Sport NSW recently announced the launch of the Active Abilities Series – by people with a disability, for people with a disability.
During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, Murray Elbourn, Disability Inclusion Manager at Sport NSW, identified the scarcity of specific online exercise content for people with a disability – despite the increasing options for able-bodied people.
Sport NSW collaborated with Rachelle Sultana, Head Exercise Physiologist at Healthstin, seven incredible NSW and Australian representative athletes from across the physical, sensory and intellectual disability spectrum, and the team from Hustle Media to create workout sessions for people with disabilities.
The program features three levels: 10-minute introductory, 15-minute intermediate and 30-minute sport participant exercises that are designed for the following disabilities:
Blind or Low Vision
Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Acquired Brain Injury
Quadriplegia & Paraplegia
