I have been dealing with physical limitations since I had surgery for cancer, I no longer have adductor muscles, along with other missing parts, hip, bones etc... So alot of the exercises that are on here are not possible for me to do..however, there are some that I can do. Bottom line, I will do what I am capable of doing and keep exercising despite the pain(everyday thing). Thanks for the encouragement.
Very helpful for me since I have limited mobility and balance. I also cannot stand more than a minute without just collapsing due to severe back problems caused from damage from Osteoarthritis to my lumbar sacral spine region.
Nice to know SparkPeople is thinking about those who have disabilities. I'm not disabled but know of those that are, including my daughter who has down's syndrome. Thanks for the article it's nice to know others care.
This was great, Coach Nicole. I'm not disabled, but it's good to know (hey, anything can happen) that it's possible to stay in shape, even with physical limitations. I just saw a television program featuring a man named Craig Dietz, who has no arms or legs. He lives alone, and competes in a variety of sports, including long distance open water swimming. What an inspiration!
I am disabled and let me say there isn't anything really out here for us. I do admit this article does give you some great ideas but often that gets boring and mundane. There are videos out here for chair exercises. Also, many trainers don't want to take on someone that is not fully functional. It seems to much of a hassle. I have been through it enough times. I had enough I started my own workouts and modified them for me without the help of pros. Watch through a workout tape/dvd and see how you can modify it for your needs. IT CAN BE DONE.
