Workouts for those who have limited mobility and wheelchair users

Disclaimer: I am not a fitness professional and the following workouts are ones that I have personally benefited from. With any type of workout, there is always the possibility of getting injured I am not liable for any of these injuries. If you attempt these workouts you are doing so at your own risk. 



When you are a wheelchair user getting in a good cardio session can sometimes be difficult. Lucy Wyndham- Read shows you how you can combine strength training and cardio without lifting a  single weight.


This workout doesn’t work? Don’t let Cassey’s bubbly personality fool you! That was what I originally thought when I did my first Blogilates video but to my surprise, they were much harder than I had anticipated(after completing my first Blogilates video I was sore for three days) Cassey very rarely incorporates weights in her routines but that doesn’t mean it will be easy. In this video, Cassey is standing but it can totally be done in the seated position I never do them standing and I still get just as good of a workout! Give the video a try to see for yourself. If you try this video and think to yourself this is easy, Cassey recommends doing her videos four times through if that is your only workout of the day.


Have you just started to workout again? You may not be ready for some of the advanced workouts that YouTube has to offer and that is okay. This may be the workout for you Cassey takes you through a beginner’s upper body workout! This video does not require weights but can always be incorporated if you would like.


Do you get bored while working out? I totally get it before I started Blogilates I had the same problem. Cassey’s mission is to make fitness fun and this video does just that. This song challenge is no more than three to four minutes but is one of my favorites because it is so fun to do. This is not a beginner’s workout so if you are just starting out this workout may not be for you. If you aren’t a beginner give this video a try you may discover you like it just as much as I do!


Workouts are not out of the question if have limited mobility or are a wheelchair user you just may have to do them differently. Some wheelchair users will not benefit from these workouts and if that is the case find something else that you can enjoy.  Some exercises may be difficult for you to do so you may have to modify them. Make them as you see fit there is nothing to be embarrassed about.  If you have any questions about my favorite workout videos please leave them in the comments below!
