Doylestown, PA – August 21, 2017 – BlindAlive™ founder, Mel Scott, announced the release of new programs within Eyes-Free Fitness®, herpopular series of health and exercise programs for the blind and visually impaired. The programs are a ground-breaking concept that removes the barriers of typical exercise programs encountered bythose with vision impairments.
“I am blind, which means that exercise videos rarely gave me enough descriptive information to do the workouts correctly,” said Scott. “That is why I created my company, BlindAlive™ and the Eyes-Free Fitness® workouts.”
Popular exercise programs rely on individuals being able to see and emulate the moves. Eyes-Free Fitness® eliminates that problem, providing an audio-based workout that explains each move step-by-step and how to perform it. No specialized equipment is required and individuals can listen to a sample of the workouts online.
Each program has been thoroughly tested by the blind and those with low vision to ensure they’re completely accessible. Eyes-Free Fitness® offers two Cardio and a Boot Camp-style workout.
Workout programs are available for individuals at all levels of fitness and a diverse range of goals. Cardio Level One is a fun, low-impact workout and Cardio Level Twois faster paced for toning and burning calories. The Boot Camp workout is designed for those who want maximum calorie burning.
A weight lifting and body sculpting program with weights is available, along with a whole body workout. Eyes-Free Fitness® offers a Blind Yoga Workout and Slow Flow Yoga, along with three different Pilates workout programs.
Those who are blind and visually impaired encounter enough obstacles in their everyday life – the means to exercise and stay healthy and fit shouldn’t be one of them. Gifts for the blind can be difficult to choose and the programs by BlindAlive™ open up new horizons.
The Eyes-Free Fitness® program offered by BlindAlive™ is just one of the things to help the blind that the company has created to assist those with no vision or limited sight. Eyes-Free Fitness® enables anyone with vision loss to pursue and achieve their fitness goals.
