Thanks for this article. It is easy on SparkPeople to feel left out of the all the marathon and "runner's high" talk when you have trouble getting across a room! Fitness is still important to me, despite numerous limitations and much pain...and it is good to know how to do it safely. I would suggest a book on this topic, Coach, I have one called Yoga for People with Arthritis and it tells which poses are safe for which specific arthritic problems and how to modfiy them if they aren't. A similar one for the various categories of disability such as the ones you've used in this article for Strength training and cardio would be SUPER useful...and I've never seen anything like that on the public market (excluding PT textbooks!)
Thanks again...this article is a keeper!
