LimbPower Adaptive Fitness Fun For Young Amputees

LimbPower is part of Sport England's #StayInWorkOut campaign.

LimbPower, a disability sports charity in the UK launched an adaptive sports session called "Adaptive Fitness Fun." The adaptive fitness fun sessions is put together to help young amputees stay fit.

LimbPower's adaptive fitness fun session is held twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays). The workout sessions are led by Jack Eyers, a paracanoe athlete and first amputee to win bodybuilding competition in the UK.

LimbPower adaptive fitness fun is focused on improving fundamental movement skills, agility, balance, cardio and coordination in young amputees.

According to the chief executive of LimbPower, Kiera Roche: "The most important thing for a child with disabilities is mental and physical health wellbeing. The health of our children is paramount, particularly during lockdown."

"The adaptive fitness fun sessions will help children to get moving, improve their fitness and remain positive during these pandemics," Jack Eyers said. "I am a Paralympian and trainer, so I know that the twice a week sessions will make a huge difference in the lives of children with disabilities and their families."

Eyers is not just training the children, he is also helping himself get fit for the next Paralympic, and since the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics have been delayed to 2021, he is having enough time to continue to help young amputees in the UK stay fit.

"I put more effort into making the adaptive fitness fun sessions accessible for all. We keep to social distancing rules during our fitness fun sessions, but trust me, we feel united, happy and joyous like a single big family," Eyers said.

15 years old John Andrews said: "Staying idle for long periods of time makes me sick, but I have been feeling fit and fly after joining the free LimbPower adaptive fitness fun session."

Each session is around 25 minutes long, with the first six workouts being available on LimbPower's YouTube channel.
