Inclusion to all abilities and disabilities 

"There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see a person as more"

Recent reports suggest that 1 in 5 people in the UK identifies as having a disability, this equates to around 19% of the total population. It is also estimated that only 18% of disabled adults undertake physical activity for more than 30 minutes a week.


We think it's time for this to change.

Exercise for Disabled People

The safest way to gain proficiency in an exercise regime is to have the best advice from a professional personal trainer.

At New Beginnings we have experience in training people with all kinds of disabilities to get fit.  We understand that there is no use in giving you the same advice as we would do our able-bodied clients, we get to fully understand each of our client's limitations, and for disabled people who wish to get fit and healthy, “the biggest thing to remember is that there’s always something you can do.”

People with a disability have as much to gain from a supervised programme of exercise as anyone. While exercising on your own does make the body physically stronger and thereby better able to do everyday tasks, working with a trainer is not only about improving your body but your mind too. 

In addition to the psychological support from someone who is always in your corner, you’re more likely to stick to a regular exercise routine, which itself has mental benefits – your body releases endorphins, which improve your mood, relieve stress, and boost your self-esteem. Exercise can even be effective in helping mild to medium depression.

There is no prescriptive programming with fitness and wellbeing for disabled people. We feel that there is too much emphasis on the medical side of what a disabled person can not do, our idea at New Beginnings is that we look at how we can adapt exercises, equipment and support to enable us to work muscles, joints and get the heart rate up. We will do this by mixing our expertise in personal training and knowledge of disability with your expertise in your disability. We know that we won’t always be able to remove all barriers for everyone but we can have a good go at removing as many as we can so that we can make fitness and wellbeing inclusive for everyone.
