Adaptive Disabled Training
Boom Power Performance Coaching has the experience and expertise to design and deliver exercise programmes for disabled people. With disability affecting 18% of the UK population, the demand for safe and supportive exercise programmes for disabled clients is rising.
Our tailored exercise programmes with disabled clients teach each individual the skills needed to progress, enjoy and most of all achieve something amazing. It also covers the principles of exercise for disabled people, understanding the ethical issues surrounding disability, and knowing the implications of conditions and impairments when working with disabled clients.
When training someone with a disability you really need to think outside of the box. The same fitness principles apply but it is all about adaptation and overcoming obstacles. In many cases it’s about working out ways to raise the heart rate without using the legs. Often a simple circuit switching exercise between abdominal and upper body can achieve the same result.
Anything which gets your heart rate up is a cardiovascular exercise. It can be done with weights, arms, abs, legs or a combination of all of those. We can work with whatever combination you are happy with. It just needs to be consistent or repetitive and with clear progression for you. Building your strength keeps you strong, functional and helps prevent weight gain and boosts your immune system. We will find the correct balance for you.
