity’s YouTube channel.
Flux Magazine recently shared research conducted by Menkind in May, which found that staying active during lockdown has helped many dads to connect with their kids. The survey revealed that one-third of dads made keeping their kids active a top priority during the UK-wide lockdown.
Almost half of the fathers questioned said that they had been doing more physical activity with their kids than they did before lockdown, while one in ten even took up a new sport with their kids.
