Many gyms, sports facilities, and adaptive sports programs across the country have had to shutter operations due to the Coronavirus pandemic. To fill the gap, Move United offers the free #AdaptAtHome Fitness Kit so individuals with physical disabilities can stay active and healthy while safe at home.
The #AdaptAtHome Athlete Fitness Kits include an exercise band, cordless jump rope, ball, towel slider, a buff face mask, and a Move United t-shirt. Each kit has an estimated value of $100, which was underwritten in part by The Hartford.
Move United’s digital resource library features various recorded fitness sessions, including equipment demonstrations, exercises and workouts that showcase how each item in the fitness kit can be utilized.
“Approximately 61 million Americans have a disability and often face greater obstacles to healthy living, including access to equipment. With the support of The Hartford, we are able to ensure individuals with physical disabilities have access to fitness equipment during this pandemic so they can stay active and healthy at home.”
— Move United Executive Director Glenn Merry
