Exercise & Fitness
This latest lockdown period has no doubt impacted everyone’s normal exercise and sporting routines, but it is still very important for us all to stay physically active during this period.
For those of the all abilities community that are missing their traditional sport and recreation activities, I have compiled the below list of activities suitable for people with a disability to complete at home during lockdown.
1. AAA Play – Find an Activity at Home
A new platform which displays a whole range of inclusive programs and activities that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
2. Sport NSW Active Abilities Series
The Active Abilities Series features at home workouts designed by people with a disability, for people with a disability. The program includes activities suitable for individuals across the physical, sensory and intellectual disability spectrum.
3. Disability Sports Australia – Stay Active Database
A database of in-home programs for people with a disability.
Thanks to Tom McCarthy from Sports Central for these great ideas!
