Exercise for Disability

Exercise for disability

“Can exercise really make a significant difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities?” This is a question many people ask before including exercise in the plans of NDIS participants. As a registered NDIS provider, we are here to tell you emphatically – yes, exercise can transform lives and open doors to a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.

Exercise has long been recognized as an important component of maintaining good health and well-being and it is no different for individuals with disabilities. In fact, regular physical activity is more beneficial for disabilities, as it not only enhances physical health but also has a positive impact on mental and emotional well-being.

Let’s discover how following a daily exercise routine can empower individuals with disabilities to embrace a healthier, and more active lifestyle.

Personalised Exercise Plans:

At Bharosa, we make individualised fitness plans to each individual’s specific abilities and needs. Well, a participant might have complete or partial mobility issues. That is why, we collaborate with a qualified exercise physiologist or physiotherapist to create a plan that accommodates their disability.

Accessible Facilities: 

It is important to ensure the full accessibility of exercise facilities for disabled including ramps, elevators, and adaptive exercise equipment. We not just make it easier for disabled individuals to participate in workouts but also make sure they remain safe.

Inclusive Group Classes: 

As an organisation that keeps inclusivity at the topmost priority, we offer a variety of group exercise classes that fit well to different abilities. These classes are led by qualified instructors who are well-trained in inclusive fitness and can adapt routines as needed.

One-on-One Support: 

One-on-one support creates a comfortable environment for the participants with different abilities. That is why, we facilitate our participants with a personal trainer or support worker who can work closely to guide and motivate them during workouts.

Nutritional Guidance: 

Nutrition and exercise goes hand-on-hand. Including nutrition in the NDIS plan allows collaboration with dietitians to help participants maintain a balanced diet that complements their fitness goals and health needs. We can provide dietician referral service as per your need.

Regular Assessments: 

It becomes necessary to track daily progress and adjust exercise plans accordingly. That is why we help you schedule regular fitness assessments. This ensures that the plan aligns with the changing needs.

Engage in Adaptive Sports: 

Enjoyment is necessary along with the exercise. So, we encourage individuals to participate in adaptive sports or activities that interest them. There are also many sports organisations supporting various disabilities, offering opportunities for competitive engagement and sports career growth.

Psychological Support:

Our qualified team is very well known with the psychological aspects of fitness. Physical and mental health are deeply interrelated. That is why we support both aspects, and help with meditation, yogas, and simple physical exercises to keep maintaining a mindful fitness routine.

Education and Empowerment: 

We provide information and resources to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their fitness and health. This includes understanding their NDIS plan and how it can support their fitness goals. Well, choosing a realistic fitness goal is equally important for the different varieties of disabilities.

Feedback and Adaptation: 

Being open to listening to the participants is necessary for a disability service provider. That is why we continuously seek feedback from participants and adapt services accordingly. Besides, our open communication has ensured the services remain person-centred.

Remember that every individual is unique, and their fitness needs will vary accordingly. By offering personalised and inclusive fitness programs, we can help disabled individuals achieve their fitness goals as part of their NDIS plan. Remember Bharosa Community Services if you are looking for a personalised fitness plan execution.
