As part of their Doing Life Differently series, Disability Rights UK has released a new guide written by and for people living with disability or health conditions.
Doing Sport Differently focuses on giving inspirational exercise and fitness advice to readers, including everything from the health benefits of sport to how to get involved.
For individuals that want to be more physically active, or even those who are simply interested in watching over participating, the Q&A format of the guide gives all the information needed to make a great start. .
Writing a foreword to the guide, Paralympic gold medalist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson says:
Paralympics, world championships, and world records were my life for many years. But after my retirement in 2007 I didn’t do anything for a year or so and when I wanted to get active again, I wasn’t quite sure how to go about it. I was no longer a professional athlete and needed a different sort of exercise regime that fitted in with my new life, interests and levels of fitness. The ideas and suggestions in this guide and the stories of others’ experiences helped me to think about what I wanted. Just as you will, I found the right way for me.
With more accessible sports and sporting facilities available than ever before there has never been a better time to participate, and Tanni Grey-Thompson believes disabled people should take full advantage of this:
There is no reason why we shouldn’t get as much out of sport and exercise as non-disabled people. I am living proof of that. Whether you’re a beginner or want to compete internationally, whether you’re a parent of a sports player or whether you just want to watch sport, Doing Sport Differently will help you to do it.
