Isabel's Gym Time

Isabel’s gym sessions are giving her a real energy boost: her increased stamina during sessions means she is now achieving double the distance on the hand bike.

When we first met, Isabel and I, with input from a specialist Physiotherapist, designed a training programme aiming to improve her overall strength, balance and flexibility with the aim of helping her maintain/improve her levels of mobility.

We have also been developing her coordination by using boxing punches onto pads and throwing balls at targets which she really enjoys.

One of the benefits from regular exercise is to have the feeling of more energy and Isabel’s support workers tell us that they have seen her daily energy levels increase and that she’s losing weight, which combined is making a difference to her mobility.
