Hi,

Look on your local PBS channel for a program called sit and be fit. In addition, in the Tae Bo DVDs, there is a gentleman in the back participating in a wheel chair.

Also, check spark teams. There are some that can give you ideas.

If you head up to the Healthy Lifestyle tab and click fitness, you can find a number of seated workout videos that can help you out.

Here's a couple:

Good evening everyone,
As always I hope this message finds you well. I am looking for information about exercising for people in wheelchairs. I have been in a wheelchair now for 16 years. I am unable to walk and have mobility issues with my arms and hands. I would love to be able to find a routine that would help me stretch and exercise without hurting myself. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Respectfully,
Palma
