I'm participating in the Unified 5K (virtually this year) to help support AdaptX in their mission to make the fitness industry accessible for individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities.
I really like the statement on their website:
"Understand the Diagnosis, but Train the Individual."
It's important that fitness instructors learn how to adapt their teaching methods to accommodate various disabilities - because we do have limits that can be dangerous to push, but everyone should have the opportunity to reach their fitness goals.
