I have been dealing with physical limitations since I had surgery for cancer, I no longer have adductor muscles, along with other missing parts, hip, bones etc... So alot of the exercises that are on here are not possible for me to do..however, there are some that I can do. Bottom line, I will do what I am capable of doing and keep exercising despite the pain(everyday thing). Thanks for the encouragement. Report

Very helpful for me since I have limited mobility and balance. I also cannot stand more than a minute without just collapsing due to severe back problems caused from damage from Osteoarthritis to my lumbar sacral spine region. Report
Nice - I might be able to talk husband into exercise again Report
Thank you for this article. Great ideas. I propel myself in my wheelchair for cardio, but needed ideas for strength training - these are great! Thanks! Report
Thanks for thinking of physically challenged individuals!!! Report
Nice to know SparkPeople is thinking about those who have disabilities. I'm not disabled but know of those that are, including my daughter who has down's syndrome. Thanks for the article it's nice to know others care. Report

Not bad, I wonder if there is any cardo ideas as well. Report
This was great, Coach Nicole. I'm not disabled, but it's good to know (hey, anything can happen) that it's possible to stay in shape, even with physical limitations. I just saw a television program featuring a man named Craig Dietz, who has no arms or legs. He lives alone, and competes in a variety of sports, including long distance open water swimming. What an inspiration! Report
great article Report
