8/4/20: Fitness that Fits You: ´╗┐Adaptive Exercises to ´╗┐Stay in Shape

Presented by Erin Smithers, this webinar will explore affordable ways to stay in shape at home. It will include adaptive exercises that anyone can work into their routine and that you can do at home with household objects. An overview of the New Jersey Self-Advocacy Project's Healthy Lifestyles Project will also be discussed as well as other upcoming activities based on healthy living.

If you'd like to participate in real-time, be sure to dress comfortably to work out (leggings, shorts, t-shirt, sneakers, etc.), have enough space for you to move, and have water available to drink while you exercise.

Erin will be using the following item in her workout routine:

-A sturdy hard cover book
-A pillow (smaller in size, like a decorative couch pillow)
-A chair with a backing but no arms
-A wall
-Laundry detergent, or gallon of water
-2 soup cans or 2 tomato sauce jars
-A hand towel
-2 tote bags
