Our Disability Strength & Conditioning courses are dead – Long live Disability Health & Fitness!!…
As it has been a while since our last blog entry we thought we should let you know what we have been up to in the last few months.
The 3rd Strength & Conditioning (S&C) course ended in December, 2014 so this post is about that course and how the next one will be more of the same, but different…
If you want to know what the S&C courses have been about and why we set them up you can read more here http://bit.ly/SandCcourse2.
We are currently in the process of organising funding for the next course with the biggest difference being a change of name (hence the title for this post). Strength & Conditioning implies that all we do is strength training, but we offer a lot more by providing a balanced program which addresses mobility issues and muscle imbalances as well as resistance training to improve overall health & fitness. To reflect this, future courses will be labelled Health & Fitness which should also help to attract anyone with a disability regardless of their sporting ability (or lack of it 🙂 ).
Get in touch with us if you:
– have a disability.
– are interested in improving your health.
– don’t like high-street gyms.
– want to get fitter with a nice bunch of people that know what they are doing.
There are no confirmed dates for the next course yet, but please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and we will let you know as soon as things have been confirmed. Once the course is up and running let us know if you would like to come along and have a look around as we will be happy to see you.
Here are some of the gang from the last course
Here are some of the nice things course participants have said about us:
AT – “I thought the course was great and really enjoyed it. It’s helped with my overall strength and this has helped my cricket performance – particularly my batting. Thanks for all your help. Looking forward to the next sessions.”
CT – “The course has improved my strength and exercise technique which has helped me perform day to day activities with greater ease than I did so previously. I have also noted considerable improvement in my shot power in cricket during this 3 months that this course has run.”
NB – “I believe my strength and fitness have improved because of the course. I need to do it again!!”
CE – “For someone with ASD and OCD he has struggled but managed some fantastic work and he would love to do it again if available.”
FR – “This course has helped me greatly in managing my pain to the effect of minimising the number of painkillers I need to take for 2-3 days following the weekly session. This in turn has greatly helped improve my sleep, energy levels, and general mood. The support provided has helped me to understand more about how and why the powerlifting helps me which in turn makes me feel more in control of my own situation. I find myself looking forward to sessions and have confidence in being able to meet my goals.”
If you want to join this happy band, just let us know and we will make you more than welcome…
