I have been contacted by many different people who want to know how to workout from a wheelchair. I have tried a combination of many things to keep my upper body strong. I have a ways to go, but it is not a matter of “if” we can do it. It is a matter of “when”. So, join me and get with it! Here are some of my favorite workouts and a little philosophy to keep your head in the right place! (This link is my all time favorite inspirational video for working out!)
In March of 2009, while expecting my 6th baby, I contracted Transverse Myelitis - a rare illness that caused swelling which damaged my spinal cord leaving me paralyzed from my chest down. It has changed my life in many horrible and wonderful ways. I love to talk about it all. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
It is always raw and real around here as I share my work in advocacy and accessibility, my heart for the spiritual lessons learned, my music that speaks my soul, and my love for my home and family.
