WheelPower have a set of online video workouts for disabled children and young people to keep them active during lockdown! All workouts are seated and videos use automated captions, and they can be accessed for free at a time that suits you.

Aimed specifically at primary and secondary aged disabled children, these videos have been released to assist parents and teachers with the provision of PE during Lockdown 3.0, and provide new and exciting opportunities for disabled children to stay fit and healthy during this challenging period.

The 10 new workout videos will be split into two age groups. five will be primary focussed, and five secondary focussed, and each comes with its own unique theme, meaning that every workout is different and varied. The videos will be available on the WheelPower website and on their YouTube Channel. Four videos were released on 11th January 2021, two primary focussed and two secondary focussed, and the rest will be released in due course. 

We are delighted that Ella Beaumont has agreed to be the instructor for these new videos. Ella is a former GB Wheelchair Basketball player, and throughout the pandemic has created some fantastic fitness resources for disabled people to enjoy from their homes. She is passionate about helping people with disabilities to stay active and has become well known online for her use of everyday household equipment within her routines!
