Children and Young People
With current Government advice recommending against non-essential contact and all unnecessary travel, British Blind Sport is joining with Sport England and encouraging our VI service users to #StayInWorkOut. We've teamed up with local deliverers and VI friendly activity providers to bring you a variety of at-home workouts and routines to keep you healthy and active from the comfort of your front room!
Physical exercise is absolutely essential for Children and Young People during their time away from school and when they may be house bound far more than usual!
Here, we have a variety of exercises and work out routines to keep the younger generations active, healthy and burning off some of that ceaseless energy!
We'll be pulling together some fun routines for children and young people covering a variety of high and low intensity activities and sports!
Watch this space for our own content created specifically for our members, but in the meantime have a look at our recommendations below. Whilst these work outs are not created specifically for an audience with visual impairments, the movements are explained throughout the route. These may not be accessible for those with severe sight loss, but take a look and let us know how you find them!
We've also been working with inclusive instructors to bring our users live, audio-led workouts via Zoom. For more information on our live workouts, visit our Facebook group here: British Blind Sport Stay In Work Out.
Try out our first Dance routines from Synergy Dance Ltd! It's completely audio-led, so strap on your dancing shoes and "blame it on the boogie!"
