The City of Coquitlam is hosting a seminar entitled, “Introduction to Adapted Fitness Equipment”, on Wednesday November 27 from 1:00 – 2:30pm, at 1200 Glen Pine Court, Coquitlam. The cost is $5 for this one session.
A City of Coquitlam fitness instructor will introduce participants to the new adapted equipment at Glen Pine 50+ Pavilion and demonstrate how to use it.
In this session the participant will learn
- Non-Motorized Treadmill - use your feet for power, pace is safer, great for walking and less impact on your joints.
- Active Hands - provides assistance with your grip to use cables and dumbbells
- Hand Cycling - cycle from a standing or sitting position (chair or wheelchair)
- D Ring Aids - assist with pushing/pulling equipment with a pulley system
If you have been wanting to work out in the gym, and some assistance will make it possible, plan to attend so you can get going with your fitness plan.
