Adaptive Fitness Equipment Recommendations (part deuce)

Hey Team,

Recently one of my most popular posts was published on the largest personal trainer development site on the net, The PTDC.

If you haven't seen it yet, you can check it out here: http://www.theptdc.com/2014/03/disability-fitness/

I'm very happy that so many people have found it to be helpful, I've received a lot of positive feedback.

I also wanted to thank everyone that sent in the suggestions to add to the list and decided to post them here for all to see.

Catalyst Fitness made recommendations to include:

Redcord

&

The Surge 180 or Surge 360

other comments recommended:

Concept2 Rower

and

The Wheelchair gym

I like all of the above suggestions and would be excited to really get into a session and be as creative as possible when using them with an Adaptive Fitness client.

I do though feel that to ensure maximum safety of the Adaptive Fitness client, the above items would only be able to be utilized under the supervision of a qualified Adaptive Fitness Trainer, so I decided to not update the list to include them.

I think a future list I compile will include all Adaptive Fitness equipment and not just the top ten for users to utilize at home.

I appreciate all of the feedback and encourage everyone to send in any recommendations they may think would benefit an Adaptive Fitness clients training session.

Keep Fighting, Never Give up!
