Every week Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) leads virtual workouts online Monday-Friday at 12 noon Pacific Time (3 pm Eastern Time) at no charge via Zoom. All sessions are high contrast and audio described. Participating athletes from across the country can connect with one another while working out. Join from the comfort of your own home or anywhere. The space needed for each workout is the length of a yoga mat. The weekly schedule includes:
Mondays – Core Stability: focuses on strengthening the core muscles, the foundation for all exercise. This class typically has a Pilates-style flow with occasional abdominal circuits (one exercise after another).
Tuesdays – Circuit Workout: usually consists of four circuits of exercise, creating a full body strength workout.
Wednesdays – Dance Aerobics: encompasses dance fitness through exercise and dance moves, with different sequences of moves and switches called out as the music plays.
Thursdays – Cardio: keeps participants moving throughout this cardio workout, completing exercises with active rest in between.
Fridays – Yoga: concludes the week with a relaxing yoga session led by an athlete with NWABA who is a certified yoga instructor.
