Inclusive weight loss classes/groups for wheelchair users?

Garza Member Posts: 149 Pioneering
I was wondering if anyone went to weight loss classes or groups which were inclusive for disabled people, I am trying to diet but find it frustrating that there seems to be a lack of publicly accessible wheel on scales, I was wondering if people felt there was a need for this? 

Also if inclusive groups similar to slimming world with these kind of scales were available would they attend?

    Hi @Garza how are you doing today? 

    There's a search engine you can use on the Inclusive Alliance website, that may find a local accessible gym near you. Hopefully some of our members can share their experiences with you. Please keep us updated.

    just seeing if this gets any more interest, I have had to put my weight oss on hold because I have been either in hospital or home on bed rest since may

    I was wondering if other members would be interested in taking part in a biggest loser style event if one could be organised
